NHL Network presents: Game 2 2011 Western Conference Semifinal: Predators vs. Canucks
Halischuk's double-OT tally helps Preds even series with Canucks, 1-1
All summer long, NHL Network will be replaying the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs -- from every jaw-dropping goal to every highlight-reel save to every crushing defeat.

Each game of the postseason -- spanning the more than two-month period from the opening round to Boston's Game 7 clincher of the Stanley Cup Final -- will be shown on the Network throughout the offseason.

Fans can tune in at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET nightly for a different game -- and different chance to re-live history. A complete program schedule can be found on NHLNetwork.com.

Any playoff game is intense, but when overtime is part of the equation, the intensity reaches a different level. Double overtime is even more intense as the hockey world saw in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinal between Nashville and Vancouver.

The Canucks skated into Game 2 with a 1-0 series lead, but the Predators entered the game feeling they let one slip away. A similar script almost awaited the Preds.

Alexandre Burrows scored a shorthanded goal early in the second period and the Canucks clung, yet again, to a 1-0 lead with the help of Roberto Luongo, who ended up with 44 saves in the game. But with just over a minute remaining in the game, Ryan Suter cashed in with a squeaker that gave the Preds life.

After a scoreless first overtime period that was highlighted with great save after great save, the Predators relied on unsung hero Matt Halischuk, whose wrister over the glove of Luongo tied the series, 1-1, prior to it being shifted to Nashville.
