NHL Network presents: Game 4 2011 ECF: Bruins vs. Lightning

Thursday, 09.01.2011 / 12:00 AM / NHL Network

NHL.com

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 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.


After the first period of Game 4 in Tampa Bay, it appeared the Bruins had taken complete control of the Eastern Conference Finals. After a 2-0 win in Game 3 gave them the edge in the series, they stormed out to a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes of play in Game 4, seemingly well on their way back to Boston with a dominant 3-1 series advantage. But if the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs proved anything, it's that no lead is safe.

Although the Lightning and Bruins were considered authorities on defense, the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals showcased an astounding 18 goals, as each club came away with a victory. In Game 3, the series not only had a different setting in Tampa Bay, but it also featured a much tighter style of play that produced a low-scoring affair.

The B's were able to dictate the pace from the onset, taking an early 1-0 lead on David Krejci's tally just 1:09 into the contest. The goal ended a streak for the Bolts, as not only had they scored first in each of the two games in Boston, but they also had struck first in each of their last seven games. The Bruins were looking to maintain a streak of their own, as they hadn't lost in the postseason to that point when opening the scoring.

The Bruins had already proved they could overcome losing the first two games of a series at home earlier in the 2011 playoffs, when they eliminated the Montreal Canadiens in the first round. But they certainly did not want to be faced with the same daunting challenge in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Lightning. In order to avoid that, the B’s needed to bounce back from a sound defeat in the series opener and win Game 2 at TD Garden.
 
Amidst all that pressure, it was a 19-year-old rookie in just his second playoff game who shined the brightest for Boston. With the Bruins trailing 2-1 after one period, Tyler Seguin tallied 4 points in the second period -- scoring two beautiful goals and assisting on a pair by Michael Ryder -- as Boston posted five goals in the period to take a commanding 6-3 lead after 40 minutes. Seguin, who had just 11 goals and 22 points in the regular season, became the first teenager to score 4 points in a playoff game since Vancouver's Trevor Linden reached the mark against Calgary in 1989.

Both the Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins had more than a week off before they clashed in the opener of the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals. Each club swept its second-round opponent, as the B’s extracted revenge on the Philadelphia Flyers from a year earlier and the Bolts knocked off the top-seeded Washington Capitals in stunning fashion. Coming into Game 1, it seemed like the irresistible force meeting the immovable object as Tampa Bay had won seven straight games while Boston had won eight of its last nine, including four straight at home.

Erasing a three-game deficit in the playoffs is no easy feat. Nor is completing two consecutive come-from-behind wins, but that’s what the Detroit Red Wings did in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the San Jose Sharks.

Raising the Cup presents: Game 6 2010 Stanley Cup Final

Wednesday, 08.24.2011 / 12:01 AM / NHL Network

NHL.com

The 2010 Stanley Cup Final was a battle of two franchises looking to break through after lengthy championship droughts. The Chicago Blackhawks, an Original Six franchise, had not won a Stanley Cup since 1961 -- the longest active drought in the NHL. Their opponent, the Philadelphia Flyers, had not won the Cup since the franchise's back-to-back titles in 1974 and 1975.

Philadelphia's run to the Cup Final was one of the more memorable in history, as the Flyers accomplished the feat as the East's No. 7 seed and also by becoming the third team in League history to overcome a 3-0 series deficit to win a playoff series. But with Chicago holding home ice heading into the series, the Flyers were faced with their greatest task yet in trying to contain the star-studded Blackhawks, who were coming off an impressive sweep of the West's top team, the San Jose Sharks. The home team held serve through the first five games, setting up a dramatic Game 6 in Philadelphia with Chicago leading the series, 3-2.

Game 6 began with Chicago and Philly trading goals as Dustin Byfuglien opened the scoring and Scott Hartnell notched the equalizer with 27 seconds to go in the opening period. Then the orange-clad crowd caught fire when Danny Briere gave Philly a 2-1 lead at the 8:00 mark in the second. But as they had all series long, the Blackhawks' young core fueled a scoring surge. Patrick Sharp and Andrew Ladd scored to give Chicago a 3-2 advantage after 40 minutes. The third period was a back-and-forth battle with strong goaltending by both Philadelphia's Michael Leighton and Chicago rookie Antti Niemi. With time running out on the Flyers' season, Hartnell rose to the occasion again, tallying his second goal of the game with just under four minutes left in the third.

That sent the game to overtime, where 21-year-old Patrick Kane cemented his place in Chicago sports history with the game-winning goal to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 victory and their first Cup in 49 years.  For powering the Blackhawks offensively and defensively throughout the postseason, Chicago captain Jonathan Toews took home the Conn Smythe Trophy.

The Western Conference Semifinal between the Vancouver Canucks and Nashville Predators would be all but decided in Game 4.

Either the Canucks would lead the series 3-1 before returning to Vancouver for Game 5, or the Predators would steal the momentum before the series shifts and make it a best-of-three series.

Raising the Cup presents: Game 7 2009 Stanley Cup Final

Tuesday, 08.23.2011 / 12:01 AM / NHL Network

NHL.com

When the Pittsburgh Penguins swept Carolina in the Eastern Conference Finals to set up a rematch with the Detroit Red Wings in the 2009 Stanley Cup Final, their motivation was clear. Having narrowly lost Game 6 at Mellon Arena in excruciating fashion a year ago, Dan Bylsma's squad hoped to turn the tide in this heated rivalry by bringing the Cup back to the Steel City.

After each team took care of business at home through the first four games of the series, Detroit stormed past Pittsburgh 5-0 in Game 5 at Joe Louis Arena to put the Pens on the brink of elimination again. But after a raucous Mellon Arena crowd willed its team to victory in Game 6, the series headed back to Detroit for an all-or-nothing Game 7.

In a first period filled with scoring chances, goaltender Chris Osgood and Marc-Andre Fleury matched saves to keep the game scoreless. Then, on the game's grandest stage, Pittsburgh's Max Talbot had a brilliant second period, scoring twice goals to give Pittsburgh a 2-0 lead on the road in Game 7 heading into the final period. But with 6:07 left in regulation, Jonathan Ericsson finally beat Fleury to cut the Penguins' lead in half and swing the momentum in favor of Detroit. Then came the looming question: Would Pittsburgh succumb to the pressure and drop a second straight Cup Final in heartbreaking fashion?

Not on this night.

Fleury stopped 23 of 24 shots -- including a brilliant last-second save on Nicklas Lidstrom's wide-open rebound, to secure a 2-1 victory. Pittsburgh overcame a 3-2 series deficit to avenge the previous year's loss and win its first championship since 1992. Led by Sidney Crosby, Conn Smythe winner Evgeni Malkin and the prowess of Fleury in net, the Penguins completed one of the most memorable franchise restorations in NHL history.

Raising the Cup presents: Game 6 2008 Stanley Cup Final

Monday, 08.22.2011 / 12:01 AM / NHL Network

NHL.com

The 2008 Stanley Cup Final was a tale of two cities. The Pittsburgh Penguins, after drafting star centers Evgeni Malkin in 2004 and Sidney Crosby in 2005, were back in the Cup Final for the first time since the franchise won back-to-back championships in 1991 and 1992. On the other hand, the tradition-rich Detroit Red Wings came into the series with 10 Stanley Cup championships and were looking for more with home-ice advantage in hand.

The Penguins rallied in the final minute to send Game 5 into OT, then won in the third extra period to disappoint the packed house at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit and send the series back to Mellon Arena for Game 6. But the Wings took control early: Brian Rafalski scored just over five minutes into the opening period, and Valtteri Filppula added another in the second to give the Red Wings a 2-0 advantage. But Pittsburgh showcased its resilience with a timely power-play goal by Malkin to invigorate the home crowd and give the Pens a fighting chance.

Eventual Conn Smythe winner Henrik Zetterberg scored 7:36 into the final period to give the Wings a two-goal lead. But one last-ditch effort was in store for Pittsburgh, as Marian Hossa scored with just under 90 seconds to go in the game. Then, with the white-clad Mellon Arena crowd in full force, the responsibility fell on the shoulders of veteran goaltender Chris Osgood, and he came through one last time.

Osgood stopped 20 of 22 shots on the night and made a frantic final stand in the closing seconds of Game 6 to lead the Red Wings to a 3-2 victory and the 11th Stanley Cup championship in franchise history.
