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.

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.


The Nashville Predators and Anaheim Ducks had opened the 2010-11 regular season against each other, so it was only fitting that they would also start up the NHL's "second season" going head to head. The Preds had made the Stanley Cup Playoffs in six of their last seven seasons, but still had not managed to escape the first round in their 12-year history as an NHL franchise. Meanwhile, the Ducks were coming off a scorching month in which their offensive leader Corey Perry notched 30 points in his last 16 games and reached the 50-goal plateau to earn his first Maurice Richard Trophy.

After leaving San Jose with a Game 5 win, the Los Angeles Kings were hoping to make a quick return for a potential Game 7. In order for that to happen, L.A. needed its first home win of the series in Game 6. The Sharks, who still maintained a 3-2 series lead, had won both prior games in Southern California, scoring six goals in each one.

San Jose continued its solid play on the road in Game 6, never trailing in the matchup. But each time the Sharks took a lead, the Kings responded, erasing 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 deficits. On the third occasion, Trevor Lewis notched a power-play goal with 8:21 remaining in regulation to knot the game at 3-3. Just under five minutes later, L.A. had a tremendous opportunity to take the lead when Jamie McGinn was handed a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for charging. However, Antti Niemi proved to be the Sharks’ best penalty killer, making a couple of clutch stops on Ryan Smyth and Dustin Brown to send the game into overtime.

In their first season in Colorado after 23 seasons in Quebec, the Avalanche made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final against a Florida Panthers team that had entered the National Hockey League less than three years earlier. The upstart Panthers had defeated two overwhelming favorites, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, on their way to the Final before facing a talent-laden Colorado team.
But the Avs -- who added goaltender Patrick Roy in December -- proved to be too much for the underdog Panthers.

The Avalanche stormed out to a convincing 2-0 series lead, winning the two games by a combined score of 11-2. A tightly-fought 3-2 win in Game 3 had Colorado poised to sweep as both teams returned to Miami Arena for Game 4. It was in that game that Roy and Florida's John Vanbiesbrouk went save for save before Uwe Krupp's point shot in triple overtime slipped past Vanbiebrouk and gave Colorado a 1-0 win and their first-ever Stanley Cup. The series saw captain Joe Sakic win the Conn Smythe Trophy and former Montreal teammates Roy and Claude Lemieux both win their third Stanley Cup.

After scoring six goals in each of their two wins in L.A., the San Jose Sharks returned to Northern California with a 3-1 series lead and a chance to close out Los Angeles on home ice. But the extraordinary goaltending of Jonathan Quick -- and three quick goals -- kept the Kings' season alive.

Not even nine minutes into the game, the Kings owned a 3-0 advantage despite taking just four shots. Wayne Simmonds opened the scoring at 3:36 by deflecting Rob Scuderi’s point shot past Antti Niemi. Kyle Clifford made it 2-0 with his third goal of the series and Dustin Penner tallied 88 seconds later, sending Niemi to the bench in favor of Antero Niittymaki for the second time in three games.

After a devastating loss in Game 3, the Los Angeles Kings needed to bounce back on home ice in Game 4 or risk letting the series get away. The San Jose Sharks hoped to ride the wave of momentum created by overcoming a 4-0 deficit two nights earlier and take a 3-1 series lead back home for Game 5.

Antti Niemi and Jonathan Quick were perfect in the first 20 minutes, as the opening period ended scoreless for the first time in the series. But in the second, the Sharks scored in a flurry, posting three goals -- two by Ryane Clowe -- in a span of 5 1/2 minutes. L.A. responded quickly, and after goals by Brad Richardson and Justin Williams made the score 3-2 late in the second, it seemed as if the Kings would be staging an epic comeback of their own.

In the years to come, Game 3 of this first-round series between the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings might be the best-remembered game from the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
 
In the early stages, the Kings brought the momentum gained from a dominant Game 2 win back to L.A. with them. Willie Mitchell opened the scoring just 2:26 into the contest, and Kyle Clifford tallied 13 seconds later to give L.A. an early 2-0 advantage. Later in the first, Michal Handzus notched his first goal of the postseason, and the Kings looked well on their way to taking a 2-1 series lead. That outcome seemed even more probable when Brad Richardson scored just 44 seconds into the second, putting the Kings ahead 4-0 -- the same score they won by in Game 2.

From that point on, history was made. After Antero Niittymaki replaced Antti Niemi in goal, Patrick Marleau started the Sharks on the comeback trail with a nifty redirection goal. Less than four minutes later, Ryane Clowe scored on the power play, and Logan Couture followed that with a one-time goal to cut the Kings’ lead to 4-3. A goal by Ryan Smyth just 15 seconds later put the Kings back on top by two and held San Jose at bay for the moment. But in the final two minutes of the period, Clowe and Joe Pavelski scored 54 seconds apart to pull the Sharks even at 5-5 after they had faced a four-goal deficit just 19 minutes earlier.

After an overtime win in Game 1, the San Jose Sharks were looking to take a 2-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Kings before the series shifted to Southern California. But L.A. defenseman Drew Doughty had other plans.

After assisting on Jack Johnson’s power-play goal that opened the scoring midway through the first period, Doughty notched a PPG of his own exactly 3 1/2 minutes later to give the Kings a 2-0 lead at the first intermission. The 21-year-old kept the momentum going in the second, firing a shot from just inside the blue line and through the pads of Antti Niemi to put the Kings ahead 3-0. Early in the third period, Doughty collected his fourth point of the night when he assisted on Kyle Clifford’s tally that made the score 4-0 -- which is how the game would end.

For just the third time in NHL history, two teams from California squared off in the Stanley Cup Playoffs as the second-seeded San Jose Sharks met the seventh-seeded Los Angeles Kings. This Western Conference quarterfinal series also marked the first time ever that these Pacific Division rivals faced each other in the postseason. The Sharks once again entered the postseason with high expectations, having won the Pacific for a fourth straight year. On the other side, the Kings limped into the playoffs after losing leading scorer Anze Kopitar for the season following right ankle surgery.
 
The opening period of Game 1 reflected how the teams finished the regular season, as the Sharks scored 28 seconds into the contest and outshot the Kings 14-3 in the frame. L.A. picked up its game in the second though, notching two goals to San Jose’s one, creating a 2-2 tie after 40 minutes. Jonathan Quick and Antti Niemi kept the teams off the board in the third, and the game headed into overtime at the HP Pavilion.

For the first time since the 1980–81 season, the Edmonton Oilers did not win their division, break the 100-point mark or lead the NHL in goals. But, for the fifth time in six years, they were playing in the Stanley Cup Final. Already a dynasty with three Cups in their last four seasons, the Oilers squared off against the Boston Bruins, making their first appearance in the Final since consecutive trips in 1977 and 1978. 

The defending champion Oilers cruised into the Final, losing just two games in the first three rounds, and they would continue their winning ways against the B's. Edmonton doubled up the Bruins in each of the first three games -- 2-1, 4-2 and 6-3 -- with the first two games taking place North of the Border and the last of the three on Boston ice.

After a heartbreaking second-round loss to the Calgary Flames a year earlier, the Edmonton Oilers found themselves back in the Stanley Cup Final in 1987. Edmonton was making its fourth Final appearance in five years, seeking its third championship in four seasons. A familiar foe was there to greet them in the Philadelphia Flyers, as the teams battled for the Cup in a rematch of the '85 Final, which the Oilers won in five games.

This time around, the Flyers boasted a Vezina-winning goaltender who they hoped could shut down Edmonton's vaunted offense: Ron Hextall. The 23-year-old netminder would have his hands full with three of the top four scorers in the League: Wayne Gretzky (183 points to lead the League), Jari Kurri (108 points), and Mark Messier (107 points). The stage was set for an epic series between the teams which finished with the two best records in the League for the third year in a row.
