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.
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.
