NHL Network presents: Game 1 2011 ECSF: Bruins vs. Flyers

NHL.com @NHL
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.


With much of the talk coming into this series focusing on Philadelphia’s miraculous 2010 comeback, the Boston Bruins started strong in Game 1 with a 7-3 victory. David Krejci opened the scoring just 1:52 in, and while Danny Briere tied the game later in the period, Boston replied with four straight goals, essentially putting the game away before it was two periods old.

The last of those goals chased Flyers goaltender Brian Boucher from the crease in favor of rookie netminder Sergei Bobrovsky. That change in the crease inspired two straight Philadelphia goals, but the Bruins iced the game with two of their own near the end of the third period. While the line of Patrice Bergeron, Mark Recchi, and Brad Marchand combined for 7 points, it was center David Krejci who led the Bruins charge. After posting just a single point in the first round against Montreal, Krejci opened this series with 2 goals and 2 assists, providing the Bruins with their most lopsided victory of the playoffs so far.
