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.
The one that got away. That's what the Nashville Predators
must've been thinking after a 1-0 Game 1 loss to the host Vancouver Canucks
in the Western Conference Semifinal.
With the Canucks coming off a dramatic, emotional Game 7 victory against Chicago in the first round just days before, a road win was there for the taking for the Preds. But despite Pekka Rinne
's stellar 29-save performance, the Canucks prevailed, as Chris Higgins
tallied the game's lone tally in the second period.
Most surprising was the Canucks' energy throughout the game, despite being the less-rested club. The Predators couldn't take advantage and recorded only 20 shots on Canucks netminder Roberto Luongo
Still, when all was said and done, the game was close and the Predators showed why they wouldn't be a pushover in the series.
