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 third game of the Western Conference Quarterfinals between the Vancouver Canucks
and the Chicago Blackhawks
was a full-out battle, and the Canucks came out on top, 3-2, in the close contest. The loss was the third straight for the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks, who tied the score 2-2 in the third period on a power-play goal.
But Mikael Samuelsson
played the hero for Vancouver, backhanding the game-winning goal past Corey Crawford
at the 6:48 mark of the third period to deliver a crippling blow to the Hawks, who had returned to the United Center hoping to cut their series deficit in half. Vancouver held that lead for the remainder of the game to go up 3-0 in the series.
