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 Montreal holding a 3-1 lead after scoring two second-period goals 55 seconds apart, the Bruins appeared to be on the ropes in their first-round playoff series. But Boston overcame that deficit and a 4-3 hole late in the third to send the game to overtime, where Michael Ryder
scored his second goal of the game to help Boston tie the series. Ryder and linemate Chris Kelly
, who assisted on the OT winner, led the Boston charge with 3 points each.
Despite goaltender Carey Price
’s seventh straight home playoff defeat -- a streak that began in 2008 -- the Canadiens came out firing in Game 4, outshooting the Bruins 15-8 in the first period. After beginning the series with just 20 shots in Game 1, the Canadiens improved their shot total in Games 2 and 3 before firing 38 shots at Thomas in a losing effort.
