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.
It was the performance of seven-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom
that helped the Detroit Red Wings
avoided a sweep in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the San Jose Sharks
Lidstrom scored two first-period goals in a five-minute span to give Detroit an early 3-0 lead in the game. However, the Sharks were not put off by the deficit and tallied three goals of their own to send the game into a 3-3 early in the third frame. The third period was anyone’s game, but it was Detroit’s Darren Helm
who stepped up and scored off a perfect pass from Patrick Eaves
to give Detroit a 4-3 lead with 1:27 left in the game.
