NHL Network presents: Game 6 2011 ECQF: Sabres 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.


Philadelphia had its back against the wall last season in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against Boston, but mustered a historic comeback to become only the third team in NHL history to overcome a 3-0 series deficit to take a playoff series. With many of the Flyers' current roster having experienced that incredible feat, Philadelphia was confident heading into this elimination contest -- Game 6 against the Buffalo Sabres.

Buffalo paced itself to an early advantage for the second straight game, as Rob Niedermayer notched a goal 2:13 into the first and Thomas Vanek added two more as the Sabres led 3-1 after 20 minutes. But Philadelphia again showed its resilience by battling back to tie the game on Scott Hartnell's first goal of the postseason with 9:17 left in the third. Then, with their playoff lives on the line in overtime, the Flyers broke through on Ville Leino's overtime tapper to secure a 5-4 win -- setting up a pivotal Game 7 in Philadelphia.
