NHL Network presents: Game 2 2011 ECQF: Penguins vs. Lightning

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.

The Tampa Bay Lightning skated into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals with the Pittsburgh Penguins hoping to quickly erase the memories of their Game 1 performance. They did just that early and often.

After 20 minutes of play, the Lightning found themselves leading the Penguins 3-0 on goals from Eric Brewer, Vincent Lecavalier and Nate Thompson. Though Craig Adams was able to slip a puck behind Lightning netminder Dwayne Roloson midway through the second period, the Lightning would rely on their special teams to close out the game.

Martin St. Louis and Mattias Ohlund scored power-play and shorthanded goals, respectively and stole home-ice advantage from the Penguins, heading back to Tampa with the series tied, 1-1..
