Boston Bruins v Vancouver Canucks - Game Five

Video: View Game 5 from NBC star cams and net cam

Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals had its share of drama and excitement as Roberto Luongo saved 31 shots in earning his fourth shutout of the playoffs and helped bring the Canucks to within one win of the Stanley Cup as Vancouver beat Boston 1-0.

While the post game featured some of it’s own drama with Luongo being critical of Boston’s Tim Thomas, the game itself provided enough action for fans of both teams. NBC’s star cams were in full effect for Game 5 which means you can catch the action from the Boston point of view or Vancouver point of view however you might prefer.

If you’re more of a goaltending fan, you had plenty to see throughout and you can get the view from behind both Tim Thomas and Roberto Luongo thanks to net cam.

Video: Bruins and Canucks star cams show off how Vancouver won Game 2

Alex Burrows

After a thrilling Game 2 in the Stanley Cup finals that saw Vancouver win 3-2 in overtime thanks to Alex Burrows game-winning goal, there’s plenty to look at video-wise. For the game, NBC had the star cams in full effect to scope out the action. From the physicality dished out by Zdeno Chara and Milan Lucic to the work around the net done by Mark Recchi and David Krejci you’ll see all of that from the Bruins perspective.

From Vancouver, you’ll get a good look at the whack Kevin Bieksa took at the hands of Rich Peverley as well as Alex Burrows mixing things up with Adam McQuaid and Maxim Lapierre putting a finger in the face of Patrice Bergeron as well as all the highlights you may not have caught during the game.

Video: Star Cam and Net Cam highlights of Capitals-Rangers Game 3

Washington Capitals v New York Rangers - Game Three

(Want a full recap of the game? Click here. Want to pour over the controversial non-goal that closed out the second period? Have at it. This post includes video footage of the game’s five goals, if you missed it or just want to see them again.)

To some, the New York Rangers only have one star: goalie Henrik Lundqvist. Or at least he’s there only star when Marian Gaborik goes into ghost mode, which he’s done for much of this season.

Yet that ignores the great play (and mustache) of Brandon Dubinsky and the hard-working output of the team overall. Sure, the Washington Capitals have mega-star Alex Ovechkin and some orbiting stars in Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom, but the Rangers have some stealthy talent of their own.

For evidence of that, check out Star Cam footage of the Capitals and Rangers below. To check out Lundqvist and potential star goalie of the future Michal Neuvirth, watch the last video that spotlights the best Net Cam moments.

Video: Alex Ovechkin star cam

Pittsburgh Penguins v Washington Capitals

Missed out on what Alex Ovechkin was up to this afternoon during the Capitals 3-0 win over Pittsburgh? Worry no more as NBC’s Star Cam was focused on The Great 8.

Ovechkin was held without a point today, but his activity on the ice was still at a high level creating scoring chances. In 21:21 of ice time, Ovechkin had three shots on goal.

Videos: Star Cam footage from Flyers-Blackhawks Game of the Week

toewsdeerinheadlights

For a game with an unusual start time of 12:30 pm ET (11:30 am at the United Center), NBC’s Game of the Week between the Philadelphia Flyers and Chicago Blackhawks was a pretty spirited affair. It was often closer than the Flyers’ 4-1 win suggests, although Philly definitely played a better overall game. The NBC Star Cams tracked a variety of players from both of these talented squads, as you can see in this post.

Naturally, the Flyers’ Star Cam actually focused on the bruising nature of the team. (If you want to see the skilled side of the coin, check out highlights from their win here.) In the first clip at the bottom of this post, you can watch Chris Pronger, Scott Hartnell and Daniel Carcillo doing some of their best dirty work.

Meanwhile, Chicago’s Star Cam footage revolves around the hard (if mostly fruitless) work of their captain Jonathan Toews, sniper Patrick Sharp, forward Marian Hossa and one heads-up play by underrated two-way center Dave Bolland. You can see that Toews was a little banged up on certain plays, although it doesn’t include footage of Braydon Coburn really giving him a hard time.
