About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

DICE Hockey - NHL 1962-63 Playoffs March 31st

Sunday March 31st 1963
Detroit Red Wings lead best-of-seven series 3-0

1st 2nd 3rd T
(2) MON 1 0 0 1
(4) DET 0 1 1 2

Montreal came into the playoffs nine games without a loss with eight wins in that time, five in a row to end the season and they are now staring down a possible sweep against the fourth placed team despite opening the scoring in all three games. This time the Canadiens did not need their penalty killing units to step up as Montreal stayed out of the box entirely. Their powerplay however had six opportunities throughout the match, four of them coming when the score was 1-0.

Detroit were unable to gain much momentum with all the infractions they were called for, and Montreal finally found a way to silence their first line, but Parker MacDonald still managed to score in his third straight playoff game to tie the game at 1-1. And as is often the case in close postseason contests there was an unlikely hero in this game. Andre Pronovost managed to score just five times after his trade from Boston but his game-winner tonight was worth all that and more. Montreal had a late powerplay with the goalie pulled, including thirty seconds of 5-on-3, but Terry Sawchuk kept them at bay.
