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 - Stanley Cup Finals Game #5

Thursday April 18th 1963
Toronto Maple Leafs lead best-of-seven series 3-2

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

This was the third one-goal game in these Finals and only the second time that Toronto has outshot the Red Wings through the first five games. The series has also been one where the goaltenders have started out hot with only two goals scored in the first period over the four matches since Detroit jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opening match.

This game was no exception and history continued to repeat itself in the second period as well where the Maple Leafs scored twice; bringing their total for the middle frame to eleven goals out of their fifteen scored all told. Frank Mahovlich scored his fourth of the SCF just a dozen seconds after the interval with Billy Harris scoring his first since game one to double the lead.

Detroit struggled to gain much momentum as wave after wave of Leaf attacks swept over them with only Terry Sawchuk keeping forty-eight shots at bay to keep his team in it. The game was played fairly and the referee kept his whistle clean for long stretches of time until things started to get feisty in the third. Neither side managed to make their numerical advantage on the ice count leading to another tight finish when Andre Pronovost scored his first Stanley Cup goal with seven minutes remaining.

2nd Period
  0:12 TOR Mahovlich (5) Keon, Horton
  8:58 TOR Harris (5) Pulford, Stanley
3rd Period
13:01 DET A. Pronovost (2) MacGregor, Stasiuk

DET 0/1
TOR 0/3

DET Sawchuk 48/50
TOR Bower 29/30
