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

Player of the Game Hockey - 1967/68 Stanley Cup Finals Game #1

Sunday 5th May 1968
Stanley Cup Finals Game #1
Philadelphia Flyers @ Montreal Canadiens

A very slow start for the Canadiens saw them out-shot ten to three after twenty minutes, nineteen to ten after forty, but worse still they fell behind at 8:11 when Sutherland (9) tied Beliveau for the scoring lead in the playoffs. The lead was doubled 1:29 later when Selby (5) beat Worsley in the Montreal net.

It was a surprising 3-0 lead when Dornhoefer (6) and Selby grabbed their second points of the night less than two minutes into the middle frame, but the Habs got a breakthrough at 5:55 of the same period through the powerplay when Redmond (2) scored unassisted.

Montreal turned it on for the third period with twelve shots against five from the Flyers but Parent was strong in goal and turned aside all challenges. This change in momentum came about when Philadelphia lost their discipline but Montreal only went 1-for-6 on the man advantage, dropping the opening game of a series this year while the Flyers are perfect in game ones.
