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 - NHL 1967/68 Playoff SFs, April 20th 1968

Saturday 20th April 1968
East Division
Toronto Maple Leafs @ Montreal Canadiens Game #1
The all-Canadian battle for the right to move on into the Stanley Cup Finals began in Montreal where the Toronto Maple Leafs got on the board first thanks to F Mahovlich (3), but, despite their 13-5 shot advantage, had to settle for a 1-1 scoreline after the first period when Cournoyer (4) scored in the final minute.

There were no penalties at all in the game and a defensive middle frame yielded no more goals but both sides exchanged tallies in the third, but this time Montreal took the lead through Lamaire (1) and L Hillmand (1) equalised for the Leafs. The supporting cast dictated the result right to the end when Harper (1) was the overtime hero to push Montreal into an early series lead.
