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 21st 1968

Sun 21st April 1968
West Division
Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers Game #1
Pittsburgh come into this round after a massive ten day break but they were able to keep pace with the Flyers who come straight in on the back of their seven game series against the LA Kings, even going so far as to start out with a 13-9 shot advantage through the first period. Stratton (4) tied the game up twice for the Penguins as he continues to score all of his goals on the powerplay, ultimately sending the game to overtime.

Philadelphia's first lead came courtesy of Hoekstra (3) and, after that was advantage was wipde out 2:43 later, went up 2-1 through Selby (2) early in the second period. Both teams held off a little in the third, especially after Pittsburgh got level again at 12:17, but the sides were all out for a win in OT as they charged back-and-forth, exchanging shots.

In the end Angotti (3) beat Binkley in his net while Parent, who was controversially made the starting netminder for Philadelphia after Favell led them back against the Kings, was solid.
