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 22nd 1968

Monday 22nd April 1968
West Division
Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers Game #2
The Battle of Pennsylvania continued with Pittsburgh jumping out to a 2-0 lead 3:49 into game two. Price (1) and Dea (3) putting the Pens up before Van Impe of the Flyers drew Price into a fight, swinging momentum towards Philadelphia.

And swing it did with the hosts tied at 2-2 before the end of the period thanks to goals from Hannigan (2) on the breakaway and Rochefort (4). They took over the lead in the middle frame when Sutherland (5) scored the period's only goal, and then Sutherland (6) was on hand again in the third to make it 4-2.

A powerplay goal from Bathgate (1) brought Pittsburgh back within one with over eight minutes still to play, but Kennedy (4) wrapped it up four minutes from time to put the Flyers up in the series 2-0.
