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 #4

Saturday 11th May 1968
Stanley Cup Finals Game #4
Montreal Canadiens @ Philadelphia Flyers

With neither team winning a game four in the playoffs something had to give. Worsley returned in goal for Montreal and his team should have had a first period lead when Backstrom was hauled down shorthanded leaving the referee no choice but to give him a penalty shot. Parent, starting his sixth straight game, was able to deny that opportunity and the other eleven shots Montreal put on him through the opening twenty minutes.

At the other end, Worsley faced just nineteen shots throughout the game (3-9-7) as the teams only generated a combined five scoring chances with the Flyers edging the stat 3-2. After H Richard (3) scored his third goal in two games it was Philadelphia who started to look the more dangerous, out-shooting the Habs nine to eight in the middle period, earning their game-tying goal when Zeidel (1) finished off a slick passing move.

The momentum remained with the hosts in the third frame and, after a very disciplined match, scored the game-winning goal ten minutes from time when Hoekstra (6) grabbed his second of the Finals on Sutherland's second helper of the game.
