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 #5

Monday 13th May 1968
Stanley Cup Finals Game #5
Philadelphia Flyers @ Montreal Canadiens

As in the previous game neither side has won a game five during the playoffs, and not for the first time in the series the Montreal Canadiens have the upper hand in the first period and this time they manage to take full advantage with a 3-1 lead after twenty minutes. Cournoyer (7) scored his first of the SCF before Rochefort (11) scored his fourth of the series 2:25 later. The Habs' lead was restored when Beliveau (11) scored his first goal since game two, and then Rousseau (6) finished Beliveau's dandy move on the powerplay.

Rousseau (7) did it again on the man advantage early in the second period for 4-1 and the Canadiens were on their way to their first game five victory this season. The Flyers were offensively limited for the second game running, but this time Worsley was big in goal for Montreal, condemning Philadelphia to a third game five defeat in the playoffs.
