This will be a series of posts on my replay of the 1969-70 playoffs using Face-Off Hockey. It is being cross posted from the Solitaire Games on Your Tabletop November 2016 GeekList. This entry will be going into the Way-Back Machine {tm} to April of 1970 to conduct a playoff series between the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Black Hawks using Face-Off Hockey.



The NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs of 1970 shared something unique with last year's playoffs that has only happened those two times in the last 50+ years where NO Canadian teams made the playoffs that year. For the Red Wings, even though they had multiple Hall of Famers in Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio, and Frank Mahovlich, there was a pretty rough stretch from 1966-67 to 1982-83 where they only made the playoffs TWICE in 17 years! This year was one of those two years. Too bad they had to face the Chicago Black Hawks with their OWN set of Hall of Famers in Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Tony Esposito. This was the year that Tony "O" had FIFTEEN shutouts. In the real series, the Black Hawks swept the Red Wings by four identical 4-2 scores. Can the Red Wings avoid the sweep in the replay? Can they win the series? Let's find out! It's "Mr. Hockey" Gordie Howe vs. "The Golden Jet" Bobby Hull!



I've already played one game in this series last month (not posted on BGG) and the Black Hawks one Game 1 by a 4-1 score almost the same as their real life 4-2 margin.



In this game, the Hawks waste no time, with Jim Pappin scoring on the first shot on goal in the game for a 1-0 Chicago lead. Pappin would be the goat a few seconds later as he takes a penalty that allows Alex Delvecchio to score a power play goal to tie the score less than a minute after Pappin scored. But Chicago wasn't done and it was Bobby Hull's little brother, Dennis, who scores less than a minute after Delvecchio and it's a 2-1 Chicago lead. After three goals in the first three minutes of the game, things calm down until the second period.



Detroit is on another power play in the second period, looking to tie the score, but instead, it's penalty killer, Gerry Pinder scoring a short handed goal to put the Hawks up 3-1. Bobby Hull makes it 4-1 with a Chicago power play goal. Nick Libett of Detroit makes it 4-2, but Pit Martin gives Chicago a 5-2 lead after two periods and it's game over from there. The Hawks add two more goals in the third including Bobby Hull's second goal of the game with just six seconds to play! Chicago goes up 2-0 in the series with a 7-2 win heading back to Detroit for Game 3.

Back to some hockey history with the playoffs of 1970, the last time besides last season when NO Canadian teams made the playoffs.

This is the third game in the opening series between the Chicago Black Hawks and the Detroit Red Wings, Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita versus Gordie Howe and Frank Mahovlich. In real life, the Black Hawks swept the Red Wings in four straight, all by 4-2 scores. Heading into this third game, the Hawks are already halfway to an identical sweep, winning the first two games in Chicago by 4-1 and 7-2 scores. After giving up 7 goals in Game Two, Detroit goalie Roy Edwards takes a seat on the bench for the acrobatic Roger Crozier as the Red Wings hope to get back in the series on home ice.



SERIES A - Game 3: Chicago at Detroit

If the Red Wings thought they were going to get any respite from the 1st place Black Hawks assault in this series on their home ice, Jim Pappin ended those hopes quickly by setting an NHL record for the fastest Hat Trick in NHL Playoffs history, scoring 3 goals in 91 seconds and the first 1:51 of the game. (Dick Duff of the 1963 Maple Leafs still holds the record for the fastest two goals at the start of a playoffs game by 4 seconds at 1:08 - I looked it up).

Pappin would add a fourth goal in the game just 21 seconds into the second period, marking the third time in three games he has scored a goal in the first minute of a period. The Hawks are up 9-1 in the third period before Detroit gets some garbage time goals from Nick Libett and Frank Mahovlich. What a crazy game. The Red Wings have their backs against the wall now and have given up 20 goals in three games. Who knows which goalie they go with in Game 4. Chicago's top line racks up 14 points in this game. (Pappin - 5 pts, 4G, 1A; Mikita - 5 pts, 1G, 4A; Bobby Hull - 4 pts, 1G, 3A). Although his linemates, Hull and Mikita, ended up in the Hall of Fame, today, Pappin puts himself in the record books for posterity.

Chicago Black Hawks lead Series A 3-0


HOCKEY TRIVIA NOTE: In 1967, Jim Pappin led all playoffs scorers as he wins his second Stanley Cup with the Toronto Maple Leafs. After the Leafs traded him to Chicago, Pappin was so angry at the team and GM Punch Imlach, that he gave away his Stanley Cup ring to his father-in-law. His father-in-law lost the valuable Stanley Cup ring on a Florida beach in the 1970s where it laid buried in the sand for over 30 years until a Florida treasure hunter found it and dug it up. He actually ended up returning the ring to Pappin, who had a greater appreciation for it in later years.
