Game 1: Regina doesn't disappoint at home. An early lead sprung by Johnny Buyck and Pierre Turgeon, and strong goaltending from Tony O is the story of this one. Mark Messier slams home a rebound and Alf Smith scores late. Regina takes Game 1 by a score of 3-1. REG 1-0
Game 2: The Monsters rebound in game two. Ray Bourque patrols the power play, and scores a goal in the second. Vladislav Tretiak puts on a clinic at the other end and steals the show. King Clancy starts getting under Norm Ullman's skin causing him to draw penalties out of frustration. But the PK and Tretiak turn everything aside. 1-0 Monsters, Series tied at 1.
Game 3: All Monsters at home, Bathgate and Ullman score early, but so does Bucyk. Messier ties the game in the second and Clancy adds a goal later on. The Monsters PP tightens in the third, and Bourque ties the game and we're going to overtime. Selanne ends it halfway through the first OT on a breakaway. 4-3 final. REG 2-1
Game 4: Monsters defense is impenetrable, Bourque and Tretiak play shut down, and Alf Smith scores in the first. Ullman and Laprade add second period goals, and Hap Day responds for the Pats. Bourque adds an empty netter and Tretiak stops 35 shots. 4-1 Monsters. TIED 2-2
Game 5: Pats return home with a bang as Messier and Bucyk add early markers. Clancy demolishes any Monster who crosses the blueline. Bathgate is able to score in the third. But it isn't enough. Pats look to take it all in Game 6. 2-1 Pats. 3-2 REG
Game 6: A physical affair, scoreless after 40 due to flawless goaltending and defense. Bourque finds the twine in the third. Tommy Dunderdale is sent off for cross-checking with three to go, and Bucyk finds the back of the net on the ensuing power play. We're headed to OT, lots of saves in the first, but Selanne and Messier are on a 2-on-1 with Bourque, and Messier's slick pass to Teemu is too much for Bourque and Tretiak, he slides it pass and the Pats will compete for the Milt Dunnell Cup! REG 4-2

That's fair. Regina definately had more play-off pedegree than the Monsters. I'm very happy with how well my team did this year, and there's no shame in losing a relatively close series to a very strong Regina team. Good luck in the finals seventies.
