Premium Retro League Season 2 Bailey Bobble Finals
KingRaph and his NY Rangers will look to defend the PRL title and win the Bailey Bobble in a rematch from Season 1 with the Detroit Red Wings and Icestorm. Both teams had to work with completely rebuilt line-ups as no one returned from their Season 1 teams.
The Rangers were Regular Season Champs again with a mark of 18-1-1. They were led by Retro Goalie Jacques Plante who had one of the all-time best Save % at .766 a 2.49 GAA and 3 shutouts. Offensively, Mats Sundin (58 goals/26 assist), Geoff Sanderson (43/32), and Andy Bathgate (17/38) led the Rangers. Red Kelly was the leading scorer from the Blueline. The Rangers defeated Tex and the Montreal Canadiens in the Semi-Finals 4 games to 1.
Icestorm and the Red Wings fell to fourth in the Regular Season standings (10-6-4) and actually barely snuck into the Bailey Booble Playoffs. Once in though Ice showed his mettle with a 4 game sweep of Aqualizard and his Super-team LA Kings. Ice made big news by bringing Gordie Howe back to the Motor City and along with Vinny Damphousse and Valeri Kamensky, led the Red Wings offensively.
Hopefully Kingraph will video the series and post here later tonight.
