Most Heartbreaking Loss

Recommended Posts

I was playing against the CPU today, and got a 3-0 lead in the first. I was quite excited, and wanted to finish the game to see how many goals I could get. About 30 seconds into the seconds, my goalie makes a save, and when I begin the breakout, he drop passes it into his own net. I brushed it off, but on the next play, Teemu Selanne with his 6/6 skating ability, comes at the net and snipes it on my frozen manual goalie. Like the last goal, I treat it as a small bump in the road, and end up scoring 3 more on pass shots and one timers.

I take 2'penakties almost back to back midway through the third, and both result in power play goals. So now it's 6-4, with about 1:30 left. I rush up, and the puck is saved by Essensa. He passes it, straight ahead, through Barasso's legs and makes it a one goal game. I maintain control of the puck, but with 10 seconds left, I lose it a pond the CPU runs the goalie and puts it in. We go to OT, and the invisible wall behind the goalie keeps out a Jagr to Lemuiex one timer. I end up giving up the softest goal ever, with it bouncing in between my goalie and the post twice.

Because of this, I wanted to ask you guys, what was your worst/most heartbreaking loss?

that read like a Genesis nightmare. is that version is so moody and momentum-based that you can lose to the AI while full-on trying?

Just scored 5 straight goals in 3rd period today to tie hazmat looking for my first dynasty or league win, and watched it fade away!! Great game though!

I'm also pretty bad at the game, but not bad enough to lose like that. It just seemed so weird.

2012 league...game 4 of playoffs (I'm down 0-3 to IceStorm's Maple Leafs). I'm up 5-2 with less than 1:30 to go. I give up 4 goals to lose 6-5 in regulation. It was a crushing defeat, especially getting swept. I wasn't sure if I would keep playing '94 after that one.

You can watch that carnage here! https://youtu.be/YMdEm3w_UYk?t=527

Not a long time for me!! Spring Classic 15,conf' semi-finals,game 3. I play Skip and his Nordiques against my Bruins.

Skip punish me during 2 periods to take a 7-2 lead!!! I score my 3rd goal with 1mn left in 2nd and then i make an incredible come- back in 3rd to tie the game with only 10s left!! OT!!! I am pretty happy to be still in the game!! And for what??? Nothing!!! Skip crucify me with a Sakic one-timer after only 8s in OT!!! All that for that i said to myself!!! Hard to be back in the serie in my head after a loss like that!!!

But that was an incredible game! The best of the serie and maybe the best i ever played!!! And against a great bud too!!!

GDL 09 vs BoKnowsNHL94 - Game 7

GDL X vs Icestorm - Game 7

I lose both games 6-5 after sloppy play in which my opponent piles on goals and then a late push by myself comes up short. When I look at it now, I definitely would have won the title had I won these games.

In GDL 09 I would have played TomKabs (I had beaten him exactly a week earlier) and swos before taking on Carse in the final.

In GDL X I would have beat swos in the final.

BoKnowsNHL94 (1) vs Plabax (8)

----------------------------------------------

I definitely outplayed Bo in this series. Late in Game 5 (series tied 2-2) I had the lead and with my goalie I willingly decided to pass it in Bo's direction and I got scored on. I don't know why I did it but I honestly didn't care too much because I really thought I was going to win regardless. I lost that game in OT but bounced back in Game 6 with my most dominating game of the season.

Game 7 was a mess. Bo brought his A-game and I was in a hole early on. I fought back and got back into the game. I'm pretty sure I hit the post on a penalty shot THEN on what was going to be a breakaway my team took a penalty :(

I had a final rush, missed and then just saved the state while we were still in play. We didn't even end up seeing the three stars.

------------------------------

Icestorm NHL94 (1) vs Plabax (3)

I came off a 4-2 series victory against Carse and I knew I was better than swos. The problem was, I wasn't confident in beating Icestorm. I used to think he was the best player in the community (I was very wrong lol :P).

Anyway, games 1 and 2 I got destroyed by Icestorm. My heart wasn't even racing, it just felt like I was going to lose. The problem was, my team of buggers was not good enough on the offensive end to score against Icestorm's great defensive and goalie play.

Game 3 I found a rhythm and came out with the win. Game 4 I lost, but I had the extreme confidence I needed in my ability to force a game 7.

I dominated games 5 and 6 and before game 7, I didn't underestimate my opponent like I did with Bo the year before.

Game 7 starts and early on I give away the puck with my goalie. Icestorm scores on the open net, 1-0 for him. I come back and take the lead 2-1 before Ice ties it up at 2. In the second period, Icestorm scores 3 goals in 5 seconds and all of a sudden I'm down 5-2. Early in the third period I'm able to make it 5-4 and I have all the momentum until I give it away with my goalie yet again, and Icestorm takes advantage. It seems like a backbreaker goal but then I come right back and score to make it 6-5. The rest of the game is all me. Point-blank shots in the crease, one-timers. everything. Ice stops it all and I lose the game. I lost this series more than Ice won it. In the end, I knew swos beat Ice in the finals and he did.

You beat me a week earlier with the 2nd best team in the game, against my crappy old Bure, and it took you 7 games. You would've still lost gdl 9 so suck it

I had the most heartbreaking de sync against Skeletor last night. OT, came back from being down 4-1 to make it 4-4 with 3 minutes left. We de sync, and the game after its 2-2 in second, and my computer dies.
