The 2018 NHL Gaming World Championship – Episode 2


Today’s the big day. We’re heading into the studio with the players. It’s time to start the Canadian regional finals. Let’s watch as we find out which two players will be representing Canada at the world finals in Las Vegas and which one will win $5000 as the Canadian champion. And with our tournament underway, our first set of players have started to drop out of the action. His goalie just made two really great stops on me so it just didn’t go well and I lost five nothing. I just didn’t have my best day and that costed me. The game I won, I played good D and then the two games I lost, I just had no idea. I just was getting combed. I was lost out there. Coming in I knew he was easily the best defender like in the game. He just shut down my offence there; I had to create against him. I lost the game. I won against Sitful and then this game against Regs I lost it. Hard game. He’s just a goal scorer. Should have played better. Took a lot of penalties. As we narrow the field, Yung Gren, Regs and Fool battle it out. He got the first goal. He came back to make it 2-1. He got a couple of bounces and I just couldn’t recover from it. It has been a hard fought tournament and now it all comes down to the final two players, Fool and Yung Gren. Miller has the puck, he scores! Here’s Fool- Fool with the snipe on the breakaway! We said he needed a comeback and he did it. Dumoulin trying to find a lane- Looking for a pass; Hagelin scores! A cross crease goal and we are finding Yung Gren down. Here’s a breakaway attempt- and a save by Matt Murray. Looking for a pass to Kucherov, oh! Oh redirected and he scores! He has the puck, behind the goal line, he’ll make a pass and just like that, we are tied. And he scores! Takes the lead again. Guentzel scores! Fool with an insurance marker. Kessel scores! I honestly didn’t believe I could do it. I knew the opponent that I was playing and also to my last round the opponent almost came back. Kind of played in my mind but I tried to remain focused and I know the score was 3-3 and there as four minutes left, I still could- there was a possibility I could do it. When I got the fourth goal I started gaining more confidence. I got the fifth one, slightly in my head, I thought it was over. Then when I got the sixth one that like I really realized that I actually did it. I actually pulled off something that I didn’t think I could do. To all the mountains that I had to climb to get through to this point, I’m super proud of myself and I thank my dad for giving me the possibility to practice and embrace my EA Sports life. Everybody thinks it’s just a computer game but it’s real; it felt real. You’re so helpless. You want to help him because he’s your son and I couldn’t do anything and he just brought it home and I’m proud. At the end of the tournament, it’s Fool and Yung Gren who have secured their seats to Las Vegas. Stayed tuned as we learn more about our Canadian champs.
