About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

Player of the Game Hockey - NHL 1967/68, Jan 21st

Sunday 21st January 1968
The previous day's Original Six winning sides, Boston, Chicago, Detroit and Toronto, all played again today starting with the Bruins shellacking of the Blackhawks on home ice. In a game that saw ninety-two shots on goal, fifty-four of them for Boston, it's no surprise that it was a game full of goals. Sadly for Chicago it was a lop-sided result with only Stapleton (7) and Schmaltz (5) getting on the board, the former scoring his team's first shorthanded goal of the year, while Boston had a hat trick from Bucyk (26) and a pair of goals from Hodge (21) to help them take a sixth win in eight games.

The other two Original Six teams met in Detroit where the Red Wings could not stop the in-form Maple Leafs as Toronto took their sixth win in seven and their second win streak of at least four games. P Mahovlich (9) and MacGregor (11) had the Wings up 2-1 but their sixth defeat in the last eight games came when Walton (23), Keon (9) and Conacher (6) added to Pulford's (7) earlier goal.


Minnesota continue to struggle of late with just one win in five as McCord (3) scored their lone goal on the powerplay at home to the Penguins. Pittsburgh had two scores from K McCreary (12), including the powerplay game winner, and an insurance marker from Bathgate (15) for their first win in win and second in eight; all four goals were unassisted.

Los Angeles stay within a point of the Pens by defeating their in-state rival Seals in Oakland with the home side suffering back-to-back losses for the first time in six contests. Hicke (19) had Oakland ahead first but that was soon cancelled out by Gray (6) before an even second period. The Kings then dominated the third with Joyal (13), L MacDonald (14) and Flett (18) giving the visitors their first win in three, a fourth in the last twelve.



Finally St Louis claim top spot in the West with triumph in Philadelphia who go six games without a win, and just one Flyer victory in their last nine games, The hosts led 2-0 through Hoekstra (11) and a Zeidel (2) powerplay goal before the scoreline swung 4-2 in favour of the Blues with Sabourin (17) and Berenson (8) on the powerplay, Melnyk (12) and Arbour (2) doing the damage. Van Impe (2) scored with the man advantage at 17:56 of the third period but St Louis hang on for their second win in three games.
