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, March 2nd

Saturday 2nd March 1968
G Tremblay (28) opened the game's scoring in Minnesota to give Montreal a lead less than two minutes into the game; H Richard (13) restored the lead in the first period after Collins (7) had equalised at 8:22. A scoreless second period saw Ferguson and Balon drop the gloves and the final frame brought goals from Redmond (7) and Duff (20) for the Canadiens as they go unbeaten in four, and the Stars added one more goal through Masterson (10) on the powerplay. Minnesota have gone six games without a win and have just two victories since January.

The Flyers and the Rangers are going in opposite directions down the stretch with Philadelphia winless in five, New York tie their longest unbeaten streak at five. Sutherland (21) gave the visitors an early lead at 1:49 before the Rangers took control until the third period; goals from Nevin (22), D Marshall (10) and Ratelle (26) turning the game into a 3-1 advantage for the hosts. Angotti (13) for the Flyers and Nevin (23) again, this time in an empty net, swap tallies in the final period.

Pittsburgh had a 3-0 lead going into the second period, Boivin (6), McDonald (13) and K McCreary (14) getting on the scoreboard, but two goals either side of the second intermission had Oakland in the drivers seat. Hicke (23) scored twice on unassisted breakaways with Cahan (9) and Burns (12) notching up powerplay efforts.The Penguins, who got three assists from Bathgate to take his helper total to thirty-two and points tally to fifty-two, were able to fight back with goals from Speer (2) and Dea (9) to give them a fifth straight victory, their second longest unbeaten run all year after starting the season 2-0-4, and they move up to tie their state rivals for second place in the West.

After a fourth game without losing Chicago are six points back of the last playoff place in the East but Detroit keep a firm hold of the position as they have two games in hand. St Louis took the lead in the middle period through W Rivers (4) but a penalty shot for R Hull (31) tied the game before the break. The Blues went on to lose their sixth in a row after Wharram (23) on the powerplay and Nesterenko (8) in the empty net, both assisted by Marotte, gave the Hawks both points.

Los Angeles' thirtieth loss of the season is their twentieth on the road as the Maple Leafs sweep them aside to move back into second place in the East with their first win in four. Conacher (9) and Walton (30), whose powerplay goal would prove to be the game winner, scored either side of the first intermission. Labossiere (18) pulled one back for the Kings but Ellis (26) and F Mahovlich (23) scored and assisted to seal the result in the third.
