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 3rd

Sunday 3rd March 1968
A severe thrashing in Boston hands St Louis their seventh loss in a row as they go 1-8-1 in their last ten with their lone goal coming from B McCreary (21) as the final period's only goal. The Bruins, winning back-to-back games and returning to second spot in the East, scored seven times without reply through the first two frames with McKenzie (29) scoring twice and Shack (20) taking a hat trick. Bucyk's (34) goal came after a pair of assists; Esposito (27) the other goalscorer that helped chase Hall from his net for the Blues after allowing seven goals on forty shots in forty minutes.

After jumping out to a 2-0 lead through Howe (35) and Delvecchio (17), the Detroit Red Wings end up suffering defeat and have just two wins in their last seven. Cournoyer (28) got the Canadiens on the board before the first intermission, going on to assist on goals by Backstrom (17) and Duff (21) to turn the game around. The latter of these also had two helpers with Lamaire (17) nabbing an empty netter to round out his own mutli point night. Montreal remain four points clear of the B's with a game in hand as they go unbeaten in five straight with three straight victories.

In addition to being six points behind the Wings, Chicago have two wins in nine games and are just one point up on New York as the Rangers fall behind to a Mikita (36) and turn it into a 3-1 lead. Nevin (24), Ratelle (27) and Gilbert (25) had the Hawks on the ropes, but R Hull (32) pulled one back in the third period. Kurtenbach (8) sealed the win to give New York a season high six games without defeat, going 3-0-3.

Oakland have a single win in nine games after firing just twelve shots on Flyers' netminder Parent to earn him an easy second shutout this year. LaForge (5) scored at 10:33 of the first period on the powerplay and would later assist to round out his excellent performance. W Hicks (4), Angotti (14) and Hoekstra (15) scored the bonus goals in New York as their home Spectrum Arena was damaged in a recent storm causing Philadelphia to play out their remaining home games in other venues. The change of scene may help with the Flyers picking up their first win in seven games, third in thirteen, and are one point behind the St Louis Blues at the top of the West.
