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 20th

Wednesday 20th March 1968
In a scoreless first period Chicago's Mohns answered the bell, fighting Neilson of the Rangers, despite a wide gap in penalty minutes and reputation. That was enough to spark the Hawks as R Hull (37) went on to register three points, two of them goals, with C Maki (6) also scoring and assisting. DeJordy picked up his third shutout of the season while Giacomin in the New York net lost his thirtieth game, eliminating them from the postseason. Chicago can mathematically qualify for the playoffs but need to win out their remaining schedule and hope Detroit lose their final six outings.

Irvine (21) shorthanded for the Kings and Cullen on the powerplay for the North Stars produced the only scoring of the game, 2:39 apart in the second period. Minnesota are unbeaten in four after back-to-back ties, and Los Angeles are on the outside looking in with just one win in five.

F Mahovlich (26) scored the first and last goals in the game at Montreal, but the Leafs continue their slide with just one win in eleven. G Tremblay (31), Duff and Rousseau (14) turned the game right around before the break and, after Ellis (30) brought Toronto back to within one, Ferguson (13) and two goals from Cournoyer (34) sealed the victory for the hosts. Walton and Stanley for the Leafs joined Montreal's Lamaire, T Harris, and Beliveau in picking up two assists. It's ten straight now for the Habs as they clinch the NHL League Champions banner as the top team in the league.

After two shutout periods the Flyers rounded on Oakland with four unanswered goals to give them back-to-back victories for the first time in eighteen games. Oakland, who have just twenty-three shots combined in their last two games, were undone thirty-three seconds into the final frame when Sutherland (26) scored on the powerplay. Angotti (15), Rochefort (20) unassisted, and Blackburn (8) shorthanded helped give Favell his third clean sheet this year as Philadelphia enjoy shutouts in two games running.

After five games without a win Pisstburgh get back-to-back efforts to move them back into a playoff spot. B McCreary (23) gave St Louis the lead as he scored on the powerplay, but the Blues' third loss in five games came courtesy of two goals from Bathgate (23) and the game-winner from Boivin (7) coming forty-seconds after the first intermission.
