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 23rd

Saturday 23rd March 1968
AFter back-to-back wins it's a third straight defeat for the Flyers as Los Angeles takes the win and moves within a point of Philadelphia. Rochefort (21) scored first for the visitors at 3:10 in the opening period, but B Smith (20) had the Kings even 2:11 later. The second frame was scoreless but the third was all LA as R Lemieux (9) and Robinson (12) scored with the man advantage, with Irvine (22) grabbing his goal in between as the Kings have just one loss in five.

There was no separating the Penguins and the North Stars, leaving Minnesota in fourth spot in the West, a point ahead of Pittsburgh who remain on the outside. Despite ending up with their third tie in a row, taking their undefeated streak to five games, Minnesota led twice with M Hall (8) scoring twice, Balon (12) the other goal in Maniago's fiftieth game in goal for the Stars. For the Pens, who are unbeaten in three after going winless in five, go the game to 1-1 just fifteen seconds into the middle frame when McDonald (15) scored unassisted, and then Ubriaco (12) gave Pittsburgh the lead before the intermission; K McCreary (15) was then on hand on the powerplay to make it 3-3.


Another win for for Montreal gives them eleven straight as they sweep aside the Red Wings who suffer their first defeat in nine. G Jarrett (35) for Detroit scored first and then D Roberts (7) nailed his powerplay opportunity to make it 2-2 after the Habs took the lead through Lamaire (22) and Provost (14). After that it was all Montreal with Ferguson (15) scoring a pair with Duff (26) and Backstrom (20) also getting on the board.

With the Flyers defeat St Louis were able to re-stretch their lead in the West to four points, thanks to a four-point effort from J Roberts (19) who scored two on the powerplay with two assists. Berenson (16), B McCreary (24), Melnyk (20) with his game winning goal, and Sabourin (21) who conspire to end the Blues three game skid. For Oakland, who had goals from Ehman (20), Burns (15) and T Hampson (16) to make it a 4-3 game in the final period, have just two wins in eighteen attempts.

After struggling of late the Toronto Maple Leafs bounce back with a vengeance to claim their first win in nine games, taking it out on their opponents of the day from New York. It was only 2-0 after two periods, Walton (31) and F Mahovlich (27) scoring in each frame, but an offensive explosion in the third had the Leafs looking rampant. F Mahovlich (29) went on to complete his hat trick, and Ellis (31) added to his two helpers with a powerplay effort. Keon (14), Pappin (12), and Stanley (5) added to the goal fest. The Rangers suffered a heavy loss to make it five defeats in a row; only Hadfield (2) scored for them to make it 5-1 at the time.
