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 27th

Wednesday 27th March 1968
Minnesota's first win in five games comes in a ten-goal contest in Los Angeles, handing the Kings their first defeat in five. LA were in the hunt throughout, goals from Menard (6), Flett (30), Joyal (27) and B Smith (21), but Connelly (43) ran wild with four goals, including the game winner and an empty netter, with Masterson (13) and P MacDonald (21) adding their tallies to the cause. Cullen, Vasko and Balon all came away with two assists as the North Stars have lost just once in their last seven yet they remain outside of the playoff spots...

...as the Penguins win in Oakland to stay in fourth position in the West. Despite injuries to Hicke and Cahan, the Seals played a strong game and took the lead in period one through Caron (10). Pittsburgh, who are 4-1-1 in their last six, answered in the second frame when K McCreary (16) tied it up, and the third period belonged to the Pens when Bathgate (26) scored unassisted on the powerplay with less than five minutes to go, and Dillabough (4) added one into the empty net late on.

Staying in the West it remains very tight and Philadelphia take their third win in four tries, re-taking second in the division. A penalty shot from Rochefort (22) was the only goal through two periods, but Sutherland (27) doubled the Flyers' lead in the final frame. Crisp (13) had a PP marker to make it 2-1 but St Louis, who lose for the fourth time in five games, cannot come all the way back; Kennedy (12) guaranteeing the win very late.

Laperriere (9) on the powerplay from Beliveau and JC Tremblay at 3:23, and Ellis (32) from Walton and F Mahovlich at 14:42, were the games' only goals in the all-Canadian battle; both coming in the middle period. Montreal continue on their streak and are now fifteen unbeaten, while Toronto are unbeaten in three thanks to the game-tying goal, and earn their fifth tie in eleven games to hold second spot in the East.
