More details can be found in this thread.

Anyway, I am now in a group that has my first Islander team: the 75-76 edition. And their first game (of a 36 game round robin) is against....guess who? The 91-92 Rangers. And the 3rd period of the game is on Youtube, the link is here

The game is from Madison Square Garden and the Rags are leading 4-3 at the start of the 3rd. No spoilers from me. Scoring for the Isles so far: Denis Potvin (1) from Howatt and Nystrom, Jude Drouin (1) from Hart and Parise, and Denis Potvin (2) again from Trottier and Gillies. The Rags have two goals from Turcotte, the others from Gilhen and Graves. Chico Resch is in goal for the Islanders and Vanbiesbrouck for the Rangers. I will be doing the play-by-play and I have to admit that as a announcer I am probably the biggest homer ever.
This is pretty cool, thanks for doing this. I do wish it was a little more visual though, I would like to see this done with a hockey simulator that shows actual simulated highlights, for example, maybe teams like this created on the NHL Hockey Video Game series.
