In honor of last Friday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Kings and Montreal Canadiens (aka a rematch of the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals), Neil Everett and company dipped into the archives, yielding some assistance from EA Sports in sprinkling just enough of a retro NHL ’94 touch on the highlights to make us feel all nostalgic and whatnot.

The faceoff picture-in-picture, the thump and subsequent cheers & jeers of a mid-ice check, the stars beneath human-controlled players, and even the ol’ familiar goal siren were all accounted for over the course of the highlight.

From the looks of it, all that was missing was a few automatic wrap-around goals and a digital rendition of “Brass Bonanza”.
