----[ MODES ]-----------------------------------------------------------------

    [EXHIBITION]
     A one-game battle. You can play with your friends or test your ice hockey
     skills against the CPU.

    [SEASON]
     Select this to play a 82-game season and complete it with best-of-7
     playoff series and post-season awards ceremony.

    [PRACTICE]
     Improve your skills or draw up plays to run. You can also work on your
     penalty shot skills here.

 ____
/___/ GAME MODE OPTIONS--------------------------

Skill Level:      Novice (CPUs skate slow/react slowly
                  Intermediate (CPUs are average)
                  Expert (CPUs are NHL-level)

Period Length:    5/10/20 Minutes (set the length of minutes in each period
                  and there are 3 periods in a game). If the game goes to
                  overtime, it is always an extra 5 minutes period.

Goalies:          Toggle to manual or automatic.

User Records:     Toggle on or off. If you turn it on, your personal NHL 97
                  performance will go on an ongoing record.

Penalties:        Turn penalties on/off or on with no offsides. Having the
                  penalties off will put you in a fast-paced game.

Line Changes:     Turn on/off or automatic. Having it on automatic will have
                  your team change lines automatically before each faceoff in
                  a game. Having it off and your best line will be on the ice
                  for the whole game and never tire.

Rosters:          Default or With Trades. If you have it on With Trades, team
                  rosters will reflect your transactions in the game.

Fighting:         The option to get in some fisticuffs or not.

 ____
/___/ PLAYING THE GAME---------------------------

Select Team:      In Exhibition mode, you can select and choose from the 26
                  NHL teams plus two All-Star teams.

Controller Setup: Move the controller icon under the team you want to play
                  as in the game.
 ____
/___/ SCOREBOARD MENU----------------------------

Instant Replay:   This lets you replay an action and slow it down and focus
                  on a play or specific areas. You might have made the most
                  fantastic of plays and you want to replay this and be in
                  awe of it or you want to see a penalty that you don't agree
                  with.

Edit Lines:       You can edit your team's lines here and give it a new look
                  on the ice. If you have Line Changes toggled OFF, you can
                  only edit your team's top line.

Change Goalies:   You have the option to replace your starting goalie or play
                  with no goalie and put in an extra skater.

Goalie Control:   There is this option at the main menu but it's also on the
                  scoreboard menu. You can play as a goalie manually or let
                  the computer do it.

Timeout:          Each team is allowed to call one timeout per game. It has
                  very little use in a game and all it does is restore the
                  energy levels of skaters on both teams and that's only
                  if Line Changes is toggled ON.

Team Rosters:     Not much to do here but to view and browse the ratings of
                  the players and goalies.

Coaching:         A neat little feature here. You can assign different
                  strategies to different lines to affect the style of
                  gameplay.

Score Summary:    Take a gander at who scored and who assisted on the goal
                  and the time of the goal and if it was on full strength,
                  power play or shorthanded.

Penalties:        To view the penalties that were called during the game.

Record Holders:   At the main menu, if you have User Records turned ON, you
                  can put in a little challenge here and break the All Time
                  Records.

Other Scores:     This is in SEASON MODE and during the season you can view
                  the score of the other contests.

                                     Season
==============================================================================

OFFSIDE
    A play is offside when an offensive skater who is not in possession of
    the puck precedes the puck across the blue line into the Attack zone.

    This violation commonly occurs when 1) A pass is completed to a player
    "camping" in the Attack zone, or 2) The puck handler skates into the
    zone before his teammates have cleared out.

    If you're in danger of committing an Offside violation, the ref appears
    on the screen with a hand raised as a warning. Wait for your teammates to
    circle out of the Attack zone, then move the puck across.

   *Two-line pass offside violations are not called in this game.

ICING
    An Icing violation is called when an attacking player on his team's side
    of the center line sends the puck across the opposing team's goal line,
    but not in the net, and a defensive skater is the first to touch the puck.

    Icing is not called when 1) The opposing team's netminder is the first
    player to touch the puck, 2) Any attacking skater is the first player to
    reach the puck, or 3) The attacking team is skating short-handed due to a
    penalty killing situation.

BREAKAWAY
    A breakaway is recognized when the offensive player with the puck skates
    past the defenders on the Attack zone creating a one-on-one situation with
    the opposing goalie.

    A single tone sounds to let you know when a breakaway occurs. A last ditch
    effort by the defense to "take down" the puck handler from behind results
    in a penalty shot.

PENALTIES

   -Charging (2 minutes)
     Applying a body check after you have taken more than two deliberate
     strides toward your opponent.

   -Cross Check (2 minutes)
     Hitting your opponent with both hands on your stick and no part of
     the stick on the ice.

   -Fighting (5 minutes)
     A fight is initiated the moment you drop your gloves.

   -High Sticking (2 minutes)
     Carrying your stick above shoulder level when skating toward an
     opponent.

   -Holding (2 minutes)
     Using your hands to grab either your opponent or his stick.

   -Hooking (2 minutes)
     Using the blade of your stick to restrain an opponent.

   -Interference (2 minutes)
     Any contact with your opponent's goalie while he is in possession of
     the puck and within the crease.

   -Roughing (2 minutes)
     A particularly ruthless Charging infraction.

   -Slashing (2 minutes)
     Using your stick to hit, or attempt to ht, an opposing player.

   -Tripping (2 minutes)
     Toppling tour opponent by means of either your stick, knee, foot, arm,
     hand, or elbow.
