Back of US SNES Box:
    THE PUCK STOPS HERE. Strap on your helmet and cinch up your skates because this is ice hockey, not nice hockey, a fast and furious all-out assault on your senses, where the five hole looks more like a buttonhole, breakaways are met with bone-quaking body checks and the price you pay for passing across the crease is watching the other guys dance to a loud siren and a bright red light

    NEW IN '96 > NEW MOVES AND MORE WAYS TO SCORE Give and go, drop passes, quick stops, fake shots and the Spin-o-Rama. > SMARTER DEFENSES AND TOUGHER GOALIES Stingy goalies and fierce defenders make these opponents tougher to beat. > ALL-NEW SOUND EFFECTS AND MUSIC Chanting crowds, public address announcers and the rocking anthem "Get Ready for This." > FIVE MINUTE MAJOR PENALTIES > ELABORATE ON-ICE STANLEY CUP CEREMONY Winners of Lord Stanley's Cup receive red carpet treatment.

    LAY DOWN ON "D" Hit the ice and take one for the team.

    LIGHTNING FAST ONE-TIME PASSING Work it around the point on the power play.

    THE STANLEY CUP CEREMONY You can check out the champs' photo, but you have to win the Cup to see the ceremony.
