For 'scores' I have NFL, NCAAF, PGA SPRINT but no NHL."scores". I have tried going to Windows reset , un -checking Media and rechecking media to try to get this back, but have not had any luck.
Hockey season starts next week so being a Hockey mad Canadian-----
Your advise would be appreciated. Thanks

Clarification Request
Not sure I understand

I have WMC on my system but have never used it, so I am very rusty.

Are you saying NHL is a channel that is missing in your WMC? If so you may need to "Add a Channel".

I don't know how to do that, but Microsoft has a guide here; Use the Guide in Windows Media Center.

Just scroll down to where it says, "To change settings for the Guide or download the most recent listings". But I see Microsoft has a proviso underneath that where it says "Some TV service providers offer channels that don't contain the necessary information to show up properly in the Guide". I assume that some TV service providers may not offer their channel on WMC.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Mark for your reply.
I checked out my Event Viewer as you suggested and it reads that my sports page was update on September 16, 2011 .
So I guess that's it for me. Appreciate you taking the time to offer assistance.
