    Hi. sometimes are here on forum the articles from Google News archive mentioned .

    Is there any good resource in regarding old game box scores ? and also with lineups.
    Especially seasons 1987/1988, 1988/1989, 1989/1990, 1991/1992.

    Hockey-reference.com has lineups and individual stats for every game from 1987-88 to present, though they're not in a game summary format. Take this game for example: http://www.hockey-reference.com/boxscores/198711210PHI.html. Gives you all the stats, but doesn't tell you when the goals were scored.

    You can find a lot of stuff on Google News. It's easiest to go to their archive search here; though their selection is incomplete and it can be tedious trying to track down what you need.

    Check your local library, as their website will probably offer online access to the archives of a major newspaper (some libraries are better than others for this).

    The seasons you're asking about will probably end up on the Hockey Summary Project eventually.
