One of the best made-for-TV movies ever made!
16 October 2002 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

This movie was true professionalism, and one does not need to be a hockey fan to enjoy it. It ranks right up there with the best of its genre, movies such as "Rich Man, Poor Man", "The Jericho Mile", "Dead Ahead: The Exxon Valdez Disaster", "Heart of Steel" and "The Day After". Kevin Conway gives perhaps the best performance of his career, and Merly Streep lights up the screen with her beauty and grace. If this movie is available on video, give it a shot.
