The Hanson Brothers are back, and who better to whip a ragtag youth team into shape for the upcoming championships than the most unpredictable trio ever to strap on skates? Time is running short before the big game, but perhaps if the Hanson Brothers can teach their young protégés the true value of a solid check, these inexperienced underdogs can use brutality to their advantage and finally score a winning goal.

So much better than the original, but that isn't saying much
I missed seeing #2, but I have seen the original, and this one.
Many scenes from this one are taken directly from the original, but this time it's a kids team, and while there are some dirty plays, the tone is on playing clean, being good at the actual sport.
What is also refreshing about this one is the almost complete lack of homophobia that saturated the first film. That one was one continuing f@g joke from beginning to end, which would have been humiliating for a young gay hockey fan to have to sit through in a crowded cinema. But times have changed, and that crap is out. It turns out that you can save the town without compulsively insulting and degrading a whole group of people who live in it.
Unfortunately, as with most films featuring the big Corus logo at the end of the credits, it's still a pretty stupid plot, with pretty stupid gags. So it only gets a 6/10 from me.
