When Mystery, Alaska's (amateur) hockey team accepts a challenge to play the New York Rangers, the entire population must put their petty differences aside, and band together, as their small town becomes the centre of a nationally televised event.Written by
Dates-wise, the movie's premise makes no sense. The NHL regular season runs from October through April. The movie begins in the second week of December; shortly after, the game is scheduled for 32 days later. Unless not specifically stated, one would think the game is played in January. NHL players would not be traveling to Alaska for a scrimmage game during the middle of the season. See more »

There are now over 100 reviews of this movie. And I guess my little blog won't matter much. But I love this movie. Anyone who is into hockey will surely fall in love with this movie.
Watch out for some of the language if you're going to have younger kids watching.
The first time I saw this I was maybe 13 or 14 and I remember my buddy (our goalie no less) telling me to relax. I guess I had my fists clinched all during the game hoping the Rangers would lose.
Sorry if I sound biased. But I AM! Anything smelling of hockey grabs my interest. (Pun intended. As anyone who has been in a locker room knows that hockey players REEK) But, seriously, this movie was a lot better than most hockey movies. I actually like this movie more than "Miracle" which is another of my favourites.
So my thoughts are, if you like hockey even a little bit you better check this one out if you haven't already.
