A great 1980's to1990's NHL time capsule for the true hockey fan.
25 March 2019 | by ilpointsSee all my reviews

This movie was amazing. It captured the feeling of 1990's NHL hockey. The documentary was well put together and reminded you of the political climate of the 80's/90's as well as the extreme physical nature of the NHL at this time period. Red Wings fans should love it. Avalanche fans ought to respect it. NHL fans should never forget it. It was extremely interesting learning the actual stories of how Russian players had to drastically change their lives to leave their home country to play in the NHL. We brought a friend who is a physician in the United States, was born in Russia, and knew very little about hockey. She loved the movie and cheered hard for the Russian players.
