Hockey's Greatest Moments
Celebrating the Best in HockeyBook - 2004
A nostalgic retrospective of hockey through words and pictures. Hockey is to Canada as Soccer is to England: played, enjoyed and celebrated. Its players are worshipped by legions, its statistics studied and compared, its great moments remembered and revered. Hockey is a fact of life, central to this nations very being. In Hockeys Greatest Moments, Toronto Sun sportswriter Lance Hornby sheds new light on the way hockey is celebrated. Quotes from hockey luminaries from past decades define great moments in the game and each evokes a memory that is played out in the minds of hockey fans everywhere; enjoyed and savored like a good cigar. Henderson has scored for Canada! (Foster Hewitt, Sept. 28, 1972 in Game 8 of the Canada - Russia series) Do you believe in miracles? (Al Michaels, Jan. 17, 1980, USA upsets Russia for the gold medal at Lake Placid) They never let me beat them and they sure as hell werent going to let the other team win. (Punch Imlach, May 2, 1967, as the underdog Leafs win the Cup) Events are culled from famous NHL games, as well as international matches, and will include the World Cup/Canada Cup as it is again played in 2004. Hockeys Greatest Moments is an outstanding collection of memories giving fans a chance to relive some of the greatest wins, plays, snapshots and soundbites from our favourite national pasttime.
