    The ultimate hockey insider shares the lowdown on the personalities, the dressing room banter, the chalktalk, and the sweat-stained passion behind eight of the most famous goals that changed ice hockey forever.

Al Strachan passes on, in the trenchant style of his famous columns, insights into the goals that reveal not only the way the game has changed but also about the gritty soul of hockey that will remains constant.
