Excellent text on what is really happening in an ice hockey game! This is an excellent text on what is really happening in an ice hockey game. I have watched British hockey for years and I've read a few books about hockey. They talked about the systems, the drills, etc. but I felt I still wanted a book that explained what was actually going on. This one does it!
