Here are a few things to learn about hockey.
1) There is no need to put the word ice before hockey. It is almost as silly as putting the word foot before orienteering.
2) The Red Army was indeed a great hockey team. A series between Canada and USSR in 1972 was considered by many as the best hockey ever.
3) One of the best games ever played was in Hamilton in 1987 (I was at the game). Canada won 6-5 with only 90 seconds left in the game.
4) Talk to any Swede that likes hockey and they will tell you this is the best goal of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaneYHFXB5c
5) Another great Olympic hockey moment. American hockey fans believe in miracles when US beats USSR in 1980 Olympics. The movie is worth watching.
6) And a modern era classic at the 2010 Olympics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDO5WdO_RoE
7) Gretzky is the best player of all time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_cq26AZerA
8) King Henrik is the best Swedish goalie of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8d4RFhXXSk
9) Most of the best hockey players speak french! (but are from Quebec)
10) ...and finally if you have the time this is REALLY worth watching (10 minutes). It shows how hockey is a large part of Canadian culture (and it too is in french)
