Films From off the Crossbar

Films from off the crossbar, Hockey is one of the fastest games on ice, with Mighty Ducks. Young Blooded Chimpanzee, teams that inspire & gonnes dropping gloves. Most make a joke of the game or are just chessy. There really hasn't been a great hockey movie, like the many baseball has. Even with hockey’s long history with a lot of crazy stories, or just how mental & physically tough you have to be just to play the game. Rob Zombie was rumored to have pitched a film about the Broad Street Bullies, the Philadelphia Flyers from 1974 to 1976 maybe the most hard core hockey team of all time with 2 Stanley Cup Championships to show. I’m still waiting to watch that overtime goal, where the puck bounces off the crossbar and not some penalty shoot.
