Stoddart, Toronto, 2001, 1st pr.  ISBN 0-7737-6261-2.  Soft cover, 86 pages.  Unread copy; light curl to cover edges; black & white illustrations.  ‘It is the middle of the 21st century and the discovery of a transcript of an old radio documentary is casting light on the demise of Canada’s golden age of hockey.  As the documentary shows, the beginning of the end happened on September 28, 1972, in the final game of the Summit Series between the Canadian and Russian teams.  Paul Henderson, the heroic scorer of the winning goal in the previous two games, misses a golden opportunity to score, and the play heads back to the Russian end, where Vladimir Shadrin stuffs it into the net.  Russia wins the series!  In this hilarious spoof, that’s when all hell breaks loose.  The team’s plane is not allowed to land in Canada; the suicide rate among NHLers spikes; bruising teams such as the New Westminster Bruins become figure-skating clubs; and hockey heroes like Brad Park and Henderson are forced to play in Russia.’ (from rear wrap)
