Hockey rules in Branko Stimac''s new hometown, where its star
players get the royal treatment. Any other sport -- like soccer,
where Branko excels -- is considered second-rate. This means the
sacrifices Branko''s Croatian immigrant father made so he can play
in Canada go unnoticed, as does Branko''s stellar goalkeeping.
When Branko makes it onto the Edmonton Select team as the
second-string keeper, he keeps the accomplishment to himself, sure
that no one in his home town will care. But then a video of one of
his spectacular saves gets posted on a sports blog and goes viral.
Suddenly Branko has more attention than he dreamed of.
