A young boy rediscovers the joy of hockey through Sidney Crosby's famous gold medal goal.

Tyler's life has always been about hockey: hockey after school, hockey on weekends, hockey on holidays... hockey, hockey, hockey. So his parents are surprised and disappointed when Tyler abandons the game he loved so much.

But in 2010 the Winter Olympics come to Vancouver. The country is desperate to win a gold medal in hockey. "Sid the Kid" Crosby is leading the men's team, and all of Canada is counting on him to help win the first gold in men's hockey on home soil.

Tyler's dad gets tickets to the gold-medal game, and Tyler can barely contain himself while he watches the nail-biting final between Canada and the United States. Of course, Crosby scores the "golden goal" in one of the most exciting gold-medal games ever!

Seeing the joy Sidney Crosby has for the game, Tyler decides to return to the ice and just take time to enjoy the sport he loves.
