about

"Bad" Joe Hall and Newsy Lalonde were bitter enemies on the ice. Crowds were drawn as these two roughneck hockey players battled it out for victory. But the game changed during WWI, when many of Canada's hockey players left the game to become soldiers and fight for their country. Rivals Joe and Newsy were then forced to play side by side as teammates. And in 1919, just when the fighting overseas ended and things were looking up for hockey, the Spanish Influenza quickly spread across North America. The Stanley Cup was put in jeopardy. This is the story of two guys who learned to work together and deal with unexpected challenges of all kinds.
