Rate this:
Few could beat Terry Sawchuk on the ice. To those who played against him in the NHL, he was a legend long before his tragic death. Goalies, as any hockey player will tell you, are a different breed; even among other goalies, Terry Sawchuk stood alone. David Dupuis examines Sawchuk's meteoric rise to the highest echelon of goaltending, but also ventures beyond the dressing rooms and press conferences into his family life and off-ice battles with alcohol and rage. Dupuis closely examines Sawchuk's battles against the Original Six, and tells anecdotes of some of hockey's greatest players. Dupuis also solves the mystery of Sawchuk's death after his off-ice fight with New York Ranger teammate Ron Stewart.
