My Top 5 favorite hockey movies

The sport of hockey takes a back-seat to basketball, football and baseball in the US of A in terms of popularity. So that explains why there aren't that many hockey movies coming out of Hollywood yet alone great ones. Even the latest hockey flick GOON (which prompted the inception of this list) isn't really a US flick. Sure it stars two name American actors (Seann William Scott and Liev Schreiber), but it was directed by a Canadian (Michael Dowse), written by two Canadians (Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg) and was shot in Canada (Manitoba, Canada). With that; I initially wanted to do a TOP 10 of my favorite hockey movies to celebrate GOON's release, but I quickly realized there weren't enough solid ones to do a list that vast. So here are the 5 hockey movies that warm my pucks the most. Game on!

Goon was awesome

I saw Goon last night on HDNET and it was a great movie, alot funnier than I thought it would be.

Really can't wait to see Goon. I saw Miracle in Peabody, MA on opening night and it was one of the best theater experiences I have ever had. I will be checking out Rocket very soon. Didn't know much about it.

Cool list but Slapshot has to be #1. No way does Mystery Alaska top that classic. I haven't seen Goon yet but I will. Man, I miss the real NHL and not this Soccer on Ice the league has evolved in to.

Safe things. Nice things. Don't ever disagree with someone, lest you be smote by the righteous fist of thunder!

PS- Good comment Joe!
