Best of the Original SixBook - 2004
For many fans, the "Original Six" era - that of the Toronto, Montreal, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, and New York teams in their heyday - represents hockey's high point. Veteran hockey historian Brian McFarlane covers every inch of this wild territory. Best of the Original Six includes profiles of superstars like Gordie Howe and his flashing elbows, unforgettable moments like Johnny Bower returning to the ice just minutes after a brutal face-bashing, the classic play-off games, petty feuds and dramatic wins, and the intense and often violent rivalries that made the games a white-knuckle ride.
