Hockey glory for Canada once again! The 2004 World Cup of Hockey proved once again that, while other nations have had their day, on-ice supremacy begins and ends with the Great White North. This DVD celebrates Canada's amazing undefeated performance in the 8-team tournament that captivated the hockey world in September 2004, when they reigned supreme over Finland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, USA, Russia, Sweden, and Germany.
Disc 1 features "It's Our Game", a 60-minute behind-the-scenes documentary that traces Wayne Gretzky's Team Canada 2004 progress from player selection months before the tournament, through training camp, pre-tournament exhibition games, round-robin play, and the medal round capped off by Canada's victory lap around the ice with Frank Gehry's new World Cup trophy. Included on this disc as extras are special CBC features that aired during the tournament on Team Canada players Mario Lemieux, Dany Heatley, Shane Doan, Martin St. Louis, and Brad Richards.
Disc 2 features the complete CBC broadcast (minus commercials and intermissions), in widescreen format, of the final game, Canada's 3-2 victory over Finland on September 14, 2004. Catch all the action in this amazing game, including Martin Brodeur's heroics in net, Mario Lemieux's amazing assist on Joe Sakic's early goal, Tuomo Ruutu's miraculous individual effort on his second-period game-tying goal, and Shane Doan's glorious third-period game-winner past the outstretched glove of Miikka Kiprusoff to give Canada the trophy. Re-live the speed, passion, and excitement exactly as it happened!
This remarkable DVD set is perfect for anyone who enjoyed the 2004 World Cup, and is a must-have addition to your hockey DVD collection!
