Show synopsis The league's expansion meant new American cities contended for the Stanley Cup, with Philadelphia's "Broad Street Bullies" winning twice. Superstars like Darryl Sittler now shared NHL ice with the first of a rising tide of foreign-born players such as Borje Salming. The contest for international hockey supremacy came to the fore, as teams from Canada and the Soviet Union met in 1972's Summit Series. The World Hockey Association came and went, introducing major league hockey to even more North Americans. Harold Barkley and Dennis Miles recorded for posterity the greatest moments of hockey in the seventies. To their historic color photographs, seasoned hockey writer Mike Leonetti adds intriguing, fact-filled captions, comments and quotations. This book is a rich source for dedicated hockey fans as well as newcomers to the game.
