Rate this:
The 1960s was a decade of major transition for the National Hockey League. The league doubled in size as new teams in St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Oakland brought hockey to new fans throughout North America. Aging superstars like Maurice Rocket Richard passed the torch to the next generation of stellar players such as Bobby Orr. Hall of Famers like Johnny Bower, Dave Keon, Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe, Jean Beliveau, Terry Sawchuk, and Glen Hall were at their peak. Bitter rivalries were the order of the day, especially between Canada's two teams, as the Leafs and the Canadiens accounted for nine of the decade's Stanley Cup winners.Like its companion volume, the critically acclaimed The Game We Knew: Hockey in the Fifties, this book is a treasure trove for dedicated hockey fans as well as newcomers to the game. The Game We Knew: Hockey in the Sixties is an inspiring tribute to one of hockey's most turbulent and exciting eras.
