This short 1964 documentary depicts the national sport of French Canadians: hockey. Seen "from the inside" this seemingly simple game turns out to be not so simple.

    @sixam --> The Chicago Blackhawks goaltender is Denis DeJordy who only played 5 games for them in 1962-63 (the year the film was shot). He was called up from the Buffalo Bisons of the American Hockey League to replace the injured Glenn Hall. I suspect he kept the Buffalo Bisons’ red trunks for the 5 games. This happened often when goaltenders were called up or traded to another team mid-season.
