Description

Un père montre à son fils, Max, un souvenir de hockey qu'il a conservé exprès pour lui : la carte de Mario Lemieux, lorsqu'il n'était qu'un débutant. Max est déjà fan de Lemieux, mais il veut connaître toute l'histoire depuis le début, quand Mario jouait pour la pire équipe de la LNH. Lui-même fait partie de la pire équipe de sa ligue, ce qui le frustre énormément. Il suit le parcours de son héros pendant la saison 1990-1991 et tire son inspiration des superbes performances de Mario au cours des matchs des séries éliminatoires, notamment l'incroyable but qu'il a marqué contre l'équipe des North Stars du Minnesota dans la finale. Mario devient un véritable champion quand les Penguins de Pittsburgh remportent la Coupe Stanley, et Max comprend que des efforts acharnés peuvent tout changer. Même la pire des situations peut s'améliorer si on y travaille assez fort!

Original title: The Magnificient Mario

A father shows his son, Tyler, a special hockey memento he kept for him - Mario Lemieux's rookie card. Tyler loves Lemieux already, but wants to hear the entire story of how Mario started out on the worst team in the NHL. Tyler is also on the worst team in his league and is very frustrated at losing so often.

He follows his hero through the 1990-91 season and is inspired by watching Mario Lemieux's magnificent performance during the playoffs, especially his fantastic goal against the Minnesota North Stars in the finals. Mario becomes the ultimate winner as the Pittsburgh Penguins win the Stanley Cup while Tyler learns that things can change if you strive to do your best like Mario did for his team. Even when you are in the worst situation possible you can eventually make it the best!
