Imagine playing goal during the Stanley Cup playoffs! Imagine playing hockey for Team Canada! Imagine winning!
Daniel like dreaming. If only life were more like his dreams... Daniel plays goal for a junior team, and lately they have been losing.
Then one day the man who drives the ice-cleaning machine invites Daniel to do something special. He invites him to step inside his dream machine... What happens then can only be described as magic!
