Dead Voices
Excerpt

In Hot Stove they'd forget they were teachers, fathers, husbands, compromisers, bullshit artists, or whatever else they normally functioned as, and became soldiers, predators, hunters, warriors - a bunch of old-timers who had seen their glory years long ago and still laced up the skates for the love of the game. Hot Stove was their way of keeping the embers warm after the season, keeping the dressing room spirit alive, shooting the shit - as real shit instead of pious shit - and swapping hockey lore, and cutting their ties to the world of fakery and compromise.
