2. Open Net: A Professional Amateur in the World of Big-Time Hockey by George Plimpton Written back during his participatory journalism days; it's freaking hilarious. Those who have been to a game with me understand why I'm always yelling "STAND UP!" to the goalies after reading this. One of the most informative and funniest books I've ever read.
3.Cold War : The Amazing Canada-Soviet Hockey Series of 1972 by Roy MacSkimming. Great insight into the game and the politics of the era.
I have "The Game" book stored out in my barn somewhere, may dig it up and re-read it. Got it for xmas about 1980
