Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This documentary captures the heart-stopping excitement and intensity of overtime in the National Hockey League playoffs for the coveted Stanley Cup. Featuring footage of hockey's most thrilling overtime moments in playoff history, the viewer is treated to the heroics of the greatest legends of the game. Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, and Mark Messier skate their way to victory, telling stories in their own words, offering their own insights into hockey's most remarkable moments. Highlights include Messier's hat trick that brought home the Stanley Cup to the Rangers after more than half a century; the Montreal Canadiens unprecedented ten straight overtime victories that propelled them to their 24th championship; and the game-winning overtime goal by "The Great One" that sent the L.A. Kings to their first Stanley Cup appearance. The action is non-stop in this outstanding video.
