Summary

A vivid visual record of a decade of great hockeyFilled with stunning photos, Best of the Decade celebrates the highlights of the NHL's first ten years of the new millennium. During these years, the NHL itself expanded-both locally and globally. The millennium began with the birth of two new teams: the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Minnesota Wild. Meanwhile, the league extended its influence abroad, hosting a series of hugely successful games in London, Prague, Stockholm, and Helsinki. In 2003 the Heritage Classic was born-the first outdoor game in NHL history-which continues to draw huge crowds in such storied locations as Chicago's Wrigley Field and Boston's Fenway Park.Tripped up by a mid-decade lockout, the NHL had to cancel the 20 04 -05 season. But the league came bouncing back with a return to basics: exciting young players, explosive team rivalries, and exhilarating games-all those elements that keep hockey fans on the edge of their seats.Take a fond look back at a decade of professional hockey-with all the action, drama, and excitement you'd expect from the Reflections series.
