A far more satisfying sequel than the second one...
As the second installment of the series was a bit disappointing despite it was set during an international tournament, this one brings us back to the roots, in Quebec City. This time, no championships, but survival and struggling is the main subject...

One year after the victory at the World Cup, Pierre Lambert (Carl Marotte, again great in this role) has better days with the Quebec National of the NHL. After a great tribute from his teammates, he's about to marry his girlfriend Patricia (Isabelle Miquelon), despite that his team is trying to win the playoffs against the Philadelphia Flyers. But they lost. And for worst, his wedding is postponed due to a tragedy which affects his fiancée...

But a bigger challenge awaits the whole team as many scandals affect the team: a player attacks an opposing team's fan and threatens to sue, some rookie players had a wild night with some minor girls and face prison, the defected Soviet player wants to go back to Russia after a betrayal and the worst: the team's owner gambles the profits and capitals over gaming, putting the team under NHL ownership. Just happens that a wealthy business woman (Alexandra Stewart) wants, for bigger market share, to buy the team (in possible cahoots with the NHL commissionner !) and move it to Hamilton. The former General Manager, Gilles Guilbeault (Michel Forget) and some associates will try to gather the money to keep the team in Quebec. In the meanwhile, even the team tries a fire sale by selling Pierre Lambert to the Toronto Maple Leafs (but failed...)...

At least, even if the team does not win a Stanley Cup, the best is that the story is better, two love triangles are involved here and at least a couple of twists keep the interest until the end. Pop singer Roch Voisine is featured here as a hockey player who has similarities to actual player Luc Robitaille...

Like a crucial hockey game which there is a winner at the end of a sudden death period...

(Anecdote: Even if the National remained in Quebec, the actual team which inspired these, the Quebec Nordiques, moved several years later to Colorado... Sign of Times ahead ?)
