About the Book

Second only to family, the game of hockey is the tribe to which sports writer Jack Falla passionately belongs. If

Home Ice

let readers in on the role hockey played in his early life,

Open Ice

takes them on a trip beyond his backyard rink to a reunion of the six living members of the five-Cups-in-a-row Montreal Canadiens of 1956-60; his chat with the legendary Alex Delvecchio; the "rink rats" of Boston, fans who played hockey at all hours of the night; and a memorable Bruins game with his grandson. A collection of essays that touches on hockey's greats, like "Rocket" Richard and the mysterious Hobey Baker, as well as the game's enduring nostalgic power, Open Ice is a treat for hockey lovers everywhere.
