A professional hockey player plays in hundreds of games during his career but there is always one game that stands out from the rest -- the game he'll never forget. For Dave Schultz it was beating the Soviet Union after the Central Red Army had embarrassed the NHL's best teams in 1976. Maurice "Rocket" Richard recalls the Leafs-Canadiens game where he scored five goals in a playoff game, single-handedly winning the game. Frank Mahovlich remembers scoring his 500th goal after falling -- not the most beautiful way to reach this career milestone.

But it's not just the incredible victories, career milestones or amazing goals that stand out. Ted Lindsay recalls playing for the Detroit Red Wings while under a death threat. And for Denis Potvin, it was sleeping in and missing a game during his rookie year, a mistake that could have torpedoed his career before it started. Gordie Howe's most memorable game was the first game he played with his sons. Spanning 70 years of hockey, The Game I'll Never Forget is an unique account of some incredible games and the players who played them.
