A Great Game by Stephen J. Harper
Simon & Schuster - $34.99
The history of professional hockey in Toronto does not begin and end with the Maple Leafs – no matter what members of Leafs Nation may think.

Instead of insight that barely scratches the surface, we now get warts-and-all glimpses into their lives – and Fighting Back: The Chris Nilan Story delivers in a big way.
