In the nineties, two Canadian NHL teams follow our biggest stars into the United States. Hockey suffers scandal and heartbreak with the Alan Eagleson affair. In all this darkness, women's hockey is a ray of light. 1.5 million fans watch the Canadian national team win the first-ever World Championship in 1990. France St-Louis plays at that game, and continues playing all the way to Nagano where women's ice hockey makes its Olmpic debut. The women are defeated by the Americans. But the greater upset is the men's team, finally made up of NHL stars, losing to the Czechs and placing out of the medals. As the decade of discontent comes to a close, Canada's game is in need of renewal.
