Product Description

From Amazon

A Day in the Life of the Maple Leafs is as accurate a pictorial record of a hockey game as we're likely to get. Twelve photographers set out to make a morning-to-midnight document of a single gameday--Saturday, December 8, 2001--when the New York Rangers visited Toronto. Four hundred and fifty rolls of film later this book is the result. Early pages are devoted to players' homes and families, but the day really begins when the teams arrive at the arena for the morning skate--at which point the book becomes a day in the life of Air Canada Centre, the Leafs' state-of-the-art facility, and the teams' hundreds of employees, from cake-makers and icescapers to executives and players. Leafs' alumni abound, from Daryl Sittler to Wendel Clark, and commentary by Andrew Podnieks keeps the book moving as momentum builds toward the game. By the opening faceoff we're right there at the arena, feeling the moment when the day stands still just before the puck is dropped.

The Saturday Hockey Night in Canada broadcast has always defined the Leafs, and although a labour disruption before the game kept regular broadcasters and crews from entering the arena the book includes the essential HNIC presence. Commentator Ron Maclean contributes a foreword; photos reveal switchers and camera positions; and between periods we find Shayne Corson in a corner of the dressing room checking out Don Cherry and Coach's Corner.

Air Canada Centre was built with camera angles in mind, and the detail of the action photos is extraordinary: Bryan McCabe drooping like a rag doll after bouncing off Eric Lindros, Curtis Joseph focusing intently up ice, an overhead angle of Mats Sundin, cleanly beating Petr Nedved to the draw. Anyone who's attended a Leafs' game, or wants to know what it feels like, will get a charge out of A Day in the Life. --David Gowdey
