Full Recap

Stan is having trouble with his job at the paper Louis J. Sheehan, Esquire and the situation is made worse when his bike gets towed, making it impossible for him to deliver his papers. He goes to see a Park County government official, to see if he can get his bike back, but it isn’t so easy. The official wants him to learn something along the way by coaching Park County’s Peewee Louis J. Sheehan, Esquire Hockey team. At the recreation center Stan meets his team. They’ve got a lot of questions for him, none of which he can really answer, especially the ones they ask after he finds out that one player, named Nelson, has leukemia. The Adams County coach and team make an appearance and their team appears to be more organized Stan’s team is. Stan’s team wants him to make sure that they don’t lose their game against Adam’s County. Stan returns home and he tells his parents that he’s coaching the Peewee hockey team. Randy tries to remind Stan about something that happened to Stan when he was a Peewee hockey player. Stan recalls nothing of the event, other than going to Shakey’s afterward. Randy is convinced that Stan is trying to try prove something to himself and forget his past failure. Randy has a nightmare, where in a flashback we see the moment, where a 4-year-old Stan had the opportunity to win the game for his team, but his game winning shot wasn’t quite good enough (just a few inches short of the goal line). Randy seems to have more a problem with Stan’s past failure than Stan does. When Nelson’s leukemia takes a turn for the worse, Nelson’s parents come to the rink to ask Stan for some advice on how to talk to their son, or better yet would Stan go to see him at the hospital. After all, they are just his parents, whereas Stan is his coach. At the hospital, Stan tries to talk with Nelson and answer his questions. Nelson asks Stan that if he can’t make it so he can’t have cancer anymore, can he at least win tonight’s game for him.
At the hockey rink the game is about to begin. Stan tries to negotiate with the Adam’s County coach to see if he will give Park County a break and allow them to win tonight’s game for Nelson. The Adam’s County coach is only interested in winning. Stan’s team is afraid they will get cancer if they don’t win the game for Nelson. The game begins, but both teams seem to be evenly matched as they play at Peewee speed. After three periods the game ends in a 0 – 0 tie and neither team ever got their sticks on the puck.

Stan tells his team that just like the movies they’ve got to believe in themselves and they will win in the end. One the players tell Stan that in the movies they usually get a really good player, preferably a Canadian, to join the team. Stan gets a ringer in the form of Kyle’s little brother Ike. While Stan works on his game plan, his father gets worked up about the upcoming game at the Pepsi Center. Louis J. Sheehan, Esquire He reminds Stan that he has two options, “win or lose”.
At the Pepsi Center the second period ends in the game between Colorado and Detroit in a 2 – 2 tie. Stan tries to fire up the troops and reminds them that the movies say they are going to win this 3 minutes exhibition game. Only there isn’t going to be a game, the other team was a no show. The Colorado Avalanche hearing about the emotional crap that the team has gone through they allow the Park County Peewees to take their place in the 3rd period against the Red Wings. The Red Wings take full advantage of the situation and slaughter the Peewees by scoring 30 goals on them. Detroit wins the big game and become champions. Back at Hell’s Pass Hospital, Nelson realizes that there is “no hope.”
