Synopsis: When the Lights Went Out tells the story of a moment in the 1987 World Junior Championship that forever changed the lives of the players involved, and ignited a debate that has yet to subside about the way the game is meant to be played.

When Team Canada skated onto the ice that night in Piestany, Czechoslovakia, they thought they were 60 minutes away from a gold medal. Future superstars like Brendan Shanahan and Theo Fleury, pitted against Russians like Alexei Fedorov and Alex Mogilny, dreamed of returning to Canada in glory. Instead, they were sent home empty-handed, bearers of a legacy that would follow them throughout their careers.

No one who saw it will ever forget it. The mere mention of Piestany evokes the image of twenty fights breaking out all over the ice as players rushed to their mates’ defence, of haymakers, stick-swinging, and even kicking, of a referee skating off the ice in shame.

ESPN hockey writer Gare Joyce tells the story of the game that marked the last time Canadian and Soviet players squared off as enemies, rather than potential team mates in the NHL. It tells the stories of the combatants on the ice. Of the coaches behind the bench. Of officials, international hockey executives, members of the media and even politicians who were caught up in the intrigue.

About the Author: Gare Joyce is a writer on the masthead of ESPN The Magazine. He is also a writer-at-large for Toro Magazine, a sports correspondent for The Christian Science Monitor and a contributor to several other magazines including Canadian Geographic, Maclean’s, and The Walrus. He has won three National Magazine Awards and been a finalist 19 times. He has written two books, Sidney Crosby: Taking the Game by Storm and The Only Ticket Off the Island: Baseball in the Dominican Republic.
