- Bring it in, Gordon.

- Okay, Dad.

All right! Way to shoot, there.

You look good, son.


Listen, i want you

to remember this pond.

No matter how far you go,

don't forget your home.

Here in the third period, where the

Minnehaha Waves led by Gordon Bombay...

are in the lead four to one.

What a story this is.!

He went from a legal career to coach

the Minneapolis Mighty Ducks...

to a State Pee Wee

Championship last year.

And this year, at age 29...

he's one short step away

from the N.H.L.

There's the puck at center ice.

It's intercepted by Gordon Bombay.

Bombay across the blue line. He's in

all alone. Great chance for Bombay.

Dekes once, twice, in front.

He shoots. He scores.!


Gordon Bombay, unassisted,

puts his team up five to one.

Boy, he can still fly.

Ifhe keeps this up, I'd expect to see

him in the National Hockey League...

real soon.

Here's Bombay in his own zone. Comes up the

right wing side, steps away from one check there.

Still has the puck at center ice.

Gets pinned along the boards.

Fights to get free.

Aah! Aah!

Oh, what a hit.!

Bombay goes down hard.

~Like the river flows ~

~Like the snow melts ~

~ You're gonna find your situation ~

~ Changing for the better ~

~Like the melting snow ~

~Just let your troubles go ~

~ 'Cause you and I ~

~ will get through this together ~

- ~Some days seem to drag on forever ~

- it's great to be home.

~ You need all your strength ~

- ~Just to keep your head together ~

- Hello,Jan!

Welcome back, Gordon.

Get in! Get in!

Thanks for comin' down to get me.

Great to see ya.

Hans couldn't make it?

Ah, don't get me

started on that strudel-head.

He went back

to the old country for the summer.

Left me to run

the shop all by myself.

Wanted to visit our mama.

She loves him more, you know.

~ This too will pass ~

~ This too will pass ~~

- Sorry, did i wake you?

- Hey, Charlie.

- Hey, Coach. it's good to see you.

- Good to see you.

We really missed you.

For breakfast, my specialty:

Jan's hasen-

Hasenpfeffer and eggs.

- Yeah.

I thought I smelled

something burning.

i see you've met

my new apprentice.

Jan told me you did

this job when you were my age.

- That's right. i hope he pays you more than he paid me.

- You got paid?

Eat, everybody, before

the hasenpfeffer gets cold.

That was a good day.

Look at Charlie. God, he's grown.

Oh. They do that.

Since his mother remarried, he

started spending a lot of time here.

i just had to hire him.

- i should've kept in touch more.

- But you are here now.

So what's your plan?

Have you talked

to Ducksworth?

No, no. i'm not a lawyer,

Jan, i'm a player.

But your injury,

it requires rest and time.

Yeah, time is something

i don't have a whole lot of.

i was this close to the N.H.L.,Jan.

i was back in the game.

And, man, i was alive.

Have you thought about coaching?

After all, you were

the Minnesota Miracle Man.

Well, coaching the Ducks was one

of the best things in my life...

but i can't make a living

coaching Pee Wee hockey.

Where there's a way,

there must be a will.

My hockey suppliers tell me

Team U.S.A. is still without a coach...

for the

Junior Goodwill Games.

Sounds great. Give 'em

a call for me,Jan.

- Maybe i can sharpen their skates.

- Don't knock skate sharpening.

i know.

it's a great skill,Jan.

But i don't want to spend the rest of my life

sharpening skates in this rinky-dink town.

i want something better.

Something bigger.


- You don't have to do them right now.

- Oh, thanks.

You have a customer.

Go and help him.

Then come back and do them.

- Can i help you?

- Oh!

Oops, sorry.

Got away from me. Hi.

Oh, wow, yeah.

You look great. Yeah.

- Yeah, much better than your pictures.

- Thanks.

i'm, uh, Don Tibbles...

Senior V.P.,

Hendrix Hockey Apparel.

How's the knee? i have a doctor in Los

Angeles i want to take a look at it.

- He's doing great things with baboon ligaments.

- Hendrix Hockey, huh?

What exactly is it that

you want, Mr. Tibbles?

i want you, Gordon.

i want the next coach of U.S.A. to become a household name.

i want you to become

synonymous with winning...

and winning to become

synonymous with Hendrix.

Er, wait a minute.

Y- You're joking, right? i mean...

- this is a joke.

- it's no joke. This is the real thing, Gordon.

You want me to coach

Team U.S.A.?

Your friend Jan's been

pitching you for months.

Gordon, what you did with the

Ducks, there was magic, and we-

and by we, i mean

Hendrix Hockey...

theJunior Goodwill Games and your country

- need that magic.

What do ya say, coach?

Come on.

Let's round up those Ducks.

- Got a lot of work to do.

- Gordon.

Use this.

- Thanks,Jan.

- Go get 'em, Gordon.

Hey, Charlie.!

Hey.! You wanna

play some hockey?

Watch me go.!

This is your last chance.!

Come on, man! Move it!

Yes! Yeah!
