This account of Canada's 2002 gold medal in Olympics men's hockey features plenty of interviews with members of that great team. Unfortunately, it's here that narrator Barry Abrams sounds least comfortable. When narrating dialogue, he raises his pitch to make the speakers sound giddily excited, and occasionally even like children. A more measured tone would have been appropriate for the group of hardened hockey players. Otherwise, Abrams handles the narrative well enough, doing his best to depict the on-ice excitement with an energetic delivery. For Canadian hockey fans, anyway, this production will bring back memories of this shining Olympic moment. D.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
