The documentary offers a behind-the-scenes look at the team's preparation and participation in the Feb. 15-17 CCHA series between Notre Dame and Miami that culminated in the two teams playing in the opening game of the OfficeMax Hockey City Classic played at historic Soldier Field in Chicago, Ill., on February 17.

Hockey fans will have the opportunity see the Irish behind the scenes from coaches' meetings to pre-game preparations in the locker room to live action on the bench and the ice during the game. Players and coaches were wired for sound while cameras were imbedded with team for the entire week leading up to the important CCHA series with the RedHawks.
