Anyone who lived it remembers where they were, and what they were doing, when Paul Henderson scored the goal heard 'round the world. Four decades later, Paul Henderson tells the story you won't hear anywhere else- of triumph, grace, of life, and death. Since Henderson's time, television and money have turned games into transactions, pitting millionaires against billionaires in a fight for the spoils. Hockey Night in Canada's Gord Stellick looks at how money has forever changed the game. This is CONTEXT, the show that looks at life beyond the headlines.
This was a sports episode about values. NHL wide we looked at what values were driving the NHL lock out. Then we brought it down to the player; how does a hockey star chose his personal values? Paul Henderson told us this; have God shape your values, and you can handle anything. In Paul Henderson's case, low NHL wages when he played the game, and today, his retirement bonus includes a body full of cancer. He says God has given him peace and joy. I'm impressed. Check out the source for those values, Paul told us - go get your own peace with God.
