Let’s Go to the Movies: February 13, 2020 – The Russian Five


This fascinating documentary tells the true story of Russian immigrants who became American heroes, ice hockey teammates who became family, and the scrappy, resilient city of Detroit–together they became Stanley Cup Champions, twice. Imagine a world where people of different nations help each other become excellent. It is possible.

The Russian Five is the name of the unit of five Russian ice hockey players who defected from the USSR to play for the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL. The Russian Five consisted of five players: Sergei Fedorov, Slava Fetisov, Slava Kozlov, Igor Larionov and Vladimir Konstatino
