Synopsis

It's the seventh game of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Pittsburgh Penguins are battling the Chicago Blackhawks as 17,000 frenzied fans, including the Vice President of the United States, are on the edge of their seats--unaware that an elite group of terrorists is about to make this a game no one will ever forget. Darren McCord is a fireman with a troubled past. When his young daughter is suddenly taken hostage during the hockey game, McCord engages in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a ruthlessly cold-blooded adversary. With thousands of lives at stake, including that of his son, McCord battles both the terrorists and his own personal demons as the seconds on the game clock race towards a fateful conclusion.
