Whether it's the 'Flying V' or a reenactment of Herb Brooks' famous pre-game speech, there is always something iconic that resonates with hockey fans when their favorite sport is the backdrop on the silver screen. There may not be many "hockey movies" out there to choose from, but in ranking a list, it can be as intense of a battle as if players were fighting for a loose puck along the boards.
We asked Sharks twitter fans to weigh in on their favorite hockey themed movies for this week's Twitter 10.
