Il a neigé à Calgary. Il faudra beaucoup de travail à Tom et ses amis pour améliorer la surface de glace bosselée du parc Crescent avant le match de hockey annuel de la journée de la famille. La patinoire sera-t-elle prête à temps? Et si c'est le cas, les joueurs auront-ils encore assez d'énergie après avoir fourni tant d'efforts?


It's a snowy February in Calgary, and the bumpy outdoor rink at Crescent Park needs a lot of work. Tom and his friends pledge to perfect it in time for the annual Family Day hockey game, and soon they get to work. But maintaining and improving a rink proves to be a lot of work for the boys: they are faced with repeated snowfalls, ice damage, illness, and poor performance in their hockey games due to their weariness from all of the extra work! Will the rink be ready for the big game?

Original title: The Rink Rats
