With the Charlestown Chiefs facing permanent shutdown closure at the end of the season, Pennsylvania’s minor-league ice-hockey team finds themselves stuck in a long losing streak.

While the Brothers put butts in the stands and gets the Chiefs winning again, its star player, Ned Braden, insists on playing fair. In the end, the team must come together if they want to win their championship game against their most feared opponents named the Syracuse Bulldogs!
