From Mike Mastovich at the Tribune-Democrat:
Imagine the tough-as-nails Hanson Brothers as a trio of pacifists more into meditation and world peace than putting on the foil.
It might be difficult to believe, but the Hansons have a mellow mentality at the outset of “Slap Shot: The Junior League,” the third installment of the motion picture “Slap Shot” originally filmed in Johnstown in 1976.
