The rich history of hockey in New Haven and the New Haven Nighthawks

The Last Days of the Coliseum is a 4 Part-2 hour documentary (2010) directed by Quinnipiac University Professor Rich Hanley and narrated by Brian Smith that does an amazing job of explaining the history of New Haven Hockey, the New Haven Veterans Memorial Coliseum, the New Haven Nighthawks and their collective local cultural significance.
