Airing during the Sochi Winter Games, the five-part series features Larionov talking about his career from his days as a young star in the Soviet Union, his struggle for the freedom to play in the NHL, his three Stanley Cup championships with the Detroit Red Wings and more.  Larionov and other former Russian stars talk about past Olympic Games, including their memories of the stunning U.S. victory in the 1980 "Miracle on Ice," as well as the Soviet gold medal wins in the 1984 and 1988 Games.  The series is hosted by Alyonka Larionov, Igor's daughter.

Larionov is one of only five players in the world who have won Olympic Gold, a Stanley Cup, World Championship Gold, Canada/World Cup Gold and World Junior Championship Gold.  In the 1980s he was one of the leaders in the struggle to break down the barrier that had prevented Soviet stars from joining the NHL.  He went on to play for the Vancouver Canucks, San Jose Sharks, Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers and New Jersey Devils in a NHL career that lasted through the 2003-04 season, and he was an integral part of the Red Wings' Stanley Cup Champion teams in 1997, 1998 and 2002.  He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2008.

Part 1: (Now available on SiriusXM On Demand)  Larionov talks about growing up in the Soviet Union and his early days as a young up-and-coming player.

Part 2: (Sunday, Feb. 9, 8:00 pm ET) This episode covers Igor's international and Soviet hockey career with the national and CSKA Moscow teams, including the Olympic gold medal victories in 1984 and 1988.  He talks about the formation of the dominant "KLM Line," which featured Larionov at center between Vladimir Krutov and Sergei Marakov.  The three players were later joined by defensemen Viacheslav Fetisov and Alexei Kasatonov to form the famed "Green Unit."

Part 3: (Tuesday, Feb. 11, 8:00 pm ET)  Igor discusses his struggle for the freedom to take his career to North America, eventually joining the National Hockey League with the Vancouver Canucks, and the highlights from his early NHL career.  Guests on this episode include former Canucks GM and coach Pat Quinn and former Canucks owner Arthur Griffiths.

Part 5: (Friday, Feb. 14, 8:00 pm ET) - On the eve of the U.S.-Russia Men's Hockey match in Sochi, Igor looks back on the 1980 Winter Olympics and the "Miracle on Ice" from the Russian perspective.  Larionov talks with two of his former Soviet teammates, legendary goaltender Vladislav Tretiak and former defenseman Sergei Starikov, who both played in the "Miracle on Ice."  Other guests include Islanders goalie and two-time Russian Olympian Evgeni Nabokov and TV and film producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
