Special offers and product promotions
It is a moment unlike any other in time. From coast to coast, Canada is united by the game we call our own. The outcome of this prehistoric "Summit Series" is decided in the final minute of the final game. After playing the Soviets in the Forum, Maple Leaf Gardens, Winnipeg and Vancouver, Team Canada leaves for Moscow with only one victory on home ice. Behind the Iron Curtain, they lose the first of the remaining four at the Luzhniki Ice Palace. What follows, is the most dramatic hockey series ever played.
It was the most dramatic hockey series ever played, won by a historic goal in the last minute. Featuring the entire eight-game series of the 1972 hockey summit between Russia and Canada, Canada's Team of the Century combines the thrill of Canada's national sport with a great moment in Canadian history. Evoking a moment of nostalgia for those who were around at the time and showcasing a legend for younger generations, Canada's Team of the Century is a thrilling watch for all ages. What could be more essentially Canadian?

There are a lot of great interviews with the players in 2002. Think about how often you hear baseball players say winning the World Series is everything. Think about how often hockey players say winning the Stanley Cup is everything. Now imaging Phil Esposito, in a post game 2 interview, saying that single game win is better than winning the Stanley Cup. Cournyer said something similar (per Gary Bergman).
Game 6 is as good of a game as you'll ever see. I couldn't believe how many guys got knocked to the ice. I also now realize how great Phil Esposito was. He was often ridiculed for scoring garbage goals on rebounds. He was a lot more than that.
If you're a hockey fan, and/or you remember the tension between North America and the USSR in days of old, buy it! It's $35CAN very well spent.
goes on. If "YOU" love hockey,as much as i do, you will totally enjoy the pure nostalgia of these games. It's a "WINNER!"
