WHAT’S THE BEST CANADA-RUSSIA GAME OF ALL-TIME?
It’s been 53 years since Canada and the Soviet Union first met in an international competition – at the 1954 IIHF World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden.
Since then the two hockey powers have met in a number of settings, in a number of tournaments. Some games are forgettable – a 9-0 USSR win at the 1974 IIHF World Junior Championship, or an 11-1 USSR win at the 1978 IIHF World Championship come to mind – but some have left an indelible mark on international hockey, and have earned a place in the culture of hockey in both countries.
In the days ahead, leading up to the start of the Canada/Russia Super Series, hockeycanada.ca is counting down the Top 10 Canada vs. Russia games of all-time.
