Canada Cup 1981 - USSR vs Canada Hockey DVD, final game
This is one of the historic hockey games played between USSR and Canada. Team Canada has won all Canada Cups except for this one.
Watch rebuilt Team USSR beat one of the best Team Canada ever assembled!
Gretzky, Bossy, Trottier, Gillies, Potvin, Luit and others against rising KLM (Krutov-Larionov-Makarov) line, Shepelev (with a hat trick in this game), Kasatonov, Fetisov, Vasiliev and others. And, of course, great goalie Tretiak, who earned an MVP award of the tournament with his stunning play.
Soviet team has dedicated
that game to the memory of great hockey player Valery Kharlamov, who was killed
in a car crash just few days after the team has left to Canada for tournament.
Soviet players thought about dropping off from the tournament and going back to Russia for funeral, but decided to stay and remember their friend in true hockey style - by winning the Canada Cup in this absolutely tremendous and shocking game!
