Team Canada - Team Sweden
September 17, 1972. Hovet arena in Stockholm.
En route to their 4 games in Moscow, Canada stopped for 2 exhibition games in Stockholm, Sweden against a Swedish National team. The idea was that Canada would play the two games in order to get used to the bigger ice surface before facing the Soviets in Moscow.
This is the second game, which included an outburst from both teams, which resulted in Wayne Cashman getting his tongue cut open, requiring nearly 50 stitches and forcing him to miss the rest of the Summit Series, although he stayed with the team.
Team Canada was heavily criticized by the Swedes for its "criminal"-style play during the two games. Even the Canadian ambassador was critical of Team Canada's play. The games in Sweden, however, helped bring Canada together as a team and focused them for the final four games.
Team Canada roster:
Ken Dryden, Ed Johnston, Pat Stapleton, Jocelyn Guevremont, Wayne Cashman, Phil Esposito, Jean-Paul Parise, Dale Tallon, Brad Park, Rod Gilbert, Jean Ratelle, Vic Hadfield, Rod Seiling, Don Awrey, Bill Goldsworthy, Stan Mikita, Dennis Hull, Yvan Cournoyer, Gilbert Perreault, Rick Martin
Team Sweden roster:
Curt Larsson, William Lofqvist, Lars-Erik Sjoberg, Karl-Johan Sundqvist, Lars-Goran Nilsson, Ulf Sterner, Dick Yderstrom, Thommy Abrahamsson, Stig Ostling, Anders Hedberg, Mats Ahlberg, Hans Hansson, Bjorn Johansson, Borje Salming, Tord Lundstrom, Hakan Wickberg, Inge Hammarstrom, Arne Carlsson, Mats Lindh, Bjorn Palmqvist
Great game for any hockey fan to enjoy.
There are no commentaries, just the sounds of the game.
The quality is excellent for almost 40 years old game.
