Canada USSR 1972 Hockey 20 Karat Gold Commemorative Presentation Medallion...A Great Estate Find for the Hockey Enthusiast! For many Canadians, the eight-game series between Team Canada and the National Team of the Soviet Union in 1972 provided the greatest moment in the country’s sporting history. Most expected that Canada would handily defeat the Soviet Union, but this confidence quickly disappeared when Canada lost the first game. The series was tied heading into the final game in Moscow, which ended in a dramatic fashion, with Paul Henderson scoring in the final seconds to give Canada the victory. The series would have a lasting impact on hockey in Canada and abroad.
