Now and Then (1972-2016): Scored For Canada
On September 28 1972, with 34 second left in the game, Paul Henderson scored a game and a tournament winning goal for Canada at the 1972 Summit Series.
On September 29, 2016, with 44 second left in the game, Brad Marchand scored a game and a tournament winning goal for Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.
Perhaps, it’s not fully appropriate to compare two great goals for Team Canada.
Different times. Different Teams Canada. Different opponent. Different things at stake.
Still, it’s very symbolic and it’s a true moments of joy with a 44 years difference between them.
It’s ironic but, at the 2016 WCH, Yevgeny Kuznetsov of Russia also scored a twin goal to Kharlamov’s goal in 1972.
