1972-2022: Scoring Tournament Winning Goals 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. Different personalities.
Still, it’s very symbolic and it’s a true moments of joy with a decades of difference between them.
Perhaps, there is always something special in celebration of tournament winning goals on and off the ice in Canada.
Happy 50th Anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series to all who celebrated!
