Example text

In 1972 the NHL bosses seldom thought about what was best for the game or its players; it was almost always about what was best for the business of hockey. For example, they effectively shelved the Nats program in 1970 because they thought it was not good for business—based on financial costs. They saw that a well-educated, more mature player entering professional hockey in his early twenties would initially cost an NHL owner more than an eighteen-year-old, poorly educated player with little or no business experience or opportunity.

To make sure there would be no comeback that night, big brother Frank Mahovlich nailed the coffin shut to close out the scoring at 4–1. The only goals in the Series for the Mahovlich brothers couldn’t have come at a more crucial time. Team Canada was back in the Series! The Soviets were human, and they could be beaten. Hockey fans could breathe again. But everyone knew that the Series was a long way from over. k Game Three was in Winnipeg and presented a new set of challenges for Team Canada. They had gotten the monkey off their back in Toronto, but Sinden still had to find the best lineup to continue their success.

Early in the second period, Gilbert Perreault scored on an end-toend rush, getting Team Canada into the game and closing the gap. And then we started to see the wheels fall off for Team Canada. A questionable goal, which would have tied the game at 2–2, was disallowed, and the team started to slide into a black hole. The Soviets stretched their lead to 4–1 midway through the period. Team Canada could make nothing go right. And we noticed the crowd had become unmerciful and ugly, booing every mistake.
