It Was 32 Years Ago Today

Henderson Scores For Canada

32 years ago today, on September 28, 1972, "The Goal" was scored.  There was only 34 seconds left in the eighth and final game of the Summit Series, and only a win would allow Canada to lay claim to victory in the series against the USSR.  32 years ago today, Paul Henderson scored for Canada.

Bless the CBC Archives.  It really is an awesome resource.  If you want chills, watch this.  If you didn't get chills, you're not human...or you're a communist.

Cournoyer has it on that wing. Here's a shot - Henderson made a wild stab for it and fell. Here's another shot! Right in front - THEY SCORE!!! Henderson has scored for Canada!
