The 1987 Canada Cup 3 game finals featured thrilling end to end action between the powerful Soviet national team and Team Canada. There was little to choose from, with only one goal separating the two teams. And that goal didn't come until nearly the final minute of the final game.
This photo shows Canada's two dream superstars, Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, teamed up for the only time in their careers. What magic it was, as the duo supplied the winning goal in both games 2 and games 3.
Just thinking about it makes me want to pop in the DVD and watch series all over again for like the millionth time.
Unfortunately it was also a display of the most tilted officiating favoring the home team since the Moscow Olympics.
