I just love this photo. It comes from the 2007 book release World of Hockey by the IIHF, my favorite hockey book that year, by the way.
Not surprisingly, Canada defeated Hungary handily yesterday, walloping them 9-0 at the 2009 World Hockey Championships.
Hungary has returned to the WHCs for the first time in 70 years. Yesterday's game was the first meeting between Hungary and Canada at this tournament since February 18, 1938!
Even more amazing - that game ended in a 1-1 tie! That is amazing considering at that time Canada was basically unbeatable.
