Video: Hockey Team Loses 82-0

We have heard of some REALLY lopsided scores in international hockey, especially when an unusual suspect faces off with a traditional opponent.

Take the 2010 women's Olympic qualifying match, played in 2008, where Slovakia destroyed - and I mean absolutely obliterated! - poor Bulgaria 82-0. The shots on goal were 139-0!

If you ever wondered what such a game must be like to witness, well you're in luck. Here's some video footage of the start of that game:

By the way, Bulgaria also lost 41-0 to Italy, 39-0 to Latvia and 30-1 to Croatia in that qualifying tournament. At the time Bulgaria had only 3 indoor hockey rink and 37 registered players.
