Remembering A Great Historical Hockey Rivalry


There is a big game tomorrow at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, huh?

Old rivalry, good old memories of a good old hockey.

Things are different now.

No more CCCP.

No more Iron Curtain.

Finally, no more Canada Cup.

It’s Russia now.

There are Russian franchise players in the NHL now.

And, yes. It’s the World Cup of Hockey now.

Russians are drinking Molson beer in Moscow and Canadians enjoy Stoli in Toronto.

It’s a different world now!

Besides the memories of a great historical hockey rivalry, it’s a good game to watch.
