1969

Know your hockey history: found this on YouTube while I was searching for something else. Arguably the most political hockey game in history, Czechoslovakia meets the Soviet Union in 1969, the year after the Soviet invasion. It's all in Swedish and Slovakian, but some things transcend language -- check out #5 in blue (think it's Jaroslav Holík, Bobby's dad) after the Czechoslovakia goal at :41.
