The greatest hockey tournament of all time.

It t started out as a friendly series of eight hockey games between the top NHL players and the Soviet's best and ended up being an international street fight

The Globe and Mail has a special section today to commemorate Canada's win. The oral history section they interviewed over 100 people including Soviet players, fans who when to Russia and even Alan Eagleson is terrific. It's long but worth the read.
