Winning Goal - 1976 Canada Cup The best hockey teams in the world had never met in an open tournament format before the 1976 Canada Cup event. Six countries competed in the inaugural event: Canada, USSR, USA, Sweden, Finland and Czechoslovakia. Canada and the Czechs advanced to the best-of-three final. Canada won the first game easily, 6-0. Game Two at the Montreal Forum produced a memorable moment in Canadian sports history: With the score deadlocked at 4-4 after regulation time, Darryl Sittler netted the Canada Cup-winning goal. Assistant coach Don Cherry had advised the Canadian players that Czech goalie Vladimir Dzurilla often ventured too far from his net and might be susceptible to being drawn out of position. Sittler followed Cherry's advice perfectly.

Many hockey fans--myself included--rate the 1976 Canadian team as the best ever assembled. The roster was replete with future Hall of Famers: Bobby Orr, Bobby Hull, Denis Potvin, Guy Lafleur, Bobby Clarke, Gilbert Perrault, and Serge Savard, to name but a few.
