Biggest Goal In Each Country's History?

Something got me thinking about this, and I think it's an interesting question.

As a Canadian, there is little doubt about what the "big three" are for our country for all time biggest goals. Henderson's Summit Series clincher in '72, Crosby's recent Olympic "Golden Goal", and the less important, but still fondly remembered Gretzky to Lemieux in 1987.

The question is what about the other countries out there. I am pretty sure Sweden would take Peter Forsberg's "Postage Stamp" olympic shootout winner, and the U.S. would probably take the "Miracle On Ice" game winner (Eruzione), but what about Russia? And I have no clue about Finland and the Czechs, and it would even be interesting to here about developing hockey nations like Germany and Switzerland, etc.

Anyone?

For Slovakia: Peter Bondra versus Russia, gold medal winning goal of the 2002 World Championships.



Peter Bondra and Pavol Demitra against the Czech Republic in the 2003 World Championships bronze medal game.



-others: Tomas Kopecky versus Sweden in the 2010 Winter Olympic QF.

Czech Rep.

For CZE it's undoubtedly Petr Svoboda's gold medal winner from Nagano, 1998 (CZE-RUS 1-0).

Not that big, but I believe the Russians came back from 4-0 or 4-1 down.

Soviet Union - perhaps Kharlamov's GWG vs Czech at 1976 Olympics.

Russia - Kovalchuk OT winner at 2008 WC

Either this or McClanahan's game-winner against Finland a few days later.

With apologies to Latvian hockey fans if I missed any, but I recall a couple of big Latvian goals. Vadims Romanovskis scoring against Russia in the 2003 World Championships, giving Latvia a 2-1 victory over Russia on May 4th (Latvian Independence Day).

Also I remember Aleksandrs Belavskis swooping around and batting the puck behind Ilya Bryzgalov ten years ago at the 2000 Worlds in Petrograd. It was Latvia's first ever victory over Russia, a star filled Russian roster at that.

I'm not sure, and actually I don't really think it's the biggest goal in Germany's history, but the goal that I consider the biggest goal since I've been following hockey is the goal scored by Mirko Lüdemann against Italy in the qualification tournament for the Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Germany had to win the game. With a loss or a draw the yould have missed the Olympics. The score was 1-1 and Lüdemann scored with 8 seconds left with a turnaround shot from a difficult angle.

I've been looking for a video of this goal for ages but never found one.

For Sweden it is Forsbergs penalty vs Canada in Olympics '94 and Lidströms GWG in '06 finals. Maybe also some goal from the World Championships before my time.

It has to be Stefan Lassen´s OT goal vs USA in the latest WC.

Would that have counted today? Seems to me in International Hockey they now blow the whistle when it hits the goalie's mask. That one definitely went off Salo's forehead.

Beautiful

Belarus goalie tries to shoot goal when 6sec remaining, but some forward takes the puck in the air to himself. It could be goal...

Or an automatic icing and a faceoff in your own zone with 2 or 3 seconds left. The player did the right thing.

As for the puck being blown down when it hit Salo in the mask (presumably), the funny thing is that now the refs have discretion as to whether to blow it down or not depending on the severity of the shot, but at the time of this tournament I think it was an automatic whistle. Oh, well. Those shots from center are sure tricky!

I think they are a tie. Rizzo's goal did allow the US to beat the consensus best team in the world and provide a spark to a nation. But, if Finland would have taken the gold medal, Rizzo's goal would probably be more of a moot point than anything.

People would be saying "Yeah, they beat the Soviet Union. But they still didn't win the gold."

The empty-netter from WC 1962 is also well known, but it is also for Lennart Hylands colour commentary:
