1999 Bronze Medal Game

On the broadcast last night, the TSN guys (Gord Miller, anyway) talked about the 1999 bronze medal game, where Slovakia beat Sweden. They were talking about the Slovak reaction to winning the medal. I've been looking around for video, but can't find any.

Does anyone have a link, or maybe even a copy of the bronze medal game from 1999? I'd love to see it.

I kinda doubt it, I dont recall ever seeing a video of that game na dit got mentioned plenty of times in Slovak media, Ive only ever seen a few pictures of the Slovak team from that year, but Im not even sure whether any of them where from the Sweden game.

Thanks!

I tried turning it into a movie, but it turns out that playing the same pic 30 times per second .... doesn't make a movie. Damn!

I'll just use my poor imagination to guess at what happened before they started singing.

Thanks again!

I saw Ladislav Nagy's jersey from that game on display at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Some celebration on the bench


Zoltan Batovsky [RIP] on the right


The boys next to the team bus. Spot the young Gaborik. Seven of the players went on to win medals with the senior team. Nine went on to play in the NHL. One of them went on to win a Stanley Cup. One of them died shortly afterwards in an auto accident.


Jan Lasak, named best goaltender of the tournament.

I remember during that time people where talking about Slovakia as the next big hockey nation. While they have had some success they really haven't developed. The 1999 team did have substansial talent though.

Czechoslovak hockey has been around longer than Russian hockey.

I think, for the next few years, Slovakia was a big hockey country. U18 was also 3. on their WJC and senior team won, silver, gold and Bronze in WCH in next 4 years. And in 2001/2002 NHL season we saw 31 Slovak players. The most in history. But after that....

We re definitely the worst of the big hockey nation, but definitely the only one from smaller hockey nations with chance for big upset on senior level. We have bad times now and we're rebuilding our NT.
