Perhaps you should watch it again, and see how cheating went both ways! You are mentioning one incident out of 8 games.

Bottom line is we pulled it off when we had to, being down and going into their Country to win it. This makes Canada the better team by far.

I'm very proud how Canada accomplished what they did!

Just so you know, watch the '87 documentary and at approx. 30 minutes into it, they mention the Russians actually asked for the Canadain Referee Korharsky in the Finals.

GO CANADA GO!

No point in letting this go any further.

The event this thread was about has taken place 4 months ago anyway (and hasn't even been discussed).
