OT: Canada vs Soviet (Old timers) game at the Civic Centre?

hey guys,

wondering if any of you recall an exhibition game played between Canada and the Soviet Union/Russia in the late 80's or maybe 1990 at the civic centre? It was an old-timers type game, cause I remember my dad took me to see his favorite player play (Frank Mahovlich), who actually ended up not playing. Can't remember any of the players on either team (i was under 10 at the time). I just remember that it was traveling through Canada, so Ottawa wasn't the only spot. Anyway, if anyone out there recalls what it was called, who played, the date, etc - that'd be awesome! cheers
Rob

found a bit about it. It was in Winter 1987 and was the 15 years anniversary of the '72 Summit Series.

A bunch of old timers from the Soviet and Canadian teams played in Hamilton, Montreal and Ottawa (March 17).

Obviously not all the players from '72 were there, but apparently Mahovlich did play along with Bobby Clark, Dave Henderson, Brad Park, Serge Savard, Rob Ellis, Perrault, Cournoyer...

Tretiak played in nets which is pretty cool.

too bad I remember so little of seeing those legends play (although well past their prime!)
