Hockey fans travel to Moscow
In September 1972, at the height of the Cold War, over 1,750 hockey fans from Canada fly to Moscow on a package tour offered by Air Canada to watch the remaining four Summit Series games at the Luzhniki Ice Palace. The package (offered in conjunction with Hockey Canada) includes transportation, accommodation and meals – and some of the best hockey ever played! On September 22, in game five, Canada led 4–1, but ended up losing 5–4. Despite the loss, all 3,000 Canadian fans sang the national anthem as Team Canada left the ice. Canada won the remaining three games in a row, to take the series.
