Great Moments in Canadian Sports History, Part Two

On February 14, 2002, in Salt Lake City, Canada defeated the USA 5-2 to capture the gold medal in men's "ice" hockey. It had been 50 years earlier that Canada last won this event. The broadcast of the game in Canada was (up to that point, at least) the most-watched TV broadcast in Canadian history.

I had to get up at around 5 a.m. to watch the game live with Japanese "commentary" on NHK. I didn't mind...
