๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ IHLC Classics: The Red Army Stuns Canada…And The World

From time to time, TheIHLC.com will feature detailed recaps and boxscores of some of the most legendary games in international hockey history, considered to be “IHLC Classics.” Today, in honour of Russian National Day, we feature the Red Army’s first major international title, and their debut IHLC matchup, against Canada to finish the 1954 World Championship.


๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ Soviet Union 7-2 Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
Worldย Championship Final Round
Stockholms Olympiastadion, Stockholm ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช
Sunday, 07 March 1954

There is no question that 1954 was the start of the modern era of international hockey. Prior to the World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden, that year, Canada ruled the ice lanes uncontested.

The Soviets had only started playing “Canadian hockey” (as opposed to European bandy) in 1946, and just eight years later that nationโ€™s top players and managers believed they were ready to play against the world โ€“ and win.
