Mikhailov: We would beat Canada if we knew they would give us cars
MOSCOW, September 21 – RIA Novosti, Andrey Senchenko. Two-time Olympic champion and Moscow supervisory board member CSKA Boris Mikhailov described a funny incident that occurred in the Soviet team’s locker room after the last game with Canadian hockey players in the 1972 Super Series.
The Super Series consisted of eight matches. Canadian hockey players won four victories, the USSR national team – three. Another match ended in a draw.
Mikhailov also expressed the opinion that the participation of the Russian team in the 2024 World Cup is mandatory.
“Currently, the World Cup is a starting point. But there are some questions about who will organize it from our side. There were a lot of things I didn’t understand when we went to the first World Cup. It should be the team. We are an empty place,” added Mikhailov.
