It was the greatest series ever - a clash of cultures, a clash of playing styles, and a battle of wills that was not decided until the final minute of the final game in the month-long, 8-game, two-continent epic. From the opening anthems before Game 1 in Montreal, to the celebration after the final buzzer of Game 8 in Moscow, the entire Canada-Russia Summit Series 1972 is here, as called by the legendary Foster Hewitt - over 26 hours of coverage - in this incredible DVD set! Finally, your chance to re-live every thrilling moment of action - minute by minute, frame by frame - from a time when Canadian hockey dominance was put to its greatest test, and eventually triumphed supreme over the Soviet Union Red Army squad. Produced exclusively for Canadian retailers to commemorate the 35th Anniversary of the series, SportsPosterWarehouse.com is proud to finally make this exhaustive collection available to fans across the country, throughout the USA, and beyond!

In addition, this boxed set includes seven hours of footage and features never offered before! The main bonus in this set is the complete original broadcast of Game 2 of the Canada-Sweden exhibition series that took place in Stockholm between Game 4 in Vancouver and Game 5 in Moscow at Luzhniki Ice Palace, a hard-fought (and badly-refereed) 4-4 draw. Also included are the 1972 CBC short feature, 'Crowd Reaction to Team Canada', showing people around the country watching Game 8; an original documentary recap of the series with brand-new exclusive interviews; the team's induction into the Canada Sports Hall of Fame; coverage of a reunion game; Team of the Century tribute dinner; and more!

It was a series that was jam-packed with Hall of Famers and Superstars like Phil Esposito, Bobby Clarke, Ken Dryden, Tony Esposito, Yvan Cournoyer, Frank Mahovlich, Serge Savard, Bill White, Guy Lapointe, Brad Park, Vladislav Tretiak, Boris Mikhailov, Alexander Maltsev, Alexander Yakushev, Valery Kharlamov, Yuri Liapkin, Alexander Volchkov, and, of course, the hero of all heroes, Paul Henderson, who scored "The Goal" in Game 8 to win the series for Canada. From great play, to on-ice and off-ice drama, this is a true epic that you'll love from beginning to end! The ultimate DVD set for any true hockey fan - over 26 hours of pure hockey enjoyment.
