  • Description

    In this season's second match against the USSR at Moscow Sports Palace, Nov 28, Sweden's national ice hockey team were defeated 8-2. Two days earlier, they had won the first match 3-1.

    All out to make good, Russia's ice hockey aces played a tremendously fast game and soon went into the lead. For two thirds the Swedes fought back stubbornly but unsuccessfully.

    By the last third, the Swedish team had recovered enough to worry the hosts with a succession of forceful attacks. In spite of their valiant efforts they could do no more than place two pucks in the Russian net. Final score 8-2 for the Soviet Union - and congratulations all round for a splendid replay.
