The giants of the ice hockey game met in Oslo today to fight for the world championship, Canada's best versus the cream of Russia. A crowd of 10,000, with a sprinkling of Canadians and Russians, came to watch the final match, and see Canada win.
In a game that from the start was highly charged with excitement and was that way until the final whistle, Canada chalked up a 3-1 win, bringing their aggregate scores for the series to an impressive total of 82 goals for and 6 against.
The scorers for the Canadian side were Bob Attersley, Connie Broden and Bus Gagnon. A goal was pushed in during the last second of the game but the referee's whistle beat it, and it was all over. The first goal of the match was scored by Alexandrov of Russia.
During the first period Broden was sent to the penalty box for two minutes, but in the fourth period he shot in his team's second goal.
At the final whistle fans and members of the team's staff rushed onto the ice and mobbed the Canadians. When the playing area had been cleared Mr. Aheren presented the victors with the Championship Cup. This was then passed from player to player each of whom hugged and kissed it, which is understandable considering the work they put into winning it.
The teams were as follows;-
Canada; Henderson, Edwards, Laparinde, Treen, Sinden, O'Connor, Smith, Burns, Myles, Bonello, Broden, Samolenko, Attersley, Gagnon, and McKenzie.
