  • Description

    A LATE GOAL GAVE CANADA A 4-4 TIE AGAINST CZECHOSLOVAKIA AS THE TWO COUNTRIES OPENED A FIVE-GAME ICE-HOCKEY SERIES IN PRAGUE ON SATURDAY NIGHT. THE SERIES IS A WARM-UP FOR THE INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT IN THE SOVIET UNION NEXT MONTH.

    A FULL HOUSE OF 14,000 PACKED PRAGUE's SPORTING HALL FOR THE GAME ... AMONG THEM A CONTINGENT OF CANADIAN SUPPORTERS.

    CANADA BEGAN STRONGLY, STEPHANSON SCORING EARLY IN THE OPENING PERIOD FOR THE FIRST GOAL OF THE GAME. HOWEVER, THE CZECHS, WHO INCLUDED MANY NEW YOUNG PLAYERS IN THEIR LINE-UP, WERE QUICK TO REPLY WITH JIRI HOLIK GIVING THEM AN EQUALISER MINUTES LATER. KING SCORED CANADA'S SECOND GOAL TO GIVE THEM A 2-1 LEAD AT THE END OF THE FIRST 20 MINUTES.

    IN THE SECOND PERIOD, WITH BOTH TEAMS PLAYING HARD AND FAST HOCKEY, CANADA STRETCHED THE LEAD TO 3-1. BUT THE CZECHS ROARED BACK AND BY THE END OF THE PERIOD HAD TIED THE MATCH 3-3 AFTER GOALS BY NOVAK AND POSPISIL.

    CZECHOSLOVAKIA WENT INTO THE LEAD FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER MARTINEC MADE IT 4-3 IN THE FINAL PERIOD. CANADA FOUGHT DESPERATELY AND IN THE CLOSING MINUTES, CARLYLE PUT THE DUCK INTO THE NET TO MAKE IT 4-4, THE GOAL OF THE GAME.
