    THE FINAL GAME IN THE WORLD ICE HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS, MARCH 18, AT COLORADO SPRINGS, U.S.A. WAS A FIGHT TO DECIDE SECOND PLACE BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA. SWEDEN WERE ALREADY ESTABLISHED AS WORLD CHAMPIONS, HAVING WON ALL THEIR SEVEN MATCHES.

    WITH FIVE WINS AND ONE DEFEAT EACH, THE U.S.A. AND CANADA WERE ON EQUAL TERMS WHEN THEY WENT ON TO THE RINK AT THE DENVER COLISEUM.

    FORMER HOLDERS OF THE TITLE, CANADA PLAYED LIKE CHAMPIONS FORM THE START, MOUNTING ONE ATTACK AFTER THE OTHER ON THE AMERICAN GOAL.
