Reseña del editor:

It was called the "series of the century" and out of it came the greatest goal ever scored. Incredibly, the Summit Series, featuring Canada and the Soviet Union in a hockey showdown, is now 40 years old, but time has only strengthened and immortalized those eight games that changed the game. No moment has faded, and no series of games since has had the same profound effect on a country, a culture and a sport.

Using its best NHL stars, Canada was supposed to win all eight games, but the Soviets won the first, in Montreal, by a whopping 7-3 score, and from then on fans were witness to the greatest matchup ever. It featured the leadership of Phil Esposito and the skill of Yvan Cournoyer, the goaltending of Vladislav Tretiak, and the speed of Valeri Kharlamov. And in the end, it featured the heroics of Paul Henderson, who scored the winning goal in each of the final three games to give Canada the series victory, the final of those goals coming with just 34 seconds remaining in game eight, September 28, 1972.

Complete with in-depth interviews of every surviving player and a remarkable cache of colour photographs, Team Canada 1972, is the definitive look at the Summit Series 40 years later, still powerful, still resonating, still remarkable. With every living player contributing to the book with personal memories and thoughts of the series, this official publication provides fans with the most detailed and exciting picture of the series.
