Lot #739

This beautiful program and pair of ticket stubs commemorate the Super Series ‘76 “Game of the Century” between the Montreal Canadiens and Red Army played on New Year’s Eve 1975. This game has been called one of the greatest hockey games and the greatest tie game ever played.

The game pitted the Montreal Canadiens, who were just entering their dynasty phase, vs. the Soviet Red Army, who many considered the greatest hockey team on the planet. The game was part of Super Series ’76 and was played at the Montreal Forum. The Soviets were coming off a 7-3 trouncing of the New York Rangers. The game was played to a 3-3 tie as Vladislav Tretiak kept the Soviets in the game despite being outshot 38-13. After beating the Boston Bruins 5-2, The Red Army team took a 4-1 beating at the hands of the Stanley Cup Champion Flyers (A program from the Flyers game is also up for bid in this auction) and finished their 4-game schedule 2-1-1. This rare program and ticket stubs combo are in very nice condition and would make a great addition to your international collection.
