On Wednesday, December 15, in Moscow at the CSKA-Arena, as part of the Channel One Cup, a match of the hockey teams Russia – Canada will take place. “MK-Sport” presents an online broadcast of this event.
16:00 Good afternoon,
we are starting our online broadcast of the first match of the First Channel Hockey Cup.
Today, a unique event awaits spectators – within the framework of the Eurotour (that is, the tournament of European hockey teams), the Canadian national team takes part in the match: this country has formed a reserve team that will go to the Olympics if the agreement between the NHL and the organizers of the Olympic tournament fails. Strictly speaking, the Russian national team, which will play on the CSKA-Arena ice today, is in approximately the same position: if players from the NHL can come to the Olympic Games, then only a few players will remain from the current squad.
If the NHL players do not get to Beijing, then it is this team that will try to defend the Olympic title in the capital of China.
In any case, the confrontation between Russia and Canada in hockey always deserves to be watched. By the way, the management of our team tried to make the match even more memorable: a special kit was released especially for this game. According to the website of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, “in honor of the 75th anniversary of Russian ice hockey, Russia will play in a retro uniform of the 1956 model, when our country won Olympic hockey gold for the first time in history.”
