The Goal Heard Around The World

September 28, 1972
Broadcaster Foster Hewitt calling the game at Moscow's Luzhniki Arena: "Here's a shot. Henderson makes a wild stab for it and falls. Here's another shot. Right in front. They score! Henderson scores for Canada!" Paul Henderson scores his third consecutive game-winning goal to lead Canada to a series victory over the Soviet National Team. Team Canada had actually fought back from a three-goal deficit in the third period to even the match at 5-5 before Henderson scored the winner with 34 seconds remaining.
