Sittler Wins Canada Cup

September 15, 1976
Darryl Sittler scores at 11:33 of overtime as Team Canada sweeps the best-of-three final from Czechoslovakia to claim the first Canada Cup title. Sittler moved down the left wing, faked a shot at netminder Vladimir Dzurilla who had come out fifteen feet to cut down the angle, and then skated past the goalie and deposited the puck into the yawning cage.
Team Canada
"(Coach) Don (Cherry) suggested we try delaying a bit, taking an extra stride or two and then shooting."

Did You Know?

In the summer of 1979, NHL president John Zeigler declared that no 19-year-olds would be exempt from the draft. Teenage stars such as Mike Gartner, Rob Ramage, Craig Hartsburg, Rick Vaive, Michel Goulet and goalie Pat Riggin, all of whom had played as underage juniors the previous season in the WHA, would be up for grabs.
