Innsbruck 1964. Olympic games. USSR vs Sweden
This is our game The best hockey games 1954-2008 in photos.
The men’s ice hockey tournament (women’s was added in 1998) at the 1964 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria, was the 10th Olympic Championship, also serving as the 31st World Championships and the 42nd European Championships. The games were held at the Olympiahalle Innsbruck. The Soviet Union won its second Olympic gold medal, fourth World Championship and eighth European Championship. Canada, represented for the first time by a purpose built national team organized and coached by Father David Bauer, was shut out of the medals for the first time in Olympic ice hockey history—still in contention for the gold medal on the last day until a loss to the Soviets, the Canadians were controversially denied a bronze medal as the rules were hastily changed by the IIHF late in the final period of the final game, where the Czechoslovakians were being dramatically outscored by Sweden just minutes prior to the medals presentation
