    Across Canada! 

    The four games played in Canada in the 1972 Canada-Soviet Union series were played in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver. Can you share an interesting fact about one of these cities?

      The corner of Portage and Main in downtown Winnipeg is unofficially known as “the coldest corner in all of Canada.” It deserves that tile, trust me. If you ever visit Winnipeg in January, you’ll know why.

        Thanks Kyle for getting us started with such a great fact about Winnipeg. I think I’ll take your word for it!

        Anybody else have anything to share about these cities?

        Thanks, Kyle. It is super amazing that you are doing this for the kids. I haven’t been to Winnipeg but I have been to Montreal a few years back. I love how the historic area of the city has buildings dating back to the 17th Century with traditional cobblestone streets. You feel as if you have gone back in time a few hundred years when walking around.

          I have not spent much time in Montreal. We are going there for a game this weekend so I am excited to check out the old parts of the city.
