Lake Placid, 1932: Sportsmanship has always been of utmost importance in hockey. Here, captains John Chase of the US and William Cockburn of Canada “put ‘er there” while getting geared up for the Third Winter Olympics. As the photo caption duly (painfully, for American fans) points out, Canada won gold while the US finished as the runner-up.
Bavaria, Germany, 1936: Canada and the US meet again, this time at the Garmisch-Partenkirchen Winter Olympics. No mask to protect this goalie. No, a hat should do just fine!
Here’s a wider view of the action from 1936. The flags of nations fluttering in the winter air and the stands packed with the border battle in full swing! Can we bring the Olympics outdoors one more time, just for fun?
