Office Moving Day Celebration

I was living in the West end of Toronto at the time. I recall we were moving the office that day. We had a little time that day, so my buddy said let’s go across the street and grab some lunch. They had the TV on and I was so sad because we were down 5-3 for Russia.I thought this was the last game that meant so much and we’re going to lose. They had to win a Russia which was really hard. When they mad it 5-4, I thought, well maybe? When Henderson flipped it by Tretiak, I couldn’t believe it!! We just howled! We jumped up and cried, it was just fantastic!
