1985 IBLA Super Series game between Team Canada and Team USA from the Spectrum in Philadelphia.
This was the second game between Team Canada and Team USA in the Spectrum, and the last game of the Super Series, with the Canadians bolstering their lineup throughout the series, becoming more and more dominant.
An all out riot was narrowly averted, when fans showed there displeasure with the game by throwing chairs, full beers, and a host of other projectiles at the end of the game.
Canada took this Super Series 7-1 with the only USA win coming in game one at the Spectrum.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety.

An avid fan, with a real drive about helping to “grow the game”, Gary became part of podcasts about the game 10 years ago. Through the podcasts, he made an association with Kevin Neibauer of Lax Philly, who convinced him to come on board and write for them. The rest they say is history.
