Kukla's Korner Hockey

from The Ice Hole at the Province,
I was off to the Intourist, the source of so many stories from 1972, the home for Team Canada then and their ghosts now.
It’s where the players were allegedly fed crow and horse steaks.
There had to be someone still there from 1972, someone who remembered the Canadians, someone who could confirm or officially kill one of hockey’s greatest urban legends.
The Intourist was a 22-story glass, aluminum, and concrete cell-like hotel that was the brainchild of Soviet President Nikita Khrushchev, who envisioned it like a skyscraper he saw in Manhattan (yeah, that was a swing and a miss Kruschev).
