Kukla's Korner Hockey

Seven minutes into the third period, the puck was fired in past the opposition netminder, rebounding off the backboards on an awkward angle, right on Thamwongsin’s blade. Like any great goal scorer, he released the puck quickly.
It found the back of the net and the crowd erupted in jubilant celebration of the play.
The final score of the game was Kazakhstan 52 Thailand 1.
The match (or ‘out-match,’ if you wanted to be accurate) was part of the hockey portion of the Asian Winter Games, and must remind hockey historians of the early days of international hockey in the first couple of decades of the 20th century, when Canada would run up scores in the 20s, 30s and sometimes more.
