Earlier, at the crowd's insistence, Hen- derson and Esposiio had been hoisted on Ihe shoulders of their team-mates. Even though a large portion of the crowd could neither see nor hear what went on, every- one cheered on cue. The only solemn moment came when the crowd almost reverently sang 0 Canada just after the players appeared on the stage square. Canada hero might never have been had he given up on a broken ankle earlier in the month. The lanky defcnccmn scored wilh four seconds remaining in the game to give Team Canada a 3-3 tie with the Czech- oslovakian national team. It was the second goal of the game for Savard but was origi- nally credited to team-mate J. P. Parise following a concerted series of swipes at Uie puck. "Three of us, (Bobby) Clarke, Savard and me, all took a cut at Parise said in a post-game interview. "But so far as I'm concerned, it was Savard who got the good wood on it." The Canadian team, playing eight players who per- formed in the final gamo against Russia last Thursday, was hard-pressed (or (lie tie. The Czeclis took command after the first period and it wasn't until just before the fi- nal goal that Ihe Team Canada players seemed to recover their poise in time for the late-game heroics that have seemed to be- come a pattern of their recent games.

But Saturday was Savard's day, a day that might not have been had he followed up his de- sire earlier in the month to call It quits. The 25-year-old defenceman has played only 40 National Hockey League games in the last two years while recovering from two broken legs. Then, with the Team Canada- Russia series tied up after a game in Winnipeg on Sept. 6, he suffered a broken ankle in a morning workout before the team departed for Vancouver. "I thought I was through. After all, after twice breaking the other leg. But then I found I was able to start skat- ing in Sweden and play in the second game in Sav- ard said Saturday.
