Attention all Canada Cup fans! You will definitely want to ask Santa for the new Canada Cup '87 DVD box set this Christmas.

Game 2 of the Finals was a double over time classic that was edited/butchered to fit the 2 hour VHS format, and when transferred onto the first dvd release, those 2 hour masters were re-used.
this time the full length of the game Gretzky calls his best has been re-stored
here's one of the bonus features:
