Great Britain wins gold

Icing a 12-man squad comprised primarily of Canadian-raised and trained players, the Lions earned a controversial gold by going 5-1-1 at the 1936 Garmisch-Partenkirchen Games. Goalie Jimmy Foster, a two-time Allan Cup-winner with the Moncton Hawks, allowed just three goals in seven games as the Brits played the US to a scoreless tie then stunned the Canucks 2-1. A 5-0 win over the Czechs in the finale sealed the country's first, and only, major hockey title.
