I know that the CSSR beat the USSR in one game, maybe 3-2. What I remember most is watching it a week later or at least highlights on CTV Wide World of Sports and it was a VERY emotional game for the Czechoslovaks. The first game after the Soviet invasion of 1968.

It was a fierce battle and lots of blood on the ice.
CSSR beat the Soviets twice*, by scores of 2-0 and 4-3. No, I don't have the game(s) and I don't know if there are any, er, copies around. The Canada Cup '76 DVD set has some (very little) footage of one of the games, if I remember correctly.

* I think the only time Czechoslovakia managed to do that (at least in the 60s-80s). The Czechs beat USSR in the World Championships quite often in the Seventies, but not twice.
