I don't quite understand.

In 1976 Canada defeated the Russians in the Canada Cup.

And the Russian team in that tournament was by no means a stacked team since the following players at were left at home - Gennady Tsygankov, Yuri Lyapkin, Valeri Kharlamov, Boris Mikhailov, Vladimir Petrov, Vladimir Shadrin, and Alexander Yakushev, all of whom were part of their 1976 Olympic gold medal winning squad.
