I'm pretty sure at least one if not both of the rinks were actually NHL regulation size and not Olympic.

EDIT: Hartwall reduced the ice surface to NHL dimensions for the game but its normally an Olympic sized surface. Can't find any info on whether or not Berlin did the same but I assume that would be the case.

Anyway, I don't think the ice surface influenced who dressed in Europe
