I know, they were the bad guys, but they did play some beautiful hockey. They were as good as Canada in every year in the 70s and 80s. Just deal with it.
You must be new here. Both sides throw out excuses to explain away their losses.

On topic, it was close in the Soviet era with Canada having the slight edge in victories (1972, 1984, and 1987) to USSR (1981). In the Canada-Russia era it has been one-sided in Canada's favor (1991, 2002, 2004, and 2010).
