Unfortunately, that person has now closed his YT account.

Luckily, though, there are still many other 'YouTubers' who have uploaded some great games, like this guy:

Some of his gems:

1975-76 Super series; Boston Bruins vs. CSKA

IMHO the best game of the CSKA versus NHL series. Certainly better than the Philly game. The Soviets often look poor in their own zone (as they still did in the 1970s), but damn, the offense from Mikhailov-Maltsev*-Kharlamov line is sure fun to watch. Tretiak is brilliant, although he lets in an easy one in the 2nd period. Gilles Gilbert in the Boston goal is excellent too for the first 30 minutes or so. All in all, a nice contrast between two different styles of play.
* Maltsev had replaced Vladimir Petrov (injured?) after the Montreal game

1985-86 Super series; Quebec Nordiques vs. CSKA

The only weak game by CSKA during a very succesful tour (wins over the Oilers and the Canadiens by scores of 6-3 and 6-1, respectively). Viktor Tyumenev, instead of Larionov, centered Krutov and Makarov in this series.

USA vs. USSR, 1980, pre-Olympic game

Quite a different story than in Lake Placid, eh? 19-year old Krutov is brilliant.

And from Pavlov33ski (

1968 Winter Olympics (Grenoble)

USSR vs. West Germany

USSR vs. Finland (not the full game)


USSR vs. Sweden

USSR vs. Canada
