Nice little documentary on Czech(oslovak) hockey on YouTube, concentrating on their bitter rivalry against Soviet Union, and including footage, for example, from the 1969, 1972, 1977, 1978 and 1985 World Championships, and reminiscences from players like Jiri Holecek, Ivan Hlinka, Vladimir Martinec, Frantisek Pospisil, Jiri and Jaroslav Holik etc. (everybody understands Czech, right? ).

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

Cool to see some clips I hadn't seen before, like the goals from the deciding game versus USSR in the 1972 WC (part 2).

I don't quite understand, why they basically jump straight from 1972 to 1978, without having much time for the 1976 and 1977 WCs (when they won gold), and rather concentrating on the loss to USSR in 1978 (silver medal). Just because 1972 and 1978 WCs were held in Prague?
