It seemed like the refs didn't want penalties determining the outcome of the series......however that inadvertently led to Canada getting away with many more blatant fouls than the Soviets.

Likely a case of Team Canada knowing what they could/couldn't get away with in an NHL setting more than the Soviets did.
