To draw too much out of these results would be misleading IMO.
Eh, it was the same for both we understand. But were these really seen as real exhibitions by the two sides? I remember CSKA coming into Madison Square Garden to a not too friendly crowd. They beat the Rangers 7-3 i believe.

But back to the soviet teams. CSKA was all too stacked to be a good matchup against one of the many NHL teams, and the other in the list was also top teams in their league going up against sometimes bottom NHL-teams. This is why someone should make a list of the meetings where top NHL-teams was participating.
