People really need to watch the 3rd game of the 1979 Challenge Cup again. Myshkin did NOT have to do anything special; yes, he shut out the NHL All-Stars, which sounds very impressive, but Team NHL had about 2 or 3 real scoring chances in the game.
A good goalie nevertheless!
This is what Myshkin himself said after the 1979 Challenge Cup game:
When Tikhonov told me I was going to play at the morning practice (before the final game) I was very excited. But, I think the NHL didn't shoot as much as I expected and they were not too accurate. I just tried to stop the puck when it came near the goal - and I didn't realize the crowd was yelling for me.
