Isnt that fascinating. Behind closed doors. We forget sometimes how important sports supremacy on the ice, field, track or pitch was during the Cold War. That event highly illustrative of the lengths to which the Soviets were willing to go, fully & totally committed to the game of hockey as they were. Its scary-admirable is what that is.... and I'd asked earlier about equipment in the early years, through the 50's & into the 60's. Looks like the Russians did indeed have domestic manufacturers, sticks, skates, gloves etc.
