Montreal vs Spartak

Does anyone have any information (box score, highlights) of this game that took place at The Forum on January 6, 1978? Any posters attend this game?

All I can remember off the top of my head is the famous Red Army game that ended in a 3-3 tie that Montreal dominated and would have been 10-3 if not for Tretiak.

couldn't find much on the game with Spartak other than the Habs won 5-2.

Comments from the Spartak coach on page 23. Pashkov the Spartak goalie kept it close in the first period until the team got over the yips. Still the team never challenged the Canadiens.

A russian forum I discovered while doing some research for the following thread: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...d.php?t=981079. Ironically I stopped with the year 1977 and have not resumed that project so far.

I remember watching the game...but it was 35 years ago. The Habs far better team. Remember the announcers saying Montreal just too strong a club for the Russian club.

Could you perhaps provide a link to that forum becouse if more or even complete stats are available from the Super Series that would be gold when researching soviet players. The stats might be available on that hockey research societys database whatever they are called, but they want you to pay for a membership wich is BS.

Pretty much everything is available on the site. Including Soviet League game by game scores, rosters etc. I have basically spent the last year or so examining the depths of that forum. Not everything is complete though, it's work in progess.

Pretty sure I remember watching this game in TV and being surprised how easy it was to beat the Russians. Didn't realize till years later it was a B Squad.

Wasn't there another one a year or two later where Bunny played the whole game and beat the Red Army? Or am I mixing it up with this game?

The same could be said of most NHL teams at that time, since Montreal dominated the NHL from 1975-76 to 1979-80. Spartak was an 8th place team reinforced by a few non-national team members from Krylya Sovetova. It seems as though Spartak acquitted itself pretty well, given the strength of the opposition.

A few? 4 defencemen and 6 forwards, most of them on "Moscow Selects" = second National Team level. It wasn't Spartak, it basically the best of Krylja (3rd place) + the best of Spartak (7th place). With that roster they easily would have been the best team in the Soviet league outside of CSKA and probably Dinamo that year. You are right that there is no shame in losing against the mighty Canadiens, but "8th place team" is misleading.

The difference between the 1st (CSKA) and 3rd place teams in the Soviet Championship League was huge, but the difference between the 3rd and 8th place teams was negligible. This is different from the NHL, where the 3rd place team in the Stanley Cup is often nearly as good as the winner. 3rd, 4th and 5th place teams and below in the Soviet Champions League were not good enough to be competitive with the better NHL teams, although Krylya, augmented with players from Gorky Torpedo and Dynamo Riga, did win a series 2-1-1 against some good NHL teams in 1978-79. They would have beaten the Flyers in the Forum if not for a last-minute goal by Clarke. Even though Krylya picked up the only decent players on the Gorky team, mainly the Varnakov-Skvortsov-Kovin line, being augmented by Gorky Torpedo hardly merits an asterisk on the series. Since there was nothing to gain from winning, the Soviets weren't as concerned about beating the NHL as they were of getting national team candidates an opportunity to play time against that level of competition.
