Super Series 1976 - CSKA (Red Army) vs Philadelphia Flyers Hockey DVD
Summit Series 1972 and 1974 have started the greatest tradition in international hockey of last century - the best players of North American clubs versus the best of Soviet players!
Starting in 1975-1976 the format of the series has been slightly changed and since then this exciting competition was played on a club level. Also, the series were renamed to Super Series.
At the end of 1975 two Soviet clubs (Red Army and Wings of Soviets) went to match up against NHL clubs and played 4 games each in Super Series 1976.
This is a DVD disk with hockey game between the CSKA (aka Soviet Red Army) and the Philadelphia Flyers played on January 11th, 1976 in Philadelphia.
This game is well-known because of rare incident - outraged by terrible non-calls by the officials on Flyers' rough tactics and concerned about possible injuries to Soviet players with Olympics coming in a month (and they actually won the Gold at that 1976 Olympics), the Soviet team leaves the ice! But only to come back in few minutes and get scored against on delay-of-the-game penalty they got before leaving the ice.
Even with this incident in the way, this game was the most exciting and anticipated one in Series as Philadelphia Flyers, lead by Bobby Clark, were a very strong team, capturing Stanley Cup previous season. This game was the last one for CSKA in Super Series 1976, which they finished with 2W-1L-1T record.
Players introductions, all 3 periods minus intermissions and commercials are included on this DVD.
DVD has fully featured menu with chapters, disk has a nice label and comes in a DVD case with insert. This disk is in NTSC format and region free.
