1979 Challenge Cup - USSR vs NHL All-Stars Hockey DVD set
The 1979 Challenge Cup replaced the 1979 NHL All-Star game - event that happened only twice in a history - this time and in 1987 Rendez-Vous. With three players in NHL All-Stars team being non-Canadians, in some way, it was the Series between the Soviet national team and the team of the World. Unlike previous the Summit Series in 1972 and 1974, the Challenge Cup was held in the mid-season when both teams had no excuses for poor pre-season conditioning. It was a face-off between the national team USSR and the best pro players of the world.
This is a DVD set with the all 3 games of the 1979 Challenge Cup played at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Disk 1 - game 1 on February 8, 1979.
NHL stars jumped into the Series with a goal by Lafleur on just 16th second of the this game! They kept the pressure on Soviets the whole time and had a very convincing victory in this action-filled game.

On the verge of loosing the whole Series, USSR team rebounded from a 4-2 deficit and tied the Series.

Absolutely fantastic game! Decisive game of the Series was completely dominated by USSR national team with rookie goalie in the net - Vladimir Myshkin.
