    Another in the series of games where the Soviet National Team played the Junior Canadiens. The Junior Canadiens were a year older. Jacques Plante replaced Gump Worsley. Noel Picard and Jean Gauthier replaced John Hanna and Doug Harvey on defence while Andre Boudrias, Bill Inglis and Norm Dennis were the forwards replacing Red Berenson, Bill Sutherland and Leon Rochefort.

    Interesting quote from Ragulin in the second article. Playing 7 games in 13 days. Similar to today's NHL schedule. O6 teams regularly played 3 games in 4 days or 3 in 5, against NHL teams not junior or semi pro opposition.
