A New Year's Eve Classic

December 31, 1975
The Montreal Canadiens battle the Central Red Army to a 3-3 tie despite outshooting the Soviets 38-13. The hero of the night was goaltending great Vladislav Tretiak. Without Tretiak in net, the rest of the league was no match for the mighty Canadiens. They went on to win the first of four straight Stanley Cups that season.
Montreal Canadiens vs Central Red Army
Quotable:
"They were completely outclassed from start to finish except on the scoreboard and in the nets."
- Montreal coach Scotty Bowman
