Media Coverage[edit | edit source]

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation had extensive coverage of the tournament by radio, including live play-by-play of the Canada-Soviet game.

In an era before satellites, live television coverage in Canada was impossible. The Soviet-Canada game was on a tape delay.
