Think of it as a "greatest hits" of the series. The writers have patched together all of the best vignettes and anecdotes from the now voluminous sources and reminiscences on the series, so that you get all of the interesting stuff in one mini-series.
For the old time hockey fan, its time well wasted.
But, the greatest liberty, indeed, a downright fabrication, is the end. I will spoil it because its simply not true. The movie ends with the Canadian players returning to the ice in a darkened and empty Luzhiniki Sports Palace, to have a silent and contemplative final beer. Nothing of the sort happened. From my reading, the best I can tell is that Gary Bergman alone did that, right after the game, pausing to (as he said) take in that "old barn" one last time. The other players were chugging beers in the dressing room!
