Miracle Day

Thirty-seven years later, Feb. 22 remains a red-letter day on the hockey calendar, as fans recall Team USA’s totally improbable upset of the Soviet Union in the 1980 Olympic semifinal. Four Terriers played key roles with goalie Jim Craig playing the game of his life, Mike Eruzione scoring the game-winner, and big contributions from Jack O’Callahan and David Silk.

Everyone who follows hockey in North America knows the story but  here are a few links to help you relive what was arguably the greatest hockey game ever played on a U.S. rink.

Trivia question: Who played the role of Jim Craig in the made-for-TV movie, “Miracle on Ice,” and who played him in the theatrical production, “Miracle.”
