40th Anniversary Of The Miracle On Ice

Miracle On Ice

On February 22, 1980, the U.S. hockey team beat the Soviet Union 4-3 in one of the biggest upsets in sports history in Lake Placid, NY.

In the final seconds of the game, sportscaster Al Michaels shouted, "Do you believe in miracles...YES!" The game infamously became known as the "Miracle on Ice."

Team USA went on to win the gold medal by defeating Finland 4-2 in the gold medal game.
