We remember the game “Miracle on Ice”. And it surely was. During the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, the US hockey team beat the Soviets.
The US Team, made of college players, was considered the biggest underdog in the Finals. At the time, the Soviet team was the four-time defending gold-medal winning team.
But sometimes, miracles happen. And the 1980 Winter Olympics is a wonderful example. Mark Johnson, the leading scorer for the Miracle on Ice team, years later talked about the Olympic experience.
He had a knack for scoring key goals. He scored two against the Soviet Union in the 1980 Finals.
