United States Olympic Hockey Team
The U.S. men’s hockey team will face Canada again on Sunday — only this time it’s for the gold.
The game, which NBC will broadcast live Sunday at 3:15 p.m. Eastern/12:15 p.m. Pacific, takes place 50 years after the U.S. won the gold at the Squaw Valley Winter Olympics over — you guessed it — Canada, and 20 years after the “Miracle on Ice,” when the Americans bested the U.S.S.R. in Lake Placid. The Canadian team has taken home the gold seven times, most recently in 2002.
Olympic moment: U.S. hockey teams nabs first Olympic win over Canada in 50 years
The U.S. team beat the Canadians 5-3 last week. But the Canadians have the hometown advantage and their legacy in the sport can’t be overlooked.
Are you psyched for the big game? Will there be another “Miracle on Ice”?
