Today in Hockey History - Miracle On Ice

February 22nd 1980
Team USA Men's Hockey had the biggest upset in Olympic and maybe sports history when they defeated the USSR to gain a berth in the gold medal game of the 1980 olympic hockey tournament.

Winning the gold medal game against Finland would catapult the entire team to stardom and the entire team would be named Sports Illustrated's Sportsmen of the Year for 1980.
