Team USA Shocks Canadians in a Huge Upset Over Team Canada

ESPN called it the "biggest upset in Olympic hockey since Miracle on Ice." NHL.com called it an "American Beauty." In a shocking upset over the Canadian National Team on Sunday night, Team USA pulled off a 5-3 victory on Canadian soil, their first victory over Canada since 1960. Ironically, Team USA was wearing throwback jerseys from 1960, the NHL said.
ESPN said that Brian Rafalski had two goals, Chris Drury had one goal, and Jamie Langenbrunner had one as well. The star of the game, however, was undoubtedly Team USA goalie Ryan Miller, who is perhaps the NHL's best goaltender this season, the NHL said. ESPN reported Miller made a whopping 42 saves, in "the victory of a lifetime." Team Canada was expected to coast through to the medal round, but was nearly beat by Switzerland and clearly out-played by Team USA Sunday night. They could still win a gold medal, but they must win on Tuesday and have a difficult journey ahead. Team USA is undefeated.
