The USA hockey team beats favored Canadian team

The USA hockey team beat Canada 5-3 and improved to 3-0 in the preliminary Olympic round for the first time since 1960, Sports Illustrated reported.

The game took place on the day before the 30th aniversary of the "Miracle on Ice" victory over the USSR in 1980, and just as back then, the US team entered the game as large underdogs, The Washington Post reported.

There was plenty of history represented already going into the game, as the US team donned jerseys with the design of the 1960 gold medal team, The Los Angeles Times reported. Also a member of the US team was the son of one of the players on the "Miracle on Ice" team.
