Sample text

And they were at home. I think it’s different now. I think kids are more worldly than we were. Most of us had never been to Europe. None of us had been to Eastern Europe. And what we knew about the Soviet Union we learned from the movies: spies lurking around the corners, soldiers in the streets, people living in fear of the gulag. Were we scared when we took on the Soviets in Leningrad in ‘83? On the ice, I’d say no. Were we comfortable? Not even close. We’d won our first three games at the tournament, beating West Germany, the United States, and Finland pretty comfortably, and went into our round-robin game against the Soviets looking at it as the contest that would decide the gold medal.

The quick shot beat Hasek, triggering a furious final six minutes and 13 seconds during which Czechoslovakia blitzed Canadian goalie Craig Billington, looking for the winning goal that separated them from their first-ever gold medal. It never came. “Hasek was really good,” Creighton said. ” After the Canadians survived a faceoff and frenzied attack over the final 20 seconds of the game, they knew they had won the gold medal, and celebrated accordingly—but it wasn’t absolutely official. There was still a night game between the Soviet Union and Finland, and if the Finns won by eight or more goals they could finish first.

Mike Moller (left) and his teammates stayed out of the penalty box but didn’t totally sacrifice physical play en route to the gold medal. beat the Soviets 7–0 in Winnipeg in front of a crowd that was just going crazy. It was an amazing atmosphere. I can’t say the same about the scene when we went to Rochester, Minnesota, for our game against Czechoslovakia, the last game in the round robin. We were playing in this little arena that sat about 3,000 and probably wasn’t half-filled. In Winnipeg, on home ice, it felt like we were involved in something historic.
