Another U.S. thriller: Win over Canada
Brian Rafalski scored two goals and set up another, and Ryan Miller held off a flurry of shots to lead the Americans.
One day short of the 30th anniversary of America's greatest hockey victory - the unfathomable win over the Soviet Union in Lake Placid, N.Y. - these underrated Americans were faster, more disciplined and more determined than Canada's all-stars.
Canada outshot the U.S. 45-22 yet couldn't badly dent Miller, the goalie the Americans believed could best stand up to all of Canada's might. He made 42 saves in the victory of a lifetime.
