VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - The United States pulled off its biggest Olympic hockey upset since the Miracle on Ice, stunning Canada 5-3 on Sunday to advance to the quarterfinals of an already mixed-up tournament.
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 - these underrated Americans were faster, more disciplined and more determined than Canada's all-stars.
