Final Minute of the "Miracle on Ice"

On February 22, 1980, the United States Olympic hockey team pulled off one of the greatest upsets in sports history, defeating the Soviet Union, 4-3.

Back in 2005, ESPN replayed this game and the gold medal game against Finland as part of the 25th anniversary of these Olympics.

Al Michaels and Ken Dryden on the call.
