Lake Placid, N.Y., February 22, 1980: U.S. players celebrate what proved to be the winning goal by Mike Eruzione with 10 minutes left in the "Miracle on Ice" game against the Soviet Union at the 1980 Olympics. Not celebrating is Soviet goalie Vladimir Myshkin, who had relieved starter Vladislav Tretiak in a controversial move by coach Viktor Tikhonov after the Americans tied the score at 2-2 in the first period.
