ESPN 30 for 30 - Of Miracles and Men

08 February 2015 - 11:25 PM

I just finished watching this program on ESPN, and it was very interesting.  It's about the the side of the Miracle on Ice story that we usually don't hear, the Soviet team's story.  They went from the foundation of the Soviet program in Stalin's time, through the aftermath of the 1980 defeat and players eventually coming to the NHL.  There was a particularly long part towards the end about Fetisov trying to be allowed to play in the NHL, and including much commentary from Lou.

 

They're re-airing the program right now on ESPN2 and at some hellish times this week, so fire up the DVRs.
