A Badger stuns Canada in USA win

One day short of the 30th anniversary of the country’s greatest hockey triumph — the unfathomable win over the Soviet Union in Lake Placid — these underrated Americans were faster, more disciplined and more determined than Canada’s collection of all-stars.
Better, too.

Wearing replica sweaters as a tribute to the 1960 team that had been the only one to beat Canada in Olympic men’s hockey, the Americans stunned their neighbors to the north 5-3 Sunday night before a partisan crowd at Canada Hockey Place.

“We know we can beat anybody now,” said U.S. defenseman Brian Rafalski, a former University of Wisconsin athlete who had two goals and an assist.
