Transcript of Soviet Union Olympic Hockey Presentation

Soviet Union Olympic
Ice Hockey Team (1964-1980)
By C4C Crosby Shaver
Building a Legacy
The USSR entered the 1980 Lake Placid games having won the previous four ice hockey gold medals (starting in 1964)
In these four Olympics the Soviets had gone 27–1–1 and outscored the opposition 175–44.
Soviet club teams went 5–3–1 against NHL teams.
Soviet national team had routed the NHL All-Stars 6–0 to win the Challenge Cup.
USSR beat USA, 10-3, in an exhibition game at Madison Square Garden just days before the Olympics
The Team
Some were active-duty military in the Red Army.
Had few military responsibilities; the government allowed them to devote their lives to hockey, while retaining their amateur status.
Played and practiced with world class training facilities in a very a well-developed hockey league.
Their prominent players included:
Right winger and team captain Boris Mikhailov
The best goaltender in the world at the time Vladislav Tretiak
Valeri Kharlamov
Defenseman Viacheslav Fetisov
Forwards Vladimir Krutov and Sergei Makarov.
Following the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" Tikhonov singled out first-line players Tretiak, Kharlamov, Petrov, and Mikhailov, and told each of them, "This is your loss!"
Two days after the Soviet team crushed Sweden 9–2, winning the silver medal.
The Soviet players did not turn in their silver medals to get their names inscribed on them.
USSR remained the pre-eminent power in Olympic hockey until its 1991 break-up.
Did not lose a World Championship game until 1985 and did not lose to the United States again until 1991.
Soviet Aftermath
Early 1-0 lead in the first period with a goal by Vladimir Krutov, from a deflected a slap shot by Aleksei Kasatonov.
After Buzz Schneider scored for USA, Sergei Makarov responded with another goal for USSR making the score 2-1.
Dave Christian scored another goal for USA with one second left in the first period making it 2-2.
Tikhonov replaced Tretiak with backup goaltender Vladimir Myshkin immediately after Johnson's tying goal which was highly controversial.
The "Miracle on Ice"
First Period
Second Period
Soviets dominated play in the second period.
They out shot team USA 12–2.
USSR scored once:
Power play goal by Aleksandr Maltsev.
After two periods the Soviet Union led 3–2.
Third Period
Mark Johnson scored on a power play, tying the game at 3.
A few shifts later Mark Pavelich passed to Eruzione, who was left undefended in the high slot.
Eruzione fired a shot past Myshkin, who was screened by Vasili Pervukhin.
This goal gave Team USA a 4–3 lead with exactly 10 minutes left.
The Soviets never pulled Myshkin for an extra attacker.
Starikov later explained that "We never did six-on-five", not even in practice, because "Tikhonov just didn't believe in it."
