The true story of Herb Brooks, the player-turned-coach who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team to victory over the seemingly invincible Soviet squad.
Defenseman Bob Suter passed away from a heart attack on September 9, 2014 at the Capitol Ice Arena in Middleton, Wisconsin, a suburb of his hometown of Madison. He is the first and as of 2016 the only one of the team players to have passed away. The arena was renamed Bob Suter's Capitol Ice Arena in his honor.
Jim Craig: Hey, Coach.
Herb Brooks: Just wondering why you didn't take this test.
Jim Craig: Yeah, umm... it's nothing against you or anything. I just don't see what it has to do with stopping the puck.
Herb Brooks: That's okay, you just took it anyway.
Just before the start of the game against the Soviets in Madison Square Garden, goalie Jim Craig is shown lowering his mask onto his face twice after the team huddle in front of the American net.
