Transcript for Hockey Rivalry Revived
huge, the U.S. Men's hockey team about to go face to face with Russia hoping to pull off another miracle on ice and defeat those Russians on their turf. We're going to go back to Amy robach in sochi with more on this exciting showdown. Amy, are you ready? Reporter: I am so ready. We are planning where we're going to watch this tomorrow. Lara, good morning to you. I actually got to sit down with two of the team's stars. Captain Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Ryan's dad bob was a member of that immortal 1980 squad and Ryan said he used to bring his father's gold medal to school for show and tell. Guess what, now he wants one of his own. Who can ever forget this magical moment? Do you believe in miracles? Yes! Reporter: When the U.S. Beat the mighty soviet squad at the 1980 lake placid olympics. It sent shock waves around the world. No one had given the team made up of scrappy American college kids a chance. They beat Finland to win the gold medal. There was even a movie about the fabled U.S. Team simply titled "Miracle." He shoots. He scores! Reporter: Now get ready for Saturday's showdown in sochi. The U.S. And Russia in an epic rematch. Russia is not quite the superpower its soviet predecessors were but still dominant so when the two teams face off tomorrow, the Americans will once again be underdogs. You don't want teams or people to be talking about you. You want to kind of slide under the radar as far as you can. We raise expectations a little bit in 2010, I think internally for sure but also with media, as well. See, there you are lowering expectations. Yeah, we always put pressure -- you always put pressure on yourself. I mean, that's what athletes do. They want to win. Reporter: But unlike lake placid they're packed with NHL talent and crushed a strong Slovakian team 7-1 Thursday. Score. Reporter: The cold war may be over but the rivalry between these old foes remains hot and captain Zach Parise have tricks up his sleeves. Any pregame Risch walls. Superstitious? I prefer to call them routine. Smaller things. It's coffee. Coffee. Music, bring my dad to lunch. Is he here? Uh-oh. I didn't score last game. So we'll have to fly him over. What music do you listen to. If varies -- I've been on a little bit of a country kick. He scored two goals. I like that country music before you hit the ice. So who will win, you ask? Well, we asked at the sochi aquarium, the dolphin. She says the Russians. Well, odumosusmakers also put the Russians ahead with the Canadians favored to take the gold. You know what, guys, sometimes miracles strike twice. Yep. Right, josh. Yeah, but it wouldn't be -- I get it. I am not going to kill -- it necessarily wouldn't be a miracle but get it done, Americans.
