“With the win, Ryan Miller moves into second all-time in career Olympic wins with six, just one behind Jack McCartan. #DawnsEarlyLight,” tweeted U.S. Hockey from the governing board’s official Twitter account on Sunday. The team looked solid and so did Miller as he guarded the net well, but he needed the win to make history like he did on Sunday.

The USA Hockey game today was pretty much decided before it began. For the round-robin game, it was Russia who was the toughest opponent. Now that Slovenia is out of the way the USA team is looking at advancing to see who will might be beat on the road to gold.

In the United States the hockey fans got up early and went to bars around America to watch the game on big televisions. There is nothing like supporting Team USA and offering a game early in the morning is a small price to pay for being a fan.
