Coaching U.S. women, Johnson needs no miracle
Few fans of Olympic hockey will forget Mark Johnson, who scored two goals in the United States' "Miracle on Ice" victory over the Soviet Union during the Lake Placid Games in 1980.
Johnson is back in the Olympics again this month, albeit in a much different role: coach of the U.S. women's team.
"I'm just real thankful that I've got this opportunity," Johnson told the Associated Press. "It's not too often that you get to play in an Olympics, and then 30 years later you get to go back."
