Olympic hockey history: U.S. vs. Russia
Game No. 7 occurs Saturday morning in a preliminary contest
at the Sochi Games. It should be a good one again.
Since the U.S.' stunning upset of the then-Soviet Union, 4-3, en route to winning the gold medal, whenever the two countries face off on the frozen pond, it's must-watch.
Here's a breakdown of Olympic hockey results between the two countries since 1980:

1988 at Calgary, Canada: Soviet Union 7, U.S. 2 (preliminary round)
1992 at Albertville, France: Unified Team 5, U.S. 2
2002 at Salt Lake City: U.S. 2, Russia 2 (preliminary round), U.S. 3, Russia 2 (semifinal)
2006 at Turin, Italy: Russia 5, U.S. 4 (preliminary round)
