'Miracle' players recall Herb Brooks as gruff, great

Friday, 02.07.2014 / 1:24 PM / 2014 Olympics

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Rob McClanahan played for Herb Brooks for seven years -- in college at the University of Minnesota, in the NHL with the New York Rangers and for the United States hockey team that shocked the world and won gold at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics.

And in all that time there was one constant in their relationship: Fear.

"When he passed away there were hundreds of players at his funeral and every one of them would tell you they'd play for him tomorrow. He was a winner and that's what you play sports for," McClanahan said. "But candidly, I was afraid of him.

"But prior to his passing [in a 2003 car accident] we were starting to break down that barrier. He wasn't my coach anymore, he was becoming a friend. We could actually banter back and forth and have a jovial conversation. That part is sad. I wanted more of that relationship. But we can share in his legacy."

Coyotes to honor 10 players from 'Miracle on Ice'

Friday, 02.07.2014 / 12:30 PM / 2014 Olympics

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- All 20 members of the hockey team that provided the greatest sports moment of the 20th century still are, as captain Mike Eruzione put it, "out there alive and kicking."

In the 34 years since the United States men's hockey team performed its "Miracle on Ice" at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics, all 20 have come together exactly two times: Once as part of the 2002 NHL All-Star Game, and one year later for the funeral of their legendary coach, Herb Brooks.

"We had a reception at the White House the day after we won the goal medal. And after lunch, that was it. We headed home," Eruzione said. "We were together every day for six months. We reached our ultimate goal and then it was, 'OK, I'll see ya around.' And after that it's about leading your life. But that bond is always there, and when we see each other it all comes flooding back."

Islanders duo hopes to help Austria pull off an upset

Thursday, 02.06.2014 / 4:40 PM / 2014 Olympics

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- New York Islanders forwards Thomas Vanek and Michael Grabner know the task of helping Austria bring home a medal from the 2014 Sochi Olympics will be as close to impossible as it gets. But that doesn't mean they're not prepared to give it their best shot.

"It's exciting," Vanek said Thursday before the Islanders hosted the Calgary Flames at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. "Anytime you can play and represent your country, especially at this level, it'll be fun. Obviously, we're a big underdog, but that's OK. Hopefully we can surprise a few people."

This will be Austria's first appearance in the Olympics since 2002. They will compete in Group B with Norway, along with projected powerhouses Canada and Finland. Austria will face Finland next Thursday.
