54 Years and Counting...

In 1956, the United States Olympic Hockey Team captured the silver medal in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy at the VII Olympic Winter Games.

A little known fact in U.S. Olympic Hockey history (Men's competition) is that since then only one team has captured an Olympic medal in ice hockey on foreign soil since - the 1972 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team in Sapporo, Japan. Another fact worth noting, since '56 only four U.S. teams have managed to stand on the medal podium:

1960 - Gold, Squaw Valley, USA
1972 - Silver, Sapparo, Japan
1980 - Gold, Lake Placid, USA
2002 - Silver, Salt Lake City, USA

Can Team USA break the cycle in Vancouver?
