Podcast: Mike Miccoli

It was a little nerve-racking to see Team USA tied 0-0 with Slovakia through the first 14:27 of the game on Thursday and it was even more nerve-racking when Slovakia scored to start the second period and tie the game at 1. But after thinking we might be in for a repeat of the 2006 Turin Olympics, Team USA scored six goals in the second period and started off the 2014 Olympics in the best possible way.

Mike Miccoli of The Hockey Writers and New England Hockey Journal joined me to talk about Team USA’s dominant win over Slovakia, rooting for players in the Olympics you don’t usually root for and if Team USA is good enough to win the gold.
