Team USA were HUGE underdogs. Sure, they beat Canada but everyone felt like the win over Canada was a fluke and that without the element of surprise that Canada was going to blow them right out of the building. Not to mention that Canada had the advantage of playing on home ice in front of a mostly Canadian crowd. The only way you could have stacked the deck any more against the Americans would be if you made them play without sticks and without a goalie.
If you had told anyone that the USA was going to go down 0-2 early and then come back to tie up the game, they would have laughed at you.
No one gave team USA any chance to win, much less did they think USA would give Canada all they could handle.
The Amercians were major overachievers, which is due in large part to the play of Miller.
