It would have been quite an upset if Finland had beaten the US, after the Americans beat the Czechoslovaks and Soviets. The Finns at the time were considered only a little better than West Germany and a fourth place for them was considered pretty good.

I think if the US had beaten the Soviets but only won the silver in the end, the team would still likely be remembered more than the 1960 and 1972 US olympic teams, because of the increased press coverage at the time, but not as much as they are.
