I was refereeing in the WCHA at the time. Fourteen of the twenty players on the team were from the WCHA, most from Minnesota, plus the trainer, equipment manager, Dr. and Herb Brooks.

I was reffing a game in Denver when the game was being played and when they announced the final score of the US-Soviet game, a big roar went up.

Bob Johnson, who was coaching the University of Wisconsin at that time, was in Colorado Springs for a weekend series with Colorado College. One of the referees in that series convinced him to miss the Saturday night game and go to Lake Placid for the Sunday gold medal game, US-Finland. Johnson was there to see his son Mark win a gold medal.
