Miracle On Ice

Nearly 40 years to the day after the U.S. men’s hockey team stunned Russia at the 1980 Winter Olympics, the Princeton High boys’ hockey team celebrates after it pulled off a miracle of its own in the Mercer County Tournament final last Friday. Trailing six-time defending champion Hun 5-0 in the second period and 5-2 with 3:57 left in the third period, PHS scored four goals in the next 2:26 to take the lead and then added an empty net tally to put the finishing touch on a shocking 7-5 victory.
