SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Syracuse Crunch are hosting a Miracle on Ice Night on Friday, Feb. 14 when the team plays the Utica Comets at 7 p.m.

On Feb. 22, 1980, the United States men's hockey team defeated the four-time defending gold medalists Soviet Union in the medal round at the XIII Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid, New York for one of the largest upsets in Olympic history.

The Crunch will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice game with an appearance by former Team USA defenseman, Olympic gold medalist, Stanley Cup Champion and U.S. Hockey Hall of Famer Ken Morrow. Additionally, the Crunch will wear specialty jerseys that replicate the white jerseys worn by Team USA in the medal round game against the Soviet Union. The jerseys will feature blue shoulders with white stars along with blue and red stripes on the arms and around the bottom of the sweater. Instead of "USA," the jersey will have "SYR" in blue with a red outline diagonally across the chest.

As part of his appearance, Morrow will drop the ceremonial first puck on Feb. 14. The team will also hold a pregame meet-and-greet in the All Who Served Club beginning at 6 p.m. A two pack with access to the pregame meet-and-greet and two tickets to the Crunch game is $100, while a four pack is on sale for $175.
