WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah - To heck with history, politics and miracles. For the U.S. Olympic men's hockey team, this one was about survival. After jumping out to a three-goal lead yesterday against Russia in the semifinals, the United States did all it could to simply hang on. Team USA fought and clawed through a hectic third period, proving it had enough character to take a punch and stay standing, then hanging on for an emotional 3-2 victory. The Americans will take on Canada tomorrow in the gold-medal game and are assured of winning their first Olympic medal in men's hockey in 22 years.
