The coach of Team U-S-A says his hockey squad doesn't need a miracle at the 2018 Winter Olympics. 

Coach Tony Granato of the University of Wisconsin Badgers says they just need to play their best.  Team U-S-A opens its Olympic schedule with a Wednesday game against Slovenia.  The Americans aren't given much chance to medal because the roster includes no N-H-L players this time.  Granato's players are from the college ranks, the American Hockey League and Americans playing professionally in Europe.
