Backes played a supporting role on the U.S. team in 2010. Now, he’s a leader. The powerful swings of emotion in that championship game four years ago remain “vivid” to this day.

“There’s scorn and there’s a little spite afterward,” he said. “In retrospect months later, you put it in perspective and say, ‘Hey, I got a silver medal and we were part of an amazing team that played in one of the best hockey games ever played.’ ”

That game will be tough to duplicate. They’re not playing for gold this time. But it’s U.S.-Canada in the Olympic tournament. That alone makes it a special occasion.
