Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Three decades ago, Jim Craig backstopped Team USA to an improbable come-from-behind win against the Soviet Union and an Olympic gold medal.

This weekend, Craig was in Duluth as part of the first-ever "Docs versus Jocks" event, put on by Essentia Health to help combat heart disease.

Zach Schneider caught up with Craig to talk about the event, and also about the coach of that 1980 team, Minnesota native Herb Brooks.
