The sport of ice sledge hockey is much like its able-bodied counterpart. Instead of skates however, players use double bladed sledges to move around the ice.  The action is no less fast and furious though.

Today is the final day of group play in the Paralympic tournament. TeamUSA.org will provide live streaming coverage of games including the United States against host Russia beginning at 8:30 am.
