Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey
Monday, February 24 at 10:00 p.m.
The U.S. sled hockey team as they prepare for the Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
Sled hockey, also known as “murderball on blades,” is played as aggressively as able-bodied hockey — but these players battle with their sticks, sharp sled runners and the serrated ice picks used to propel their sleds. Strapped into molded sleds, they’re often playing at eye level with the fast-moving puck in this game of force, speed and strategy.
