Gold-medal full game| Ice sledge hockey | Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games

Josh Sweeney's second period goal was the difference maker on Saturday (15 March), as the USA repeated as Paralympic champions in ice sledge hockey after a 1-0 gold medal victory over Russia at the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games.

With the win, the USA become the first-ever nation to win back-to-back Paralympic gold medals.

We have worked hard all year and this is a great group of guys. We're pretty excited and so we should be, USA captain Andy Yohe said.

After a fast-paced first period that saw lots of great chances at both ends of the ice, the teams were scoreless after 15 minutes.

The fast-paced game would continue in the second period with the USA dominating the flow of play. Finally, almost 10 minutes into the period, Sweeney, playing in his first Paralympic Winter Games, would steal the puck from Russia's Aleksei Lysov at the hashmarks and beat goaltender Vladimir Kamantcev.

That would be all the offence the USA needed to repeat their success from Vancouver 2010 and win their third gold medal in four Games.

With one goal, Sweeney turned from a war hero to a Paralympic hero. In 2009, Sweeny stepped on an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan as a member of the US Marine Corps, losing both of his legs.

In 2014, he led a Paralympic gold-medal winning team as an assistant captain.

I saw the defender, and he had the puck and I just went after him and I got the puck from him and took it down and did a little fake because that's what you want to do when you're going up against a goalie that good and just put it in the net, Sweeney said of his goal.

It wasn't anything that any of my other teammates couldn't have done, I just did it.

For Russia, the loss came after a rise in the sport over the last five years when the team first began training for their Paralympic debut. Since then, they have become the second best team in the world.

I'm not disappointed at all, Kamantcev said. We played well. It's a dignified finish for Russia and for ourselves. We showed a good game, a battle, intellect, will and character.

USA goaltender Steve Cash was brilliant when needed once again in net for his team, making six saves for the shutout, his second straight and third in the tournament.

Cash finished Sochi 2014 as the top goaltender, with a 4-1 record 0.41 goals against average and 95.56 save percentage.

His counterpart in the game, Kamantcev finished the tournament as Russia's No. 1 goaltender and was a standout performer in net. In the gold medal game he made three saves on four shots but finished the tournament behind Cash with a 95.24 save percentage.

An inside look at the world of sled hockey

FOX Sports Florida's Frank Forte looks at how sled hockey offers athletes with disabilities an opportunity to embrace their competitive nature.

SLEDGE HOCKEY DRILLS AND SKILLS | SLED SETUP

So, I did the best I could with having a Rev Force 1 sled on hand. There are many other models of sleds available at to help you, and depending on your disability there’s a lot to consider in sled setup. But with these two sleds as an example, here are the main things you should focus on when trying to dial in your sled.

1. Proper length (Knees should generally be bent around 30 degrees (or 150 depending on how you look at it)
2. Proper height (So your knuckles just scrape above the ice surface)
3. Blade positioning, front to back (Finding the balance point of your sled so your nose is off the ice)
4. Bucket angle (Depending on your disability and what’s comfortable for you)

I touch on stick length as well which is really important. Most players have sticks that are too long vs sticks that are too short.

Sticks that are too long means:
1. You’re ending your stride early and/or you’ll be choking up on your sticks a lot (Hands not at the top of the blades)
2. Proper length (Knees should generally be bent around 30 degrees (or 150 depending on how you look at it)
3. You’ll have to put more effort into your shot because of the long leverage point

Sticks that are too short means:
1. You end your stride too soon, not achieving a full stride and making you pick a lot more
2. You’ll have great acceleration but lack a better top speed
3. You’ll probably raise the puck easier and have a harder shot, but lack an overall ability to be more creative and pick corners, shoot from distances farther away, etc… plus it will affect your reach in battling in corners, stick handling, and how much more you can do with passing.

As things progress I’d love to do at least a few more of these videos on sled setup because there’s a lot of players out there that need help with this. If you have a specific question about your setup please leave me a comment and include a photo of you in your sled so I can see what you look like. I’ll do my best to help as many people as I can.

Hope you enjoy!

SLEDGE HOCKEY DRILLS AND SKILLS | STICK HANDLING DRILLS

Learning how to carry the puck forward in sledge hockey is hard to begin, but once you get the hang of that you will want to start experimenting with turns and controlling the puck in other ways.

This video shows you a few things to think about when learning how to carry the puck around the faceoff circles as a great starting point for puck control.

TIP: This drill and all advanced drills will always be easier the narrower your blades are. Narrow blades allow you to get onto your edge or one blade easier. You can still perform this drill with a wider blade width, but it will be challenging!
