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.

SLEDGE HOCKEY DRILLS AND SKILLS | HOW TO TURN

This is the beginning of a series of videos where I focus primarily on the fundamental basics of getting into the sport. Many of you may already be above these drills, but I wanted to get some content out there for people who know nothing about the sport.

The first video here is talking about turning with different blade widths. It’s very hard to learn how to turn and get onto your edge of your blades with 5” wide blades. Even on 3” it can be hard.

Here are a couple techniques and areas you can focus on:

- Find your proper set up. Adjust your sled for the proper length, and adjust your blade position so your sled is balanced properly with the front end hovering above the ice. You don’t want it to be dragging when you skate.
- Think about your hand placement on your sticks. If using your stick as a pivot point, you’re holding further to the top. If you’re dragging your sticks to turn helps, keep your hands low.
- Keep picking with your outside hand when turning. This will help you turn and keep your momentum up.
- Find the “happy medium” in your blade width. Where is it too wide that you can’t turn? How narrow can you go before you lose your balance and control of your sled?

Any feedback or ideas for future videos, please leave in the comments below!

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 | HOW TO GET UP

When you begin playing sledge hockey you’re going to fall over. Picking yourself back up will be difficult, but that’s part of the process of learning how to play, and also is a great metaphor for building resilience in life.

You have to keep picking yourself up when you fall.

In sledge, it’s pretty basic. Just learn a few tips and keep working on developing your strength. Think about these key points.

- Prop up your body onto your fist/hand to begin and keep your hand in close to your body
- Get yourself onto one blade
- You can use your other stick as a pole to help balance and leverage yourself
- When you push to get back up, focus on lifting your bum up in the process if you can. This will help get your blades back under you.
- Push hard enough to get up, but not so much that you tip back over to the other side, and you’re done!

When you do this on 5” wide blades it’s going to be difficult because you’ll have to fight against the wide base, but as you can imagine, the narrow you get the easier it will be. Keep practicing at it until it becomes a natural reaction when you fall.

Good luck!

SLEDGE HOCKEY DRILLS AND SKILLS | HOW TO RECEIVE PASSES

I titled this video ‘receiving passes’ though it’s equally about giving a good pass.

How many times have you been given a pass that was too far behind you or it hits your blades? This is to help get you thinking about where to hit your teammates while they’re moving.

When giving a pass to a player with one or two legs, do not aim for the players hips. Instead be sure to aim in front of them. Ideally, roughly from about the area of their knees to the front of their sled.

Depending on how much speed your teammate has, you may want to give them a harder pass, and even lead the puck a bit farther in front.
Remember to put your stick out for a target as early as possible. You don’t have to wait to get your stick down. You can put your stick out before you even see the pass coming, just to help your teammate out with a target to pass to.

If you’re trying to hit a teammate who’s a double amputee… the same idea applies though you are focusing more on just a short distance in front of their torso since they don’t have legs to work with. The nose of the sled is always a safe option.

The main point from this video is by learning where the proper area is to receive a pass, the better you can become to hit your own teammates with a pass.
