U.S. Sled Hockey to Face Canada in Semifinals

The U.S. Sled Hockey Team will square off against Canada in the semifinals of the Paralympic Winter Games on Thursday. The game can be watched live at 11 a.m. CT on the NBC Sports Network.
 
The team features three players from the Rampage Sled Hockey Team who are competing for the Red, White and Blue in Rico Roman, Jen Lee and Josh Sweeney, who is also serving as an alternate captain for Team USA.
 
While the U.S. and Canada are very familiar opponents, the teams are meeting in the Paralympics for the first time since 2002 and the third time overall. They last faced one another on Jan. 10 and 11 as part of a three-game series in North Carolina – the U.S. won both matchups by a score of 2-1 and 3-1, respectively. 
 
Team USA finished 2-1 in the preliminary round, beating Italy 5-1 in the opening game. All five goals were scored by first-time Paralympians, including one off the stick of Sweeney. The U.S. topped South Korea 3-0 in the second game, but fell to Russia 2-1 on Tuesday to finish in second place in Group B and set up the semifinal tilt with Canada.
 
Team USA is looking to defend its gold medal at the Paralympic Winter Games in 2010. The Red, White and Blue have captured goal twice at the Paralympics, finishing in the top spot in 2002. The team won bronze in Torino in 2006.
 
Fans can watch the semifinals live on NBCSN. The bronze and gold medal games will be played on Saturday with the bronze medal game at 4 a.m. CT and the gold medal game at 11 a.m.. It will air at 12 p.m. CT on NBC.
