The U.S. team faces Russia again in the gold-medal game Saturday for the Paralympic sled hockey title (Channel 4, 9 a.m. live from Sochi). A local sled hockey team is rooting them on.
The L.A. Kings Sled Hockey program, started five years ago by Todd and Christie Jenkins as something their son, Nick, could participate in, has been steadily getting more and more participation as those with disabilities consider whether the sport is something they want to try.
