Watch a portrait of the U.S. sled hockey team as they prepare for and participate in the Winter Olympic 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.
