Fans at the HarborCenter had a lot to cheer about on May 3rd as the U.S. Sled Hockey Team took gold on home ice for the first time at the IPC Ice Sledge Hockey World Championship. The red, white and blue were in a tight scoreless contest with Team Canada until the third period. Team USA netted two goals less than five minutes apart, including an assist by Buffalo’s own Adam Page, to go up 2-0 and with 22 seconds left on the clock,an empty netter gave goalie Steven Cash the 3-0 shutout. It was an impressive follow-up to Team USA’s last major tournament where they took gold at the Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi.
