I am playing in an Armed Services Hockey Association tournament this weekend hosted by the team I play on. we played 2 games today and split with one tough loss in a game in which we outshot the opponent by something like a 2-1 margin. We followed that up with a great comeback and win in OT against a team that had beat us 14-4 just a few weeks ago. We now need to win the 9:00 am game tomorrow to make it to the championship game.

One of the teams in the tournament is comprised of all war wounded vets. We do not play them because they are in a lower division but I spent a bit of time watching these guys and they are pretty damn impressive. They have one guy playing with one arm, another with both legs gone above the knee skating on prosthetics. It was pretty impressive to see how these guys have overcome there injuries and play hockey. You can check them out, as well as some pictures of them playing in the tournament today, on facebook.
