SOCHI, Russia — It’s 2-0 for Graeme Murray and the Canadian sledge hockey team at the Paralympics as they advance to the semifinals.

A day after routing the Swedes 10-1, the Canadians earned some redemption by beating Norway 4-0 Sunday.

The two teams met in the bronze medal game four years ago in Vancouver, where Canada lost.

This time with Adam Dixon notching a pair and singles by Marc Dorian and Dominic Laroque and Corbin Watson getting the shut out, Canada sits atop their group A with six points in preliminary round play.

Their next game is Monday (11 a.m. ET webcast on CBC) against the Czechs.
