SOCHI, Russia - Billy Bridges scored twice and Brad Bowden had a goal and two assists as Canada defeated Norway 3-0 in the bronze-medal game of the sledge hockey tournament.

Corbin Watson stopped 10 shots to get the shutout for Canada, which finished fourth in Vancouver four years ago.

Canada lost Thursday's semifinal to the United States, which was set to take on Russia in the final later Saturday.

The medal is Canada's fourth all-time at the Paralympics; it won gold in 2006 in Torino, Italy, silver in 1998 in Nagano, Japan, and bronze in 1994 in Lillehammer, Norway, in addition to this year's third-place finish.
