What is the difference between street hockey sticks and ice hockey sticks?

Sticks used in ice hockey are subjected to much more stress than street hockey sticks, and the quality of the stick shaft and blade can make a difference. An ABS blade on a street hockey stick would not work for ice hockey because of the weight of the puck and the speed at which a puck moves on the ice.

Simply so, can you use ice hockey sticks for street hockey?

Ice hockey sticks can be used for street hockey but must first be taped or you can use a wrap around to protect the blade from the road. You can use the same gloves, helmet, knee-pads, and elbow-pads for inline and ice hockey. Ice hockey requires more padding than street hockey due to body checking.

Subsequently, question is, should you tape street hockey stick? Use Tape - If you don't mind the feel of tape on your ball hockey stick then use it! That said I don't like it, but it will really help protect the blade. Perhaps consider covering the toe (to protect from chips) or taping any surface cracks.
