Need more proof there is no love lost when it comes to Canada and the U.S. in women’s hockey?

A line-clearing brawl broke out in the dying seconds of a pre-Olympics game between the rivals in Grand Forks, N.D., last night - even though fighting is banned in women’s hockey.

It was the fifth pre-Olympic game between the squads leading up to the Sochi Games, with Canada laying claim to three victories. The Americans won last night’s game, 4-1.

The Americans have won the last two games, however, including a 5-1 win which came days after Dan Church stepped down as coach of the Canadian team. He has since been replaced by Kevin Dineen.
