Kevin Dineen learned quickly what the U.S. women's hockey team is all about ahead of the Sochi Winter Games.
In his debut as Canada's women's team head coach, Dineen watched his club drop a 4-1 decision Friday to the Americans in exhibition action.
"Tremendous amount of respect for that opponent, that's an exceptional team there," said Dineen about his first taste of the U.S program....
Eventually, emotions took over and with the game out of reach. Tempers flared in the final minute as 12 players -- six from each club -- were handed penalties with just eight seconds remaining in the contest after a 10-player altercation unfolded in front of the American net.
