Line Brawl In Canada/USA Women’s Hockey Exhibition Game

from the CP at TSN,

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.

In total, 10 fighting majors and a string of other infractions were dealt. The two teams also fought in October late in a game in Burlington, Vt., with all 10 skaters squaring off late in the third period. They had another big scrap in 2010.

There’s such fierce competition between these teams! Due to the lack of competition from other countries, is this the last Olympics for women’s hockey?

If the Wings want some toughness, I say they draft Lamoureux with their 7th round pick next spring. grin

Best part of the video is where the goalie’s standind beside the net calmly cleary sticks out of the way. Hilarious.
