    A fight broke out in the last second of Canada's win over the US at the Olympic women's ice hockey group stage with both teams qualifying for the knock-out phase.

    With Canada up 2-1 and zeroes on the clock, several players got into it right in front of the winners' goal, resulting in a two-minute roughing penalty for Canada's Marie-Philip Poulin and four minutes for USA's Monique Lamoureux.

    Afterwards, there was a lengthy review by the referees when the Americans refused to leave the ice without confirmation they didn’t score before the final buzzer, but it was deemed no goal.

    The Canadians remained perfect to clinch Group A. If the US team wants another shot at their arch-rivals, they'll have to find it in the gold medal game next Thursday.
