GRAND FORKS, N. Andrea Barzagli Jersey .D. -- Kevin Dineen learned quickly what the U.S. womens hockey team is all about ahead of the Sochi Winter Games. In his debut as Canadas womens 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, thats an exceptional team there," said Dineen about his first taste of the U.S program. Brianna Decker scored the eventual winner for the Americans while sisters Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux each had a goal and an assist. Hilary Knight added one more to round out the offence. Haley Irwin scored Canadas lone goal of the game as Jayna Hefford and Caroline Ouellette picked up assists. U.S. goaltender Molly Schaus earned the win while Shannon Szabados took the loss for Canada. Irwin opened the scoring for the Canadians at 17:22 of the first period. But the lead didnt last long as Monique Lamoureaux tied it for the Americans with less than 10 seconds to go in the first frame. "Getting scored on in the last 10 seconds of the first gave them momentum and we made some pretty big mental errors," said Irwin. Things got worse for Canada in the second period as they gave up three goals in a seven-minute span. Decker scored for the U.S. at 8:37, Knight tacked on another at 13:24 and Jocelyne Lamoureux made it 4-1 just over two minutes later. "There were preventable plays that led to scoring chances," said Dineen. "The second period was an area I thought we were out played." The Americans not only controlled the scoreboard through the first 40 minutes, but they kept the Canadian squad from any real scoring chances. Heading into the third period Canada had registered just 11 shots on goal. "Ive seen that we need to look for ways to create more offence," said Dineen. "Certaintly putting pucks on the net is a good way to start and we didnt do that enough tonight." The Canadians tried to battle back in the third period, but couldnt find a way to beat Schaus. 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. "Its no different than any other rivalry in sport," Irwin said about the tussle. "That emotional part that came out at the end for both teams ... obviously you dont want players to have major penalties, but emotions do run high in hockey." Dineen took his first international coaching job after Dan Church stepped down unexpectedly last week with less than two months before the start of the Sochi Olympics. Dineen served as head coach of the NHLs Florida Panthers for just over two seasons until he was fired last month.

Kesler was a key contributor for the Canucks after they selected him 23rd overall in 2003 draft. In 655 career games with the franchise, he had 182 goals and 211 assists while also winning the Selke Trophy in 2011. The center also impressed with seven goals and 19 points in 25 playoff games in 2011, when Vancouver made a run to the Cup Finals and lost to Boston in seven games. Seeing how passionate that city was, and the fans, and the hundreds of thousands of people in the streets after every game sticks out, Kesler told Anaheims website of that run to the Finals. I was with the team for 11 years, and going through what I went through with them and that city, its going to be exciting. After Vancouver failed to make the playoffs last season following two straight first-round exits, Kesler was dealt to the Anaheim Ducks on June 27 along with a third-round pick in 2015 for forward Nick Bonino, defenseman Luca Sbisa and a first and third-round selection in 2014. In 15 games with the Ducks this season, the 30-year-old Kesler has three goals and 10 points in 15 games.

Fellow defenseman Francois Beauchemin also is a game-time decision due to the flu as he missed practice on Saturday along with Perry. Andersen should get the start and has won all three of his previous games versus the Canucks with a 1.00 goals against average. He has stopped 97 of the 100 shots faced.

Vancouver had netted eight goals in winning the first two of a four-game road trip before suffering just its second loss in eight games. Chris Higgins scored the only goal of the game for the Canucks on Saturday and Ryan Miller allowed four goals on 22 shots in two periods of work.
