Canada beat the United States 4-2 in a fiercely contested women's ice hockey preliminary round match at the Wukesong Sports Center in Beijing on Tuesday.
Though both teams had already secured spots in the quarterfinals, it was still one of the most highly anticipated matchups of these Winter Games.
It was also both teams' final games in the preliminary round before the seeds are determined for the quarterfinals, which begin Thursday.
In the latest instalment of the rivalry, Canada – despite being outshot by the US 53-27 – had the upper hand.
Four years ago at Pyeongchang, the US beat Canada in a penalty shootout in the final to win Olympic gold. Between them, the two teams have won every Olympic gold medal in this sport.
Canada leads Group A with four wins out of four, with the US in second.
And the two big rivals could meet again in Beijing — if they progress to the finals.
Even the referees are tough in ice hockey: The officials weren't spared from the rough and tumble on the ice Tuesday — referee Cianna Lieffers had to take time out after a US player accidentally hit her in the face with her stick, leaving her bleeding from her mouth.
