Canadian Press   September 9, 2016, 9:53 PM

Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist as the United States beat Canada 4-2 in pre-tournament action for the World Cup of Hockey on Friday.

Zach Parise opened the scoring late in the first period, and Kane gave the Americans a 2-0 lead heading into the second.

Canada got on the board when Patrice Bergeron beat U.S. goaltender Jonathan Quick, before Joe Pavelski buried a rebound past Carey Price to restore the two-goal advantage.

The teams traded goals in the third, with Drew Doughty and Derek Stepan scoring for their respective teams.

The North American rivals will meet again Saturday night in Ottawa.
