SOCHI, Russia (AP) - Fighting may be frowned upon in Olympic hockey. But there’s nothing wrong with a good little skirmish every once in a while.

In the middle of an intense quarterfinal women’s game between Finland and Sweden, several players got into a serious shoving match, which was caught in this photo from Associated Press photographer Matt Slocum.

Sweden’s Emma Eliasson, Erica Juden Johansson and Anna Borgqvist squared off against Michelle Karvinen and Susanna Tapani of Finland.

Referees had to wade into the mosh pit to break things up.
