QUEBEC CITY -- Mark Parrish scored with 4.5 seconds remaining to lead the United States to a 5-4 victory over Canada on Friday night in the teams' final North American tuneup before the world hockey championships.

Matt Cullen had two goals for the Americans, and Mike Knuble and Yan Stastny also scored in front of 7,166 fans at the Quebec Coliseum.

Joe Thornton, Simon Gagne, Dany Heatley and Sheldon Souray scored for Canada.

Canadian goalie Martin Brodeur allowed two goals on 10 shots in a period and a half after stopping all 18 shots he faced in Canada's 3-1 win over the Americans in Halifax on Wednesday. Brodeur was replaced at 10:11 of the second by Roberto Luongo, who stopped 15 of 18 shots.

Rick DiPietro played the entire game in goal for the Americans, stopping 27 shots.
