Quarterfinal: Russia 3 – CANADA 7

Goals: Kalinin (Volchenkov, Fedorov), Afinogenov (Kovalchuk, Grebeshkov), Gonchar (Malkin) – Getzlaf (Boyle, Pronger), Boyle (Heatley, Marleau), Nash (Toews, Richards), Morrow (Boyle, Keith), Perry (Getzlaf, Keith), Weber (Toews, Iginla), Perry (Staal, Getzlaf)
Shots: Russia 28 – Canada 42
Saves: Nabokov 17/23, Bryzgalov 18/19 – Luongo 25/28
PIM: Russia 10 – Canada 10

After playing its worst Olympic game in history, Russia is going home with a 6th-place finish. From the start of the match, Russia could not contain Canada’s aggressive and energetic offense. Only after 24 minutes and a score of 6-1, the coach pulled Nabokov. Bryzgalov fared much better in net, but Russia’s overall uncharacteristic play made the game uncompetitive. Russia lost in regulation time for the first time since the 2006 World Championship and lost under Bykov and Zakharkin for only the third time in a stretch of 31 games. This is also Russia’s first Olympic loss to Canada in fifty years. Clearly, the team that wanted to win more won.
