Canada 7, Russia 3

In a matchup between arguably the most talented teams in Vancouver, Canada eliminated Russia from the Olympics in a surprisingly lopsided game.

Ducks forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, still alternating with Brenden Morrow and Eric Staal as their third linemate, had a big hand in the victory. Perry had two goals, including Canada’s seventh, while Getzlaf had two assists and scored Canada’ first goal.

They advance to the semifinals, where they will play either Sweden or Slovakia.
