Canada’s run at Worlds is over.

Corey Perry and Team Canada were eliminated from the World Championships in Cologne, Germany with a 5-2 quarterfinal loss to Russia on Thursday.

Late third-period goals by John Tavares and Matt Duchene were the only highlights for a frustrated Team Canada, which drew almost 50 penalty minutes. Perry, the Ducks’ lone representative on the team, was held scoreless and collected four penalty minutes.

Russia will play Germany, while the Czech Republic will play Sweden, in the two semifinal games.
