#40 Semyon Varlamov
It was a chippy affair with lots of altercations and penalties. Canadian Steve Downie (18 PIM) got into a tussle with Sergei Fedorov (4 PIM) midway through the third period. Downie and Brent Burns also mixed it up with at the end of the second period with Malkin and Konstantin Korneyev.

Interestingly, with all the fireworks, neither Alex Ovechkin (5-1-6 in 7 games) or Alexander Semin (1-4-5 in 7 games) got on the scoreboard, though Semin did take an early high-sticking penalty. Semyon Varlamov improved to 4-0 with a .957 Save Percentage, a 1.25 GAA and 1 shutout. Familiar faces Sergei Fedorov (7 GP, 2-4-6)and Viktor Kozlov (7 GP, 1-2-3) are also playing well.

Capitals winger Brooks Laich (1 goal in 7 games) was held scoreless for Canada in the game. While the Russians are sporting 16 of their Olympians in this tournament, the only Canadian Olympian playing in this tournament was Corey Perry, and he took a pair of slashing penalties in the game. Canada's tournament is done, and they go home empty-handed. [Team Canada Stats]
