Another tough loss, but at least they made a game of it. Feel really bad for Binnington. Unlike Subban in the last game, Binnington's play really did cost them the game with those two softies he let in. And in spite of Murphy's three points today, his defensive play was brutal. Good to see the two players of the game both Oilers players, though.

It was disappointing, though, to see a couple of the Russian players rub it in as they passed the Canadian bench after the game.

If it's Canada-Russia in a meaningful game, it has to be a 6-5 score. And it was today in what was as exciting and thrilling a bronze-medal game as you are ever likely to see.

Valeri Nichushkin poured down the right wing and cut hard in on goal during the 4-on-4 overtime. He cut around defenceman Morgan Reilly and then beat goalie Malcolm Subban to poke the puck in and give Russia the bronze medal.

"He had good speed and made a good play," Reilly said. "It just turned out to be a goal."

"When you beat Canada in a special game like this at home, for me it’s like my own gold," said Danil Zharkov. "I'm really happy."

Canada's streak of medals for 14 years in a row comes to an end with this fourth-place finish. The two top teams Canada beat in the preliminary round came back to eliminate them in the playoff round. Canada beat the U.S. 2-1 and the Russians 4-1 in the early going, but lost to the Americans 5-1 in the semi-finals and now today to the Russians.

"We gave everything today, and that’s why we won," said captain Nail Yakupov. It’s life. It’s hockey. We probably lost some energy against Switzerland and then Sweden, that was tough. Today in the third period everybody still felt a little tired, but we worked hard and we gave 100 percent."

It comes with being the Canadians on some level, but it drove me nuts as well, it's a bronze medal for God's sake, show some class.
