Today's quarterfinal action at the Worlds was fast and furious, and for the Caps contingent, quite fruitful. Highlights from the four games include:
* Sami Lepisto scored the overtime game-winning goal to bounce the Americans from the tourney.
* Alex Ovechkin, Alex Semin and Sergei Fedorov each scored in Russia's 6-0 route of Switzerland.
* Nicklas Backstrom had a helper in Sweden's win over the Czech Republic.
* Mike Green had a pair of assists in Canada's romp over Norway.
The Caps now have five of the tournament's top 25 scorers (PDF), and with Russia/Finland and Sweden/Canada set for the semis, all six of the Caps named above are still flying high.
