Caps Winning, Scoring In Bushels At Worlds

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.

It looks like they are having a faceoff - with Semin!

Ha. Great call - like a giant ref has dropped Sasha b/t those two Swiss skaters.

I've nicknamed my chiropractor's youngest son The Rabbit.

During one of recent visits, my chiropractor was telling me about how his youngest son lets the rest of his team play defense while he hangs around the center line. When one of his teammates gets the puck, they pass it to him and he goes in on a breakaway. Goal scoing - defense = Russian forward, right?

I saw that. Would've linked to it, but it was way below The Onion's typical quality for humor.
