Russia searches for answers after convincing loss|
In this Olympic tournament of hockey heavyweights, Russia was the odds-on favorite to go the distance,authentic jerseys wholesale, not get knocked out by one punch.
But, that is exactly what happened Wednesday night in its Olympic tournament quarterfinal match against the host Canadians at Canada Hockey Place, losing a 7-3 decision that wasn't even that close.
"They came out like gorillas out of a cage," is how goalie Ilya Bryzgalov saw it.

At the time, Bryzgalov was sitting on the bench, watching the Canadian forwards storm starting goalie Evgeni Nabokov. Before the carnage was over, Bryzgalov would be in the nets himself, replacing Bryzgalov after he allowed six goals on 23 shots in just 24:07 of action.
Wednesday's result was the second-biggest defeat Russia has suffered in Olympic Winter Games history. In 1994, the Russians lost 5-0 to Finland. Wednesday also marked the first time since 1960 -- and 8-5 loss to these same Canadians -- that Russia had allowed so many goals.
Afterward, Bryzgalov said of the loss: "It's a disaster. End of the world."
