by Staff Writer / New York Islanders


Michal Handzus tipped in a shot with 2:32 to play in regulation as Slovakia eliminated Canada with a 4-3 quarter-final victory at the World Hockey Championship.

The goal came just five seconds after Canadian captain Ryan Getzlaf was given a five-minute major for kneeing Juraj Mikus.

Tomas Kopecky, Miroslav Satan and Milan Bartovic also scored for Slovakia. Evander Kane, Jeff Skinner and Alex Burrows replied for Canada, which had fought back from an early 2-0 deficit to lead it 3-2 heading into the third period.
