Disaster has struck again for Canada at the IIHF World Hockey Championship.

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

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

Tomas Kopecky, Miroslav Satan and Milan Bartovic also scored for Slovakia (6-2-0).

Evander Kane, Jeff Skinner and Alex Burrows replied for Canada (6-1-1).

The Slovaks will move on to face the winner of the Sweden-Czech Republic quarter-final, which will be played later today.

Canada is going home early for the third straight year.

The three stupidest words in pro sports are spoken hundreds of times daily in Canadian rinks. Those words are, "Finish the check"
