TORONTO - Anabelle Langlois and Georges Laraque have been eliminated from the "Battle of the Blades."

Isabelle Brasseur and Todd Warriner also found themselves in the bottom two but will remain for another week.

Skating to Seal’s "Kiss From a Rose," Langlois and Laraque earned praise but not enough points to keep in the kitschy competition that pairs former hockey heroes with female pairs skaters for live performances that are voted on by TV viewers.

The winning pair earns $100,000 for the charity of their choice.

``Battle of the Blades'' airs live performance shows Sundays and live results shows Mondays on CBC-TV.

The six pairs returning to compete next Sunday are: Violetta Afanasieva and P.J. Stock, Shae-Lynn Bourne and Patrice Brisebois, Brasseur and Warriner, Katia Gordeeva and Valeri Bure, Kyoko Ina and Kelly Chase, Jamie Sale and Theo Fleury.
