USA was down 4-3 to Russia at the U-20 World Junior Tournament with their goalie pulled when defenseman Matt Grzelcyk lost the puck, fell down and Russian forward Pavel Buchnevich buried it into the empty netter.

Short after, Russian forward Eduard Gimatov and a coach were seen taunting the US bench, with the coach making a ********-type gesture.

Obviously, Buchnevich would get his just deserts with the stick to upper body. Karma, maybe... I took a little bit of heat for the aricle, I also had some youth hockey coaches...
Pavel Buchnevich (2013, 3rd) had a pair of goals as Russia eliminated Brady Skjei (2012, 1st) and Team USA by a score of 5-3. Buchnevich scored Russia’s second and fifth (empty net) goals, also nabbing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty while celebrating in front of the USA bench. Russia advances to face the winner of the Slovakia/Canada game.
Skjei notched an assist on USA’s...
Russia eliminated Team USA from the World Junior Championships in the quarterfinals on Thursday morning and they didn’t do it quietly.
The reigning gold medal winners were sent packing following a 5-3 loss but, to make the loss even harder to swallow, the Russians weren’t necessarily humble winners. After Pavel Buchnevich‘s empty-net goal sealed the win, he skated by the American...
