Russians obscenely taunt Team USA bench after eliminating them from World Juniors


Russia eliminated reigning gold medal winners Team USA from the World Junior Championships in the quarterfinals of the tournament on Thursday morning, topping the Americans by a score of 5-3. The Russians moved to 5-0 against America in WJC elimination games but they didn’t exactly act like they had been there before.

After scoring the empty-netter that sealed USA’s fate, Russia’s Pavel Buchnevich skated by the US bench and taunted them with a celebration before being stuck in the face with the stick of Brady Skjei at the end of the Americans’ bench. In a bit of twisted irony, both Buchnevich and Skjei are prospects within the New York Rangers organization and could be future teammates.


A coach or trainer on the Russian bench then also proceeded to taunt the USA bench with an obscene gesture, one that may see him in a bit of trouble from the IIHF.
