Buchnevich Taunts USA Bench in RUS Win at WJC Quarters

Early this morning, any hopes of the U.S. repeating a gold medal at the 2014 World Junior Championship were dashed when Russia completed a 5-3 win in the quarterfinals.

Rangers prospect Pavel Buchnevich (who had a strong game, scoring two goals and adding an assist) finished the Americans off with an empty netter, then proceeded to up his celebration game afterwards. [click to see the full gif, plus a Russian coach doing some sort of taunt I'm not particularly familiar with]

Buchnevich also took a stick to the face for his troubles.
