Russia beats U.S. in world junior hockey quarterfinals

MALMO, Sweden -- Russia beat the United States 5-3 in the world junior hockey quarterfinals Thursday, rallying to take the lead on Nakita Zadorov's two power-play goals.

Pavel Buchnevich also scored twice for Russia, Mikhail Grigorenko added a goal, and Andrei Vasilevski made 30 saves.
New Jersey Devils farmhand Stefan Matteau, Plymouth Whalers forward Ryan Hartman and Wisconsin's Nic Kerdiles had first-period goals for the United States, the tournament winner last year in Russia. Providence's John Gillies stopped 20 shots.
Russia faces the Sweden-Slovakia winner in the semifinals. In the other quarterfinals, Canada faced Switzerland, and the Czech Republic played Finland.
