Coyotes at IIHF World Championship: Bronze Medal Game

by Staff Writer / Arizona Coyotes

Russia 7, USA 2

Sergei Moyzakin notched two goals and an assist, and Artemi Panarin had a goal and two assists for host Russia, which jumped to a 4-0 lead and cruised to victory in the bronze medal game.

Coyotes defenseman Connor Murphy played 17:52 for the Americans, who missed a chance to become the first nation ever to win back-to-back bronze medals by beating host countries. In last year's bronze game, the U.S. earned a 3-0 shutout over a Czech team with tournament MVP Jaromir Jagr in Prague. The last time the U.S. medalled at consecutive Worlds was in 1949 (bronze) and 1950 (silver).
