Or as we'd say in English: "pass, shoot and score."

Although through three games at the World Championships, the former would be what recent Golden Knights signing Vadim Shipachyov would say.

The Russian who doesn't speak English whose most unmistakable skills transcend language barriers is off to a rollicking start at the World Championships.

Shipachyov scored two first-period goals in Russia's 6-3 win against Germany on Monday. (Highlights Below)

This is after contributing four assists in a 10-1 Russia win over Italy on Sunday.

To put this in perspective, Shipachyov's six points are tied for fifth among all 320 skaters at the World Championships.
