And so it begins! The Russians have been heard from, and they're not happy with the way yesterday's shootout loss to the United States played out. Surprise, surprise.

In particular, they didn't like the way that U.S. goalie Jonathan Quick dislodged the net in the third period. Russian defenseman Fedor Tyutin scored what would have been the game-winning goal, but because the net was dislodged, the goal was taken away after review.

Russian defenseman Slava Voynov is teammates with Quick on the Los Angeles Kings. Still, he went after the goalie in his postgame comments on Saturday. Russian star Alex Ovechkin similarly took Quick, and the officials, to task.
