BUFFALO, N.Y. — Kieffer Bellows (Edina, Minn./Portland Winterhawks) scored twice and Joseph Woll (St. Louis, Mo./Boston College) made 27 saves to lead the U.S. National Junior Team past Russia, 4-2, tonight in its quarterfinal game of the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship here at KeyBank Center.
