Russia played Turkey at the European Youth Olympic Festival and the result was one of the most impressive sports beat downs of all time. After 60 minutes of hockey, Russia won 42-0.
This has to be up there with some of the most impressive sports blowouts of all time.

When Auston Matthews, the 18-year-old phenom taken No. 1 overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in this year’s NHL draft, introduced himself to the league by scoring four goals in the first game of the season, the feat had hockey fans wracking their brains for the last time a teenager notched such a prolific performance.
It turns out they didn’t have to think back too far: It was last season.Calgary’s Sam Bennett was 19 when he netted four times against the Florida Panthers on Jan. 13, meaning the NHL’s last two four-goal games now belong to teenagers.
As teams have relied more on speed over size while grappling with the financial constraints of the salary cap, they are placing a premium on stars barely old enough to drive. And while this phenomenon isn’t new to the NHL, the exploits and the prominent roles these young players have played so far this season certainly are.
“I think every year you see the league getting younger,” said Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. “The game has changed into a fast, mobile game. The kids can skate. They have all the skills. I just don’t know if they all have the brains.”

Nine days after making his NHL debut at the age of 27, Florida Panthers forward Shane Harper scored his first NHL goal Saturday. For good measure, he scored again in a 5-2 win against the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 at BB&T Center. "There's time when you think like (you'll never score an NHL goal), for sure, but I've been pretty confident in myself that it would come," Harper said. "I always thought I just needed to get my shot. But yeah, sometimes there is doubt over the years, but you just have to have confidence in yourself." Jonathan Marchessault and Vincent Trochek each had a goal and an assist, and Aaron Ekblad scored for the Panthers (3-1-1).
