If one were looking for an upset from the first three days of the 2013 World Junior Championship, probably the closest example came on Day 3 of the tournament with the Czech Republic's 3-1 win over Finland.

While Finland was not a prohibitive favorite in this game, they were generally considered to be the better of the two clubs heading into the tournament.

Los Angeles Kings prospect Tomas Hyka got things going for the Czech's in this game with his first goal of this tournament while goaltender Patrik Bartosak of the WHL's Red Deer Rebels stopped 29 of 30 shots to seal the victory for his country.

Hyka and Bartosak spoke with HF and other media following the win, which is captured in this HF video.
