Pieces Knocked over
Article 7 of the FIDE Laws of chess

If a player displaces one or more pieces, he shall re-establish the correct position in his own time.
If necessary, either the player or his opponent shall stop the chessclock and ask for the arbiter’s assistance.
The arbiter may penalise the player who displaced the pieces.

7.8.1.   If the player presses the clock without making a move, it shall be considered as an illegal move.
7.8.2   For the first violation of the rule 7.8.1, the arbiter shall give two minutes extra time to his opponent; for the second violation of the rule 7.8.1 by the same player the arbiter shall declare the game lost by this player. However, the game is drawn if the position is such that the opponent cannot checkmate the player’s king by any possible series of legal moves.
"How sad to see, what used to be, a model of decorum and tranquility become like any other sport, a battleground for rival ideologies to slug it out with glee"
