With the Leafs leading 5-0 in game seven of their second round series against the Blues, Wendel Clark pulls a "waster" on Curtis Joseph.

My favorite part of the entire sequence is the MLG crowd reaction: an excited buzz as they realize Clark has a chance at a hat trick, followed by momentary confusion when they see that he didn't score, followed by delirious cheers when they realize he's chosen to murder the other team's goalie instead.

Joseph's attempt to shrug it off as no big deal is actually sort of badass, or at least it would have been if Curt Giles hadn't completely ruined it by rushing over to give him a hug. That part kills me.

On a related note, this was the only actual slapshot Wendel took in his entire NHL career.

I had this play at #12 on my list of the Top 17 Wendel Clark moments of all time: http://www.downgoesbrown.com/2008/11/...
