A few more Wendel Clark youtube finds

I posted a few more clips to the new youtube channel over the weekend. Among them were a few previously missing clips that came up during last fall's Top 17 Wendel Moments countdown:

The final ovation - Leaf fans say thank you to Wendel Clark

Original post is here. This is from the round two playoff game against the Devils during Clark's final stint with the Leafs in 2000. Wendel assisted on the winning goal, then got a long standing ovation after hitting the post on a third-period rush. (Unfortunately the CBC went to commercial during the ovation so you don't get the full impact in this clip.)

The "waster" on Curtis Joseph

Original post here. I named this the #12 top Wendel moment and the feedback was almost unanimous that it should have been higher.

Wendel's subtle interference on Ed Belfour wins an OT game for the Leafs

Original post here. Todd Gill scores the winner, but watch for Wendel's sneaky tap of Belfour's stick to open up the fivehole. The CBC completely misses it, but the Global Sportsline guys get the scoop from an irate Belfour afterwards.

I've also uploaded several montages from various CBC games, including a version of their "The Chance Will Never Come Again" song that they should really still be using.

I won't clog up the blog with updates every time I post a new video, so be sure to visit and subscribe if you want to be notified of new clips.

Back to regularly scheduled content later this week, including a new feature highlighting some of the small moments in every NHL game that are completely dumb.

    the only reason Cujo survives that shot, is Wendel took it easy on him. All of these clips are great, you've done a great service putting them online for all to share.

  3. It's a real shame that the commercials cut down that ovation clip. It feels really good to hear the croud appreciating a player like that.

  4. On the Cujo "waster", Harry Neale makes an excellent observation (0:55).

    "It looks like he hit Joseph right in the spot where Foligno kicked him."


  5. I waste a lot of time on your site, DGB. Thank you.

  6. I love the Belfour clip...maybe if the $1 billion cheque he gave McCreary earlier didn't bounce he would have gotten the call...
