Alexander Yakushev doesn't speak English, but his expression revealed the answer even before the interpreter delivered it. Even 33 years later, Bob Clarke's two-handed slash that cracked the ankle of Russian superstar Valeri Kharlamov in Game 6 of the Summit Series rankles Yakushev. "That moment should be on Bobby Clarke's conscience," Yakushev said recently. Reached in Philadelphia, Clarke declined comment.
