The Russians Wish Bobby Clarke A Happy 64th Birthday

from Sport Express (rough, Google translation),

Clark remembered by our fans during the Super Series 1972 Canada - USSR, when in the sixth game, held in Moscow, Valery Kharlamov inflicted injury and was branded "murderers". After the match Super Series-1976, when CSKA lost only one match for the ocean - "Philadelphia", the Soviet press and pinned him another nickname "Captain bandits with Broad Street."...

For our fans the most memorable was the sixth episode of the 1972 Super Series match between the national teams of the USSR and Canada, which took place in Moscow. Clark, wielding a stick, like a sword, slashed on the ankle of Valery Kharlamov, moving out of the building. "If I did not put opponents sometimes with both hands, I'd still cuckoo in the village of Flin Flon" - a quotation Clark of the moment.
