Jussi Jokinen's slash on Zdeno Chara: shades of 'Dumb and Dumber'

I haven't been able to find a good clip of Jussi Jokinen's slash on Zdeno Chara (so this might be updated, please e-mail me if you found it already), but there was something oddly comical about Chara's animated reaction to the slash. Then I realized it was eerily similar to a scene in the artistic masterpiece "Dumb & Dumber."

You may recall a scene where Harry (Jeff Daniels) viciously canes Lloyd (Jim Carrey) in the back of the knee. If you need to refresh your memory, start at about the 6:40 mark of this video:

Pretty good match, right?

Update: Denson from Bangin' Panger sent the clip of the timmmbbbbeeeer slash

Always love a good Dumb and Dumber reference. Well done.

Looks about right to me.

Still shocked that Walker wasn't suspended. With each arbitrary decision the league makes, the "Wheel of Suspension" idea looks less like a joke and more like a helpful time saving method. They can even have a live broadcast!

My suggestion: Make it like that cool "Price is Right" wheel, not the Wheel of Fortune one. Please?
