Leaving Flin Flon

Bobby Clarke was once asked about his slash on Kharlamov during the ’72 series.  His reply:  “If I hadn’t learned to lay on a two-hander once in awhile, I’d never have left Flin Flon.”

If you google maps Flin Flon, you’ll notice it’s a fair distance from anywhere except what appears to be good fishing.   Motivation perhaps?
