Tereshchenko was pulling a Tomas Holmstrom, blocking Dalton’s view from the crease, when the goalie delivered a slash to the forward’s groin that immediately cleared the view. Cue the film:

Dalton earned himself five minutes in the box for the slash, along with a small slice of YouTube immortality.
