ESPN releases short film about Sabres' Malarchuk titled 'Cutthroat'

By John Vogl

My former Sabres beat mate Tim Graham told the harrowing tale of Clint Malarchuk back in 2004, a story that allowed readers into the former Buffalo goaltender's tortured and deranged mind, as Malarchuk himself described it.

ESPN has taken its turn.

The sports network's acclaimed "30 for 30" series has a "30 for 30 Shorts" spinoff, and today ESPN released "Cutthroat," the story of Malarchuk's battle. It includes the slicing of his neck by a skate in Memorial Auditorium.

It can be viewed by clicking here.
