MONTREAL — The Daug certainly had his day.
Senators winger Kaspars Daugavins was foiled by Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask after a nifty upside-down stick, spinarama shootout attempt in a 3-2 loss Monday, but it was the talk of the hockey world Tuesday.
Urged by teammates to use the move he’s done eight times in games, Daugavins gave it his best shot, but Rask made a toe save before David Krejci sealed the fate for the Senators by beating Robin Lehner on the next shot.
“The guys have been all over me for two years. I had to do it,” said Daugavins, who has used the move with success in the AHL. “I was a little bit under pressure, but I knew I was going to do it at one point."
