Kaspars Daugavins of Ottawa pinned the puck to the ice with the toe of his stick and tried a spin-a-rama move in a shootout vs. Boston last night.
Daugavins got stopped by Tuukka Rask, because all the goaltender has to do is butterfly and cover his five-hole with his stick. Laud Daugavins for his so-called "creativity," but if you CAN'T SCORE, it's not really a good move.
Let it be noted that Penguins radio color commentator PHIL BOURQUE tried the same move. Not during a shootout, but in open play, and with the Pens trailing against Detroit during the 1990-91 season. Coach Badger Bob Johnson had what could mildly be called a conniption, and advised the old 29er to NEVER TRY THAT AGAIN.
Bourque called it the RAZZLE-DAZZLE. He did not score. But at least, in open play, Bourque had the element of surprise.
