The scoresheet will simply say that the Bruins took a 3-2 shootout win over the Ottawa Senators for their 10th consecutive win over the Sens on their home ice at Scotiabank Place. But what a shootout it was. David Krejci finally clinched it for the Bruins when he roofed a wrist shot that beat Robin Lehner as the fourth shooter for the Black and Gold, and that was after Kyle Turris and Patrice Bergeron traded goals among the first three shooters. The real hubbub was about the immortal Kaspars Daugavins, who nearly executed the kind of shootout score that immediately had him trending on Twitter afterward. Daugavins placed the toe of his stick blade upside down on top of the flat side of the puck and carried the biscuit to the net before executing a spin move and shooting to stuff it just inside the left post. Fortunately Tuukka Rask wasn’t dazzled by all of the trickery and instead followed the puck before kicking out his left leg pad for a game-saving stop that paved the way for Krejci. Apparently Daugavins tried the move once before during an AHL exhibition game, but Rask clearly didn’t have any book about what was coming when the Ottawa forward placed his stick’s toe on the puck and started skating forward.
