Evgeny Kuznetsov’s bird walk celly is making the rounds once again.
Just days after Swiss forward Yannick Bruschweiler used it to celebrate a goal at the 2019 World Juniors, David Pastrnak trotted it out at the Winter Classic.
Pastrnak capitalized on a first-period Bruins’ power-play, burying a wrister past Blackhawks goaltender Cam Ward. But as sweet as the goal was, his celly was even sweeter.
Just look at that epic wingspan. Though not quite as epic as Kuznetsov’s.
During the first intermission, Joe Beninati — who is calling the Winter Classic for NHL International — asked Pastrnak about the celebration. Pastrnak said the celly was one that he used in basketball, but it was much harder to do on the ice.
