Top Plays Tournament - Finals

After each week during the regular season, asked fans to pick the Top Play from each week. Now, we want to know which play is the best of the best. The only way to do this is a 32-play winner-take-all Top Plays Tournament. Each of the 27 weekly winners are squaring off along with five wild card plays that received the most votes, but were not picked as Top Plays in their respective weeks.

The semifinals saw one upset and another close vote.

In the first semifinal matchup, Bouchard’s Pick And Finish (11/25 vs. EDM) was a big upset over Brodziak’s Triple Effort (12/2 vs. NJD). On the other side of the bracket, Koivu’s Exploding Shoulder Set Up (11/1 at DET) edged out Latendresse Handiwork (11/3 vs. VAN) by a mere three votes.

The final two plays are now going head-to-head for the title of Top Play of the Year. All you have to do is watch the video matchup, select your favorite and then scroll down to the bottom of the page to submit your vote. Get a PDF of the final round bracket, here.

Voting will be close on Sunday at 7 p.m. The winner of the Top Plays Tournament will be announced on Tuesday, May 29.
