Highlight of the Year: Quarterfinal #4

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers

Three of the four positions are all set and the last vote of the week will determine the final four of this year’s Highlight of the Year Tournament.

The two highlights battling it out over the next two days features an amazing diving save in the final seconds of a one-goal game and a prospect’s great play for his first NHL goal.

Fans can vote an unlimited amount of times, but polls close at 1 p.m. ET on Friday, Sept. 2 with the winner being announced shortly afterwards. Watch each highlight below and cast your vote:

HIGHLIGHT #1: FEB. 25 vs. Minnesota Wild

In the final seconds of a crucial game against the Minnesota Wild, the Flyers were holding onto a one-goal lead, but were outnumbered on a 6-on-5 situation. Forward Mikael Granlund controlled the puck on the right half wall and threaded a slow pass across the ice to center Charlie Coyle. Coyole fired the puck into a wide open net, only to see a remarkable diving save from Michal Neuvirth with 1.6 seconds remaining.

HIGHLIGHT #2: FEB. 11 vs. Buffalo Sabres

Nick Cousins enters the second round of voting after winning the wild card round from week 1. Having been recently recalled to the Flyers, Cousins makes a great play to steal the puck in the defensive zone by blocking a slap shot at the point from Sabres right wing Justin Bailey, who had trouble handling the puck after it deflected back to him. Cousins poked the puck past Bailey and raced after it in open ice before blasting a slap shot from the top of the circle to beat Sabres goalie Robin Lehner for his first NHL goal.
