RESULTS: Ghost to Giroux's overtime winner advances to the Final

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers

A thrilling play in 3 on 3 overtime between Shayne Gostisbehere capped off by Claude Giroux wins the fan's semifinal vote and advances to the final round for the 2015-16 Highlight of the Year.

The highlight earned an overwhelming victory with over 80 percent of the vote to defeat Gostisbehere's game-winning-goal in overtime vs. Maple Leafs to extend a 15-game point streak on Feb. 20 at Toronto.

The winning play unfolded off a rush down the ice in the final seconds of the extra session as Flyers captain Claude Giroux flung a pass in between the circles of the Jets zone, which then deflected in the air. Gostisbehere lept up, knocked the puck down with his hand, then quickly shoveled it with his stick to Giroux who found himself all alone and fired a shot past Ondrej Pavelec for the winner.

Here's another look at this week's winning highlight:
