Claude Giroux weaving his way through the Colorado Avalanche also weaved his way into the Championship round of the 2015 Flyers Highlight of the Year Tournament by defeating Michael Del Zotto in semifinal round.
Giroux advanced by earning nearly 500 votes and 73 percent, defeating Del Zotto’s shorthanded, game-winning goal that had previously won two rounds as a wildcard entry into the tournament.
Giroux, who also earned a victory over himself (a toe-drag beauty on Toronto’s Jonathan Bernier in the quarterfinal) will meet his goaltender, Steve Mason, in the Championship Round. It is the second consecutive year that Giroux is up for Flyers Highlight of the Year, winning 2013-14 with his no-look, backhand game-winning goal vs. Columbus.
Voting for the Finals is set to begin on Monday, but for now, have another look at the winning highlight…
