RESULTS: Giroux's OT winner advances to Finals

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers

RESULTS: Claude Giroux earned just over 55 percent of the votes to defeat Steve Mason's amazing save on Pens' Beau Bennett in the second semifinal fan vote in the Flyers Highlight of the Year Tournament.

In what would be a common storyline all season, Giroux raced down the wing with the final seconds of overtime ticking off.

Using the defenseman as a screen, he fired a rocket over the shoulder of Chicago netminder Antti Raanta to steal a victory in dramatic fashion over the defending Stanley Cup Champions. It was part of a streak that saw the Flyers win five straight games in mid-March.

Giroux will now face off against himself in the Finals to determine the "Highlight of the Year". This week's winner, his last second winner in OT against the Blackhawks will go up against the ever popular backhand, no-look flip against the Blue Jackets.

But for now, check out the highlight fans chose to advance to the Finals.
