RESULTS: Voracek bests Giroux in the semifinals

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers

In the tightest race of the tournament so far, Jakub Voracek’s one-man show vs. Caps edged out Claude Giroux’s effort vs. Canucks in the quarterfinal showdown of the Highlight of the Year tournament with a difference just over 30 votes out of over 400 separating the two.

The winning highlight unfolded with Voracek controlling the puck for what seemed like most, if not all, of the overtime period. A 1-on-1 battle with Caps center, Evgeny Kuznetsov, saw the two battle from one corner of the offensive zone to the next and behind the net. Voracek used the net as a shield to break free, spun around into a shooting position and went top-shelf on Braden Holtby for the winner.

Voracek now advances to the semifinals of the Highlight of the Year tournament and will face off against the winner of Michal Neuvirth vs. Nick Cousins, but for now, lets have another look at Voracek’s winning highlight…
