Thanks to all the fans that have voted, your votes really do count, and every last one makes a difference. There weren't as many close match-ups in the second half of round 1 as there were in the opening eight match-ups.
Part B of Round 1 was more a story of blow-outs. Two plays reached the 90% vote plateau, Bryan Little's March 1 goal against the Florida Panthers, more commonly known as the 5-on-1 grabbed 90% of the vote, and Chris Thorburn's March 5 goal against Buffalo (the toe-drag) reached 91%.
