After five weeks of voting Panthers fans came to a resounding conclusion; Stephen Weiss
' overtime game-winner against Colorado was indeed the Play Of The Year.
Weiss steamrolled through most of his competition with his closest scare coming in the third round of voting. His play outlasted Jason Garrison
's overtime game-winner with just 53% of the vote. Other than that close call, Weiss' winner took home over 60% of the voting in his match-ups, including defeating Dmitry Kulikov
and his OT winner against Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils in the final round of voting by receiving 64% of the vote.
Vaulting Weiss to be the Panthers 2010-11 Play Of The Year was an extraordinary individual effort on December 7th during Week 9 of the season. Cutting across the crease, the Panthers assistant captain collected a rebound off his skate and kicked it over to his stick. Drawing a penalty as he was hooked on the play, Weiss scored into the open net while falling to the ice. The goal gave the Panthers a 4-3 come-from-behind victory just 43 seconds into the overtime period.1st Round
