After each week during the regular season, Wild.com asked fans to pick the Top Play from each week. Now, we want to know which play is the best of the best. The only way to do this is a 32-play winner-take-all Top Play Tournament. Each of the 27 weekly winners are squaring off along with five wild card plays that received the most votes, but were not picked as Top Plays in their respective weeks.
Voting in Round 2 was close, with a few favorites being upset. Cal Clutterbuck was eliminated from his bracket by two plays, Rau Fools Thomas (2/19 vs. BOS) and Brodziak’s Triple Effort (12/2 vs. NJD).
Dany Heatley pulled an upset over himself with Heatley’s Sick Tip (10/8 vs. CBJ) topping Heatley Beats Buzzer (10/20 at EDM).
Last week, Staubitz Benches Peckham (12/29 vs. EDM) upset Mikko Koivu, but the Wild captain got his revenge with Koivu’s Individual Effort (11/19 vs. STL).
Now in the quarterfinals, we’ve narrowed the field to eight plays with four head-to-head matchups. Each head-to-head winner will advance to the semifinals, which will be announced next Monday. Get a PDF of the quarterfinal bracket, here.
All you have to do is watch each video, select your favorite for each head-to-head matchup, then scroll down to the bottom of the page to submit your vote. Voting will be close on Sunday at 7 p.m. Each Monday, we'll move on to the next round with the winner being announced on Tuesday, May 29.
