Last year, Wild.com wanted help from our fans in the State of Hockey and beyond to help us select the Top Play of the Year. To do so, we needed you to pick the Top Plays each week, so we could pit them against each other in the offseason in a single-elimination tournament. We had so much fun, we're going to do it again this year.
This week, we have three great plays from one great game. First, was Jonas Brodin's first-career NHL goal, quite a snipe high to the glove side. The second play up for nomination is a great passing play from Ryan Suter that resulted in a Mikko Koivu goal: Tik-Tak-Koivu. Finally, Niklas Backstrom makes a split save against the Avalanche to ice the game.
