Over the last few seasons, Wild.com wanted help from fans in the State of Hockey and beyond to help select the Top Play of the Year. To do so, we needed you to pick the Top Play each week, so we could pit them against each other in the offseason in a single-elimination tournament. Last season, Zach Parise’s stellar wrister against Calgary won top honors, defeating Mikko Koivu’s tic-tap-tip-in play against Winnipeg.
Last week’s winning play was Jonas Brodin's sweet stick save during the Wild's five-on-three penalty kill against the Los Angeles Kings.
Right place, right time for the first play of the week — Thomas Vanek tapped home a goal against the New York Rangers after the puck caromed off the boards for a perfectly timed back-door play.
Next up is Devan Dubnyk's classic poke check save against Darren Helm. Helm was in alone on Dubnyk, who came out of his crease and dove to stop the puck, causing the Red Wings' center to jump over the goaltender.
Then last, but not least is Zach Parise's second of the game against Detroit. The power play got a whole lot more powerful when Parise tipped home a shot from right in front of the crease.
Now it’s time for you to make your pick for your favorite play of the past week.
