Datsyuk vs. Brodeur

Surprisingly, Pavel Datsyuk narrowly defeated his opponent last round, sneaking by Joffrey Lupul in what was the tightest matchup of the round. Many would’ve predicted that Datsyuk would dominate the matchup, but Leafs nation ensured that it wasn’t a walk in the park. It may not have been as close, but another Leaf, James van Riemsdyk made things interesting for Martin Brodeur as they battled for a spot in the semifinals. In the end, the left half of the semifinals bracket will pit Selke-nominated Datsyuk against one of the best goalies of all-time, Martin Brodeur.

Tavares vs. Bobrovsky

The always dangerous Philadelphia Flyers saw their hopes of back-to-back covers dashed as John Tavares rallied on the final day to eliminate Wayne Simmonds from contention. In what was a back and forth affair, the ‘Wayne Train’ ran out of steam when it mattered most. The ultimate underdog, the Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky continues to make waves in the cover vote. Bobrovsky defeated Taylor Hall to secure his spot. Will Tavares lock up a spot in the finals or will Bobrovsky continue to buck the trend?
