The quarterfinals of TSN.ca's 2013 Play of the Year Showdown continue with Carolina's Alexander Semin going up against St. Louis' goalie Jake Allen.

In the Round Two of the 2013 POY Showdown, Allen battled it out to the end, just beating Joffrey Lupul with 50.41 per cent of the votes. Alexander Semin had an easier match, thumping Shawn Matthias with 70.08 per cent of the votes.
 
Jake Allen's save comes courtesy of an unfortunate turnover against the Calgary Flames. Calgary's T.J. Brodie finds himself in the slot with the puck, all alone, with a yawning net and out of position Jake Allen in front of him. What happens next could very well be the best play of the year. It's up to you.
 
Semin comes up with a brilliant play for his POY nomination, creating opportunity out of what seemed like a broken play. With great vision, Semin picks up the puck to the right of the goalie and makes an incredible, no-look pass that you have to see to believe.
