Wrapping up the semifinals of TSN.ca's 2013 Play of the Year Showdown is another strong match featuring talented Sabres forward Cody Hodgson against the skillful Pavel Datsyuk of the Red Wings. One of these two plays will make it to the finals and battle for the 2013 POY title.

In the quarterfinals of the 2013 POY Showdown, Datsyuk barely edged out Eric Fehr, squeaking through with 50.17 per cent of the votes. On the other end of the match-up, Jake Allen was able to easily dust Alexander Semin, taking home 76.70 per cent of the votes.
 
Hodgson shows off some fancy stick-work, clever thinking and great hands with his POY candidate. Hodgson cruises with the puck from the neutral zone to the net, dodging player after player, and making his opponents looks like pylons in a skating drill.

This POY entry by Datsyuk showcases his hands, vision and perseverance. He starts by throwing a solid hit in his own defensive zone and retrieving the loose puck, and by the time this play is over, Datsyuk makes every single Nashville player on the ice look silly.
