The NHL Play of the Year showdown's second round resumes today with some quick hands battling some quick feet.

Today's Round of 16 match-up features Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick taking on Toronto Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri.

Quick looks beaten, but gets a skate in the way at just the right time.

Blake Wheeler hurls a shot on net from a tight angle, but Quick is flat on his stomach with no chance of moving his body in front of the attempt. He decides to try an isolation move. Quick lifts his left leg up in the air behind him yoga-style and manages to get his skate to the puck and deny Wheeler's look at the gaping twine.

Quick took better than 60 per cent of the vote in his all-goaltending battle against the Stars' Kari Lehtonen.

Kadri, meanwhile, scorches a rival defender to set up a gift for a teammate.

The Leafs centre sees a challenge coming from Montreal defender Alexei Emelin and absolutely inside-outs the Russian blueliner. Drawing Carey Price's attention with a drive to the net, Kadri slides the puck cross-ice and finds Cody Franson streaking in for the one-time tap-in.

Kadri topped the Columbus Blue Jackets' Corey Tropp in the first round, taking over 56 per cent of the vote.
