NHL Play of the Year Showdown: Tropp vs. Kadri

TSN.ca's NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with two great dangles.

The 15th match-up of the Round of 32 sees Corey Tropp go it alone, while Nazem Kadri victimizes a defender to set up a goal.

Tropp's individual effort makes one of the game's top rookie defenders look very human.

The Blue Jackets forward takes a cross-ice pass from Boone Jenner and bears down one-on-one against the Penguins' Olli Maatta. He two-drags right around the big Finn and cuts to the net. He then throws another backhand-forehand deke on Jeff Zatkoff to set up the easy goal along the ice.

Kadri doesn't get the finish, but the set-up is a thing of beauty.

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.
