The NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with a couple players embarking on solo missions.

The second quarterfinal matchup pits Anaheim Ducks power forward Ryan Kesler against Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban.

Kesler scores on a stellar shorthanded effort as he slithers between a pair of Arizona Coyotes and then snaps the puck past Mike Smith, all with Sam Gagner basically hanging off his back.

Subban displayed his ability to go around the world to a capacity Bell Centre crowd and made the Colorado Avalanche defence look silly. The 25-year-old blueliner chased down the puck in Avs' corner before embarking on a seemingly effortless skate around the net. Then, with no defenders in sight, Subban squared up against goaltender Calvin Pickard and undressed him with a beautiful deke before scoring.

Kesler beat Nashville Predators young defenceman Mattias Ekholm in the Round of 16 while Subban made quick work of Matt Cullen and Taylor Beck of the Nashville Predators.
