RESULTS: Giroux\'s goal advances to Finals
Giroux\'s no-look, backhand top-shelf defeats Rinaldo\'s \"Best Hit\" to advance to the tournament finals


RESULTS: Claude Giroux becomes the first player to move into the finals of the Flyers Highlight of the Year Tournament.

An overwhelming majority of voters chose Giroux's no-look, backhand top shelf winner against the Blue Jackets, coming in at over 75 percent of the vote, against Zac Rinaldo's crushing hit on Kyle Clifford.

The captain would be a crucial part of another Flyers comeback victory, scoring the game-tying goal late in the third period. But he wasn't done yet. Giroux finds a shot wide from Mark Streit at the point and holds off a Columbus defender and flips a shot from his backhand to go top-shelf on Curtis McElhinney. His game-winner also turned out to be his 100th career goal as the Flyers capped off a five-goal third period and third straight unanswered goal to hand the Blue Jackets a 5-4 loss at the Wells Fargo Center on Dec. 19

Giroux's goal will go on to face the winner of the "Best in OT" and "Best Save" matchup.

But for now, check out this week's winning highlight - the Best Goal of 2013-14.
