Ennis dominated the first round of the bracket, beating out the Boston Bruins’ Shawn Thornton with 77.89% of the votes. The next round versus the Bruins’ Benoit Pouliot was a lot closer, but Ennis pulled out the victory with 51.21% of the votes. Then there was the nail-biter. In the final minutes on the third round of the bracket, Ennis came back from being down votes from the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin and edged out a 50.14% victory.
