Best moment of the week? Prust, Hamilton, 5-on-3 kill

What a great start to the season. Here are three of the most exciting moments so far. Vote on what play you think deserves to be the Bridgestone Performance Moment of the Week.

Prust Introduction: In just his fourth game as a Canadien, Brandon Prust introduces himself to the hometown fans with a big goal against the New Jersey Devils. Thanks to a turnover at the blue line followed by a nifty pass from rookie Alex Galchenyuk, Prust says "bonjour" to the Habs faithful.

Hamilton to Krejci: Someone might want to remind Bruins rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton that he's only 19 years old. Locked in a tie game in Carolina against the Hurricanes, Hamilton shows the poise of a veteran by swinging a perfect pass to David Krejci, who makes no mistake in scoring the game-winning goal.

5-on-3 Penalty Kill: Looking for a painful workout? Try stepping on the ice to kill off a 5-on-3 man advantage against the Philadelphia Flyers, whose power play ranked sixth in the League last season. Thanks to smart positional play, raw athleticism and a whole lot of courage, the New York Rangers get a huge penalty kill in a big divisional matchup.
