There were plenty of terrific performances to choose from this week. Below are three of the most exciting moments from the last seven days. Vote on what play you think deserves to be the Bridgestone Performance Moment of the Week.

Chara's spin-o-rama goal: On Sunday, Boston captain Zdeno Chara pulled off a sensational spin-o-rama move prior to scoring a top-shelf backhand goal. After entering the Panthers zone, Chara spun around a Panthers defenseman, went wide and scored the B's second goal of the game.

Kopecky's first hat trick: Panthers winger Tomas Kopecky frustrated the Pittsburgh Penguins all night Tuesday, netting his first career NHL hat trick to lift Florida to a 6-4 win.

Bishop's endgame: Senators backup goalie Ben Bishop proved why he was named the NHL's "Third Star" for the week ending Feb. 24. He made 44 saves to help the Sens beat the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 in a shootout at Scotiabank Place.
