This past week had no shortage of great highlights, but we thought the three exciting moments below stood out from the rest. Vote on what play you think deserves to be the Bridgestone Performance Moment of the Week.

Letang goes top shelf: In the second period of Game 5 against the Senators, Penguins defenseman Kris Letang dragged the puck at the far end of the faceoff circle, eluded a defender and scored on a wrister that beat Craig Anderson. Pittsburgh eliminated Ottawa in a convincing 6-2 triumph.

Toews' pass: Looking to force Game 7 against Detroit, Chicago captain Jonathan Toews dug the puck out of the corner of the Red Wings' zone during the third period and passed it to Bryan Bickell who stuffed a goal past Jimmy Howard to put Detroit up for good.

Quick robs Pavelski: In Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals, Sharks center Joe Pavelski had a wide open net but was robbed by Kings goalie Jonathan Quick late in the third. Quick's late heroics enabled Los Angeles to hold off San Jose, 2-1, to win the series.
