Video: Vokoun, Letang shut down Horton’s semi-breakaway

Jun 5, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

Fair or not, both Tomas Vokoun and Kris Letang have been scapegoats as the Pittsburgh Penguins have gone down 2-0 in their third-round series against the Boston Bruins. Win or lose, they’ve played much better in Game 3 on Wednesday.

That moment really was crystallized early in overtime as Letang took away much of Nathan Horton‘s time and space while Vokoun stopped the shot on this dangerous semi-breakaway opportunity:

The rest of OT will determine if this was just a nice moment or a possible turning point in the 2013 Eastern Conference finals.

      I think Bergeron and Tuukka deserve some serious Conn Smythe consideration after tonight, if they didn’t already. What a game.
