Phil Kessel Does What He Does

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz insisted he couldn't remember what right wing Phil Kessel was yelling about on the bench in the second period. But Kunitz was sitting right next to Kessel. He even laughed as he squirted water into his mouth.

How could he not remember when it apparently was pretty funny?

"I don't pay attention that much," Kunitz said, smiling.

Why not?

"Phil is always yelling," he said, laughing.

Kessel certainly was during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final at PPG Paints Arena on Monday. He was also the only one who did any scoring.

Kessel's goal, his sixth of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, second in the past seven games, with 6:55 remaining in the third period stood up as the difference in a 1-0 win against the Ottawa Senators.

"We could have had a couple more, but he's a good goalie," Kessel said of Ottawa's Craig Anderson, who made 28 saves. "Got to find a way to score on him, and fortunately got one."

continued, includes numerous videos from last night...
