Phil Kessel has been playing on the second line with Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin of late.
Kessel has eight goals this season with four finding the back of the net in the last six games. He played a lot last season with Malkin but the chemistry was not there. Thus far this season, the story has been different and Kessel is starting to shoot more. "I thought he was on the puck," coach Mike Sullivan said of Kessel, who picked up his first multi-goal game of the season. "He’s a threat. He’s got such a great shot. Whether it’s off the rush, underneath the hashmarks as part of the cycle game. I thought he did a better job of tonight of participating in that aspect of the game. We preach to this team all the time that we have to be a team that can generate offense different ways." Dec 4 - 8:57 AM
