Phil Kessel scored a goal and two assists in Pittsburgh's 6-0 win over Nashville in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Thursday night.
Kessel came into this game having collected just two assists in his last six contests, but he exploded tonight. The Penguins forward found the back of the net at the 8:02 mark of the second period to give his team a 5-0 lead at the time. Kessel also helped set up Evgeni Malkin's first-period goal and Ron Hainsey's marker in the third frame. Kessel now has eight goals and 23 points in 24 games during the postseason. The Penguins are just one win away from becoming the first team in the salary cap era to hoist the Stanley Cup in back-to-back years. Game 6 will be played in Nashville on Sunday night. Jun 8 - 11:51 PM
