GIF: Phil Kessel really likes smelling salts apparently
Prior to Tuesday night's game in Florida, Phil Kessel apparently needed a wakeup so he grabbed the smelling salts. And kept on smelling.
Some would say the Toronto Maple Leafs looked like they were tired in the first two periods on Tuesday night in Florida. They were outshot by the lowly Panthers 19-4 in the first period alone.
That's seven painful sniffs for those counting at home, each one seemingly more intense than the last.
Unfortunately, it didn't seem to wake Kessel up very much as he went pointless, a rare feat of late for a guy who had 10 goals and 13 assists in the 12 games prior to last night. It didn't really work for the Leafs either as they lost 4-1.
