  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Comes up big against Carolina

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/16) Kessel netted his 16th goal Friday against the Hurricanes.

    He took seven shots, his highest total in more than three months since he registered seven shots Nov. 11. Kessel briefly left the game during the third period, when an errant skate appeared to clip his chest. Carolina was on the power play at the time, however, so he didn't miss a shift. Pens coach Mike Sullivan recently said that the team needs Kessel to score with greater frequency and the sniper responded Friday. He now has 15 points (5G, 10A) in his last 18 games.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Finding his groove

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/16) Kessel has scored 11 points (4G, 7A) in 12 games since Dec. 31.

    Scoring is up in Pittsburgh and Kessel finally producing at a clip the organization envisioned after dealing for the former Leaf last summer. The forward has also picked up four of his nine power-play points in the last nine games. Kessel makes for a decent option Tuesday -- he's scored 25 goals and 25 assists in 52 career contests against the Senators.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Strong play continues into break

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/26/16) Kessel went top shelf for his 15th goal of the season Tuesday against New Jersey.

    He converted a pretty 2-on-1 pass from linemate Carl Hagelin, giving him three goals and nine points in his last nine games.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Snaps scoring slump

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/16) Kessel collected two goals -- including his fifth game-winner -- in the Pens' 4-3 victory over Philadelphia on Thursday.

    The winger had scored only five goals in 31 games prior to Thursday's outburst. Pens coach Mike Sullivan talked to Kessel about finding areas of the ice to shoot and the advice paid dividends. Kessel and linemate Carl Hagelin converted on a 2-on-1, showing good chemistry. The combination is likely one of the swiftest in the NHL.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Grabs two assists in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/16) Kessel dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Hurricanes.

    Kessel helped set up the game's opening goal just four minutes in, then later picked up his second point on the man advantage toward the end of the second period. The 28-year-old has tallied five assists in the last five games, but his overall pace remains down in his first season in Pittsburgh.
