Kessel ripped off a power-play goal and two assists (one of those on the man advantage as well) in Thursday's series-ending Game 5 win against Columbus.

He was a monster in this opening series, racking up eight points alongside 19 shots and a plus-7 rating. Kessel exploded in the postseason last year en route to the Stanley Cup, and he's picked up right where he left off.
