  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Tallies two points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/19/18) Kessel scored a goal and had a helper in a 5-0 victory over the Flyers in Wednesday's Game 4.

    Somewhat surprisingly, this was Kessel's first goal of the postseason. Though the Penguins have been killing the Flyers, Kessel hasn't really gotten in on the fun yet. However, the American winger had 34 goals and a career-high 92 points this season, so there's no reason to worry about him.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Collects assist Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/18) Kessel contributed an assist during a 5-1 victory Sunday during Game 3 against Philadelphia.

    Despite Pittsburgh scoring 13 goals over its first three games, this was Kessel's first point of the series, as his line hasn't had success much offensive success at even strength. During the first three games, Philadelphia has been racking up minor penalties resulting in Kessel averaging a whopping 7:25 of power-play time per game, making it relatively surprising he hasn't more of an impact on the statsheet, especially since he led the NHL in the regular season with 42 points on the man advantage. Head coach Mike Sullivan was also experimenting during parts of Game 2 by placing Kessel with Carl Hagelin and Evgeni Malkin, and if Kessel is permanently bumped up to the second line, more five-on-five points would likely be on the way.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Finishes campaign with 92 points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) Kessel scored a goal and added a power-play assist during Friday's 4-0 win over Ottawa.

    By suiting up Friday, Kessel has now played every game in each of the past eight seasons. His multi-point showing also upped his career-best point total to 92, and he reached the 30-goal plateau for the first time since the 2013-14 campaign. Additionally, his 18 playoff goals over the past two postseasons lead the league, so he projects to be a reliable asset in all playoff settings for the duration of Pittsburgh's quest for its third consecutive Stanley Cup.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Three-point performance Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) Kessel scored two goals, including the game-winner 1:06 into overtime, while adding an assist in Thursday's 5-4 victory over the Blue Jackets.

    His first tally came with the man advantage, tying his previous career high with 12 power-play goals on the season. Kessel's been running hot or cold down the stretch, posting four multi-point efforts over the last eight games but getting held off the scoresheet entirely three times. That hasn't stopped the 30-year-old from amassing a career-high 90 points on the season, however.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Toughing it out Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/18) Kessel (lower body) took pregame warmups and is expected to play Sunday evening for a home draw against the Capitals, Chase Williams of WPXI reports.

    Penguins coach Mike Sullivan deemed Kessel a game-time decision, but that's notoriously been his go-to designation for just about any injured player, and Phil the Thrill was on the ice for warmups to indicate that he'll play in this divisional contest. The 30-year-old from Madison, Wisconsin has 736 points (327 goals, 409 assists) through 911 career games between Boston, Toronto and Pittsburgh.
