  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Supplies assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/19) Kessel grabbed a helper and fired six shots on goal in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Flyers.

    Kessel has three goals and six assists in 10 games in March, with seven of the nine points coming with the man advantage. He's on a point-per-game pace this season, with 24 goals and 49 assists in 73 games, as well as 192 shots, but his minus-19 rating has put a slight drag on his fantasy value. Still, the winger is almost always a threat to produce points.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Two power-play points in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/19) Kessel scored a power-play goal and added a power-play helper as well in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Sabres.

    Sidney Crosby set Kessel up for a beautiful power-play marker early in the middle frame, giving Kessel 11 goals and 32 power-play points in 2018-19. After going 16 straight without a goal, the stocky forward has scored three times in his last five games and sits at 24 snipes and 71 points in 71 appearances this season.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Pots game-winner against Caps

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/19) Kessel scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Capitals.

    His third-period tally proved to be the game-winner. Kessel now has two goals and 12 points in the last 13 games, and the veteran winger has already reached the 70-point plateau for the third straight season while firing home at least 20 goals for a remarkable 11th straight campaign.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Big goal ends massive drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/19) Kessel ended a 16-game goal drought Thursday when he sniped the game-winner in a 3-0 victory over Columbus.

    Kessel scored his first goal since Jan. 30; it came on the power play. Snipers do go through droughts, but this one was a doozy. Still, Kessel is clipping along at a point-per-game pace. Hopefully this snipe starts a sweet little run for the talented winger.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Goal drought continues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/19) Kessel notched an assist versus Florida on Tuesday, but saw his goal drought extend to 16 games.

    Kessel's inability to find the back of the net hasn't been from a lack of trying, as he registered 38 shots in those 13 contests, including five Tuesday. The Pens will obviously need the elite sniper to start scoring if they are going to make a deep playoff run, but his offensive contributions (11 assists during his slump) do help mitigate the fact that he can't seem to get one over the goal line.
