It seems selfish when you see Kessel streaking down the ice completely open but if you look at the play again, you'll see that Lupul was completely focused on going after the puck in the neutral zone, trying to get the puck deep into the Isles zone and hopefully scoring the empty net to seal the game off. He had his head down the entire time so it's extremely likely that he never saw Kessel break the other way and follow him up the ice. By the time Lupul looks up, it's when he took the shot into the Isles zone and then he saw Kessel move up the ice to get the puck and followed him in for support. The look on Lupul's face after the goal gave me the impression that he was both impressed and appreciative of Kessel's hustle on that play.
