I love the guy but he's avoiding contact like he's playing the Bruins tonight, it's kinda strange even for Kessel.

Hopefully we come out better in the third.
Hint: He's playing the league leading team in hits tonight.

Also Rinaldo said he would take his head off before the game. Smart move.

Philly probably can't wait to start the third. This will be a nail biter.

I somewhat agree.

He had a shaky first 10 minutes or so, but he has been solid since.

Even aside from his 2 assists he has been strong defensively.

The Leafs are not built around Phil Kessel. He's our best offensive player but I don't see how anyone could argue we've built the team around him.

Agreed that wasn't his fault after seeing it for the second time. However this still hasn't been a good game. Still say this is his second worst game.
