With seven minutes remaining in the game Kessel received the puck in stride from center Evgeni Malkin, took his shot that was blocked by J-G Pageau but fell right back to him and his second attempt found the way next to the mammoth of a still re-setting Craig Anderson. Pittsburgh managed to protect it's narrow lead and the goal became the game-winner.
Kessel is at a point-per-game rate with 14 points in as many games.
