NHL Playoffs: Madison’s Kessel Ties East Finals For Pittsburgh

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Pittsburgh, PA) ¬†— ¬†Madison area native Phil Kessel scores the game’s only goal, as the Pittsburgh Penguins tie the NHL’s Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece with a 1-0 home win against Ottawa. Kessel scored his only shot on goal with almost seven minutes left, shooting the puck past Craig Anderson’s left pad. That ended three scoreless games for Kessel, although he has six goals so far in 14 playoff contests. Former Wisconsin Badger Justin Schultz of Pittsburgh left in the first period of Monday night’s game with an apparent arm injury after he crashed hard into the back boards. Game Three of the best of seven East Finals is set for tomorrow night in Ottawa.
