Video: Kessel scores rare goal against his former team

Phil Kessel

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel opened the scoring tonight against the Boston Bruins with his ninth goal of the season.

He may have gotten a lucky bounce on the play as the puck appeared to go off a player on the Toronto bench prior to Kessel picking it up.

It was Kessel’s fourth career goal in 28 games against the Bruins - the team, which selected him fifth overall at the 2006 NHL Draft.

Leafs defenseman Cody Franson picked up an assist on the goal stretching his point streak to a career-best five games. Franson has one goal and five assists during the streak.
