Evgeni Malkin Lands Accidental Left To Phil Kessel’s Face During Bench Celebration (VIDEO)
It was a great time to be a Pittsburgh Penguins player after capturing their 2nd straight Stanley Cup…unless you were Phil Kessel—in which case, it was painful.
Immediately after Carl Hagelin scored an empty-net goal in Game 6, which sealed the club’s second straight Stanley Cup championship, Evgeni Malkin went to celebrate with teammates. In the midst of doing so, he caught teammate Phil Kessel in the face with a left hook.
