After the Pittsburgh Penguins scored eight goals in five games during their Eastern Conference First Round loss to the New York Rangers last season, they acquired high-scoring forward Phil Kessel on July 1.
One player happy with the move is Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who won't have to face Kessel anymore.
"[Kessel is] very talented, very fast," Fleury told the Penguins website Friday. "One less guy I have to worry about playing against. It'll be good to have him with the group of guys that we have and maybe make practice a little tougher with all these guys that we have up front."
