Phil Kessel was the talk of the Pittsburgh Penguins game at the Vancouver Canucks.

Not because of a nice goal, but instead a type of play that few had seen before. Kessel fired a puck at the Canucks net that hit crossbar so hard that it flew back 40 feet into the Pittsburgh Penguins bench. The play happened during the second period of the game.
