Phil Kessel Wires Wrist Shot Into Net as Penguins Advance – Also Rides Hot Dog

By Anthony Blake

The one player who has taken a noticeable jump in play from the regular season to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Pittsburgh Penguins has been Phil Kessel.

He’s been a lethal weapon on the power play, as evidenced by this wicked wrist shot that was telegraphed into the twine, helping the Pens to dispatch of the Columbus Blue Jackets and advance in the playoffs.

Nice guy. Tries hard. Wires pucks. #StanleyCup

And apparently Kessel’s got an affinity for hot dogs as well.

Or at least this ink would lead you to believe as much.

Though it was intended to be in ’50s pinup style, all it really achieved was a haunting image of Phil the Thrill – on a hot dog.

You know that won’t just wash off in the shower, right?
