Phil Kessel booed in return to Toronto

5 Comments

Phil Kessel was expecting to be booed in his return to Toronto, and he was right.

Kessel is playing in his first game at the Air Canada Center since the off-season trade that saw him go from Toronto to Pittsburgh, and the fans got on him early.

At least they weren’t too vicious:

Penguins forward Chris Kunitz opened the scoring in the first period.

Pittsburgh currently leads 1-0.
