Pens ride Jarry to 2-0 win over Coyotes in Kessel's return

PITTSBURGH (AP) Phil Kessel drank in the moment in the most Phil Kessel way. He tried to avoid it.

Yet as the standing ovation the Arizona Coyotes forward received in his return to Pittsburgh wore on Friday night, the mercurial forward who helped the Penguins to a pair of Stanley Cups couldn't escape it even as he tried to hide on the bench. So Kessel finally caved, skating onto the ice and bashfully raising his stick as a show of respect to the sellout crowd.

"You know me, I'm not the biggest for that," Kessel said. "But like I said, it was nice of them to do that. I appreciate it."
