Saturday night Phil Kessel put on a show that sent the Ottawa Senators home angry and the Leafs Nation home happy.
Kessel scored three goals and added an assist in the Leafs 6-3 win over the Sens. A game in which the Leafs trailed 2-0 in the second period.

The USA jerseys represent JVR and Kessel, obviously . . .
After seeing the rosters for both teams, many expected fireworks. And by fireworks, I mean fights, fights and more fights. Colton Orr, Frazer McLaren and Matt Kassian were all in the lineup, setting up what looked like a rough game before the puck even dropped. Then the Leafs put Orr in the starting lineup and things looked even worse.
But, just like so many games before, the facepunchers barely got on the ice, turning this game into a competition between three lines. McLaren played 58 seconds and Orr played 2:27.
But their lack of ice time was a blessing in disguise as the Leafs offence dominated after the Senators went up 2-0, with Kessel recording a hat trick and the Leafs winning the game 6-3.

I don't have the 'Key Statistics' denoting the differences between Toronto and Ottawa tonight, in part because as we've seen with the Leafs, the laws of mathematics do not apply*. What I do have is a pretty fun graph looking at Jonathan Bernier's season. He's had a pretty historic run so far, and I'd go out of my way to say it's one of the best seasons by a Leafs goaltender of all-time.
