PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins forward Phil Kessel isn't getting worked up about seeing some old friends this weekend.
Pittsburgh hosts Toronto on Saturday night, the first time Kessel will face the Maple Leafs since they sent him to the Penguins in July after six uneven years.
Kessel says he enjoyed his stay in Toronto but that it's time to move on. The three-time All-Star has one goal and one assist so far for Pittsburgh, which picked up its first win of the season on Thursday night against Ottawa.
Kessel says there are signs that the Penguins are ready to break out of their early season funk. Pittsburgh is 0 for 12 on the power play through four games.
