A Pittsburgh Penguins fan went viral by putting video of Phil Kessel lifting the Stanley Cup to “My Heart Will Go On.”
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Phil Kessel won over hockey fans during the 2015-16 Stanley Cup playoffs due to his impressive play and his incredible generosity. Even fans of other teams fell in love with Kessel.
A new video made by a Pittsburgh Penguins fan is only going to make people love Kessel even more. The fan put clips of Kessel to Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On”, and of course it ends with Kessel lifting the Stanley Cup.

It’s hard to imagine that anyone could make Kessel lifting the Stanley Cup any more emotional than it was, but adding the theme song from Titanic, one of the most emotional and sappy movies of all-time, is one way to do it. Good luck watching that video without laughing and/or crying.
Kessel helped lead the Penguins to their fourth Stanley Cup victory by leading the team in goals during the playoffs. The forward line that he was on, the HBK line, was extremely important to the Penguins. When Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin struggled, the HBK line consistently came through for them.
