The last thing the Pittsburgh Penguins need right now is a rift between two of their top forwards. 

On Monday night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final, frustration seemed to boil over between teammates Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin as the two men came off the ice after a shift.

Kessel appeared to be in pain as he was headed back to the bench and he could be seen shouting something at Malkin although it's hard to make out what was being said. 

Whatever it was it appeared to set off Malkin who looked furious on the bench, causing head coach Mike Sullivan to step in as he attempted to calm down Evgeni Malkin. 

To be fair to Malkin, Kessel has seemed frustrated all night as you can see in the video below.
