Fans Troll Kessel for "Night Fishing" Tweet

Apparently, Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel likes "night fishing."
But Leafs fans like playoff hockey more.

So when Kessel recently tweeted his love for nighttime angling, Leafs Nation got nasty.

All of Kessel's tweets related to night fishing have since been deleted. Quel surprise.
