The band is back together.

Monday, former Maple Leafs teammates Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf reunited in Pittsburgh, dining with one another during a boys night out that apparently included "free dinner." The former Leafs captain shared a photo of the two on his Instagram account, calling Kessel one of his "best friends in the game."



Although Kessel seemed a little harsh (jokingly) on Phaneuf there, the winger infamously came to his then captain's defence in a rant where he ripped media members for the way they criticized the defenceman.

It was a bold move, and it definitely could explain why Phaneuf thinks of Kessel as one of his best friends in the league.
