Penguins coach Mike Sullivan showed a little more chill with his gamesmanship this morning, as he ruled goalie Marc-Andre Fleury out for Game 3 and described his status as “still day to day” while naming Matt Murray as an option …

Sullivan’s analysis

These coach press conferences in the playoffs can often be a big waste of time, but not today. Of course Mike Sullivan didn’t give any meaningful updates on his lineup. Marc-Andre Fleury is still day to day. Matt Murray was …

Rangers Game 2 postgame

Mike Sullivan’s assessment of the five-minute stretch where the Penguins gave up three goals, ultimately leading to their downfall today in Game 2 against the Rangers, was interesting. “We had probably a five or six-minute span in the second period …

Flyers postgame

The end of the regular season affords us the opportunity to step back and truly admire a tale of two seasons. For better or worse, neither the players nor coach Mike Sullivan are particularly interested in big-picture reflection on the …

Coach Mike Sullivan said Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang won’t play today in the regular season finale in Philadelphia. Crosby is out with “bumps and bruises.” Letang is a healthy scratch. Call-up Kael Mouillierat will take Crosby’s spot in the …
