Mike Sullivan quotes

Jun 06 2017

We believe that we have some guys that are due to score some goals here. They've had some high-quality chances, and the puck hasn't gone in the net for the last couple of games. We believe if we continue to try to do the right things out there, we'll score. We haven't lost games because of our goaltending.feedback

Jun 06 2017

Obviously, it's hard to win when you score one goal, but having said that, I thought tonight of all the games we played, we generated the most chances and the highest quality. It didn't go in the net for us. We had a number of grade-A opportunities, a couple of breakaways, flurries around the net, so there were a lot of things from a process standpoint that we really liked.feedback

Jun 05 2017

This coaching staff has never been one to take our team out of the flow to try to chase matchups. We believe in the group we have. We know they can play against anybody. When they're at their best, regardless of who their opponent is, they're going to have their hands full.feedback

Jun 04 2017

Their numbers speak for themselves. They've produced consistently for this team all year long and throughout the course of these playoffs. There's no doubt that we believe they will continue that.feedback

Jun 03 2017

I thought we gave them a couple of freebies where we didn't force them to have to work for it and that's an area we've got to be better moving forward. We're disappointed we didn't get the result, but we also understand that this is a series. Our guys, they've been through this. They can draw on their experience. We're not going to let this certainly get us down. We're going to learn from it, move by it and get ready for the next game.feedback

Jun 03 2017

He's got tons of speed. He's a real good penalty killer. I think he forces turnovers all over the ice because of his speed and his puck pursuit game. Haggy is a good player. He's been a big part of this team all year. He's helped us win a lot of games.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I think players love to play in buildings that have tons of energy. I think our building at home has had tons of energy throughout the course of the playoffs. I know our guys are looking forward to the opportunity. I think we've got to embrace it. ... This is the best environment to play in, when there's a lot of buzz, a lot of energy in the building.feedback

Jun 02 2017

Our focus is really on our team. We're not overly concerned about what our opponents are saying or what they're doing. Our focus is on our team, how we need to play in order to have success.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I don't think we've played our best. I think the third period of Game 2 was probably our best period of this series. Not probably, it has been our best period of the series. It's about playing to our identity, it's about winning puck battles, it's about using our quickness and our speed, it's about counterattack mentality. I think that's when our team is at its very best.feedback

Jun 02 2017

We're trying to make it decisions whether it be defense pairs or line combinations that make us the most competitive team.feedback

Jun 01 2017

I think we're a scrappy group. It's not always pretty, but this group is resilient. We're competitive.feedback

Jun 01 2017

He's an inspiring guy for our team. He plays his best when the stakes are high, he's a great shot-blocker, he's a brave kid. When he comes back on the bench I know it gives our whole bench a boost. Those are the types of plays that help teams win, especially at this time of year. That was a big part of the game for us.feedback

Jun 01 2017

When the plays are there, his instincts will take over. He's a real talented kid.feedback

Jun 01 2017

I think we have to embrace the energy that's going to be in the city and in the building. We've just got to focus on those things that we can control, and that's going to be our competitive level, our attitude, our execution, all of those things within our control. That's where our focus is going to be.feedback

Jun 01 2017

I think Sid has a really nice way of making those guys feel comfortable when they come into our dressing room. The influence he has on these kids goes a long way to giving these kids the confidence that they need.feedback

May 30 2017

It's not always pretty. We don't get points for style. But what I love about our team is that we find ways to win, we compete.feedback

May 30 2017

None of us in our dressing room is fooled by the score tonight.feedback

May 29 2017

I don't think we ease anybody into the lineup. When our guys go into the lineup, they're ready to play. Period.feedback

May 27 2017

It's hard to win. This is the hardest trophy in sports, in my mind. It's a war of attrition. And I don't think any team has endured more injuries than this group of players has endured, and we continue to find ways to win.feedback

May 26 2017

I believe that the resolve and the resilience of this team is the strength of this team.feedback

May 26 2017

This group of players has a will to win as a group more so than any other group I've been around. They understand the opportunity to play this deep and compete for the Stanley Cup doesn't come around every year. And when it does, when a team like ours puts itself in the position like we have, we have to maximize this opportunity.feedback

May 26 2017

Our last four games in this series for me, we really found our game.feedback

May 26 2017

I couldn't be more proud of our team for just its 'sticktoitiveness'. The last four games of this series, we found our game.feedback

May 24 2017

I thought we played a real good game. I thought we dominated zone time. We had lots of chances. We didn't score tonight. The puck didn't go in the net, but if we continue to play the game that way, then I believe we'll get the result.feedback

May 23 2017 - Starbucks

Hornqvist, Kuhnhackl, and Ruhwedel stayed in Pittsburgh. They are rehabbing there. Schultz is in Ottawa but will not play tonight.feedback

May 21 2017

When we play the type of game we play tonight it allows us to dictate the terms and play the style and the identity of this Penguins team.feedback

May 20 2017

I think he leads by example and I thought he had one of his best games tonight. But it doesn't just stop with Sid, it goes down the bench.feedback

May 20 2017

I thought Matt was solid. He made some timely saves for us when we needed it. He has a calm demeanor about him. I thought he was tracking the puck extremely well. And certainly, he made a couple of key saves for us at key times.feedback

May 19 2017

I thought he was really solid in there. He's had a lot of practice time in the last couple of weeks. Marc was a professional like he always is. Both of these guys handle the decisions that we make extremely professionally. These guys are both competitors. They both want to be in the net. We don't always expect them to agree with our decisions, but we hope that they respect our decision.feedback

May 19 2017

It's very difficult. That's been a hard decision for this coaching staff all year long. It's a good, difficult decision to have because we have two guys that are as capable as they are.feedback

May 19 2017

Cash advances are almost always a bad idea. You can inadvertently get a cash advance, if you're not careful.feedback

May 18 2017

We have two great goalies. These guys have both helped us win games. They're terrific goalies. We're fortunate that we have these guys as part of our team. I've said this all year long -- that's one of the strengths of our group.feedback

May 18 2017

They're still day-to-day. They didn't skate with the team, they're probably not probable [for Game 4].feedback

May 18 2017

It's tough when you give up that many goals in the first period you don't really give yourself or your team a chance in the game. It wasn't like we gave up a lot of scoring chances, we didn't, but they all seemed to go in the net. For me, the takeaway is you can't lose the first period by four goals and think you're going to win. I just think we've got to be more ready to play from the drop of the puck.feedback

May 18 2017

I've said all along we have two great goalies. These guys have both helped us win games. They're terrific goalies, and we're fortunate that we have these guys as part of our team. I've said this all year long, we think that's one of the strengths of our group.feedback

May 18 2017

We'll announce that in the morning.feedback

May 17 2017

We're fortunate to have the depth that we have. Mark's a guy that has invaluable experience. He's a really savvy player. I think he could help us on our power play. He could help us get out of our end zone. He's a real good puck mover. I think he's got great puck skills. So, if Mark's the guy we go to, we know he can continue to help us win games.feedback

May 16 2017

Certainly, when you have the puck in the offensive zone and you force your opponents to have to expend energy defending you, it's hard for them to mount an offensive attack. Defense, from our estimation, it's not always just about playing in your end zone. It takes place 180 feet from your net if we're playing the game the right way.feedback

May 14 2017

He's fresh. He's had some real high-quality practice time.feedback

May 14 2017

It takes five guys out there working cooperatively to have success. Whether it be our play without the puck and our D-zone coverage or our neutral-zone forecheck or our play with the puck when it comes to breakouts, or our end-zone play or our power play, for that matter -- it's a collective effort that's what makes teams what they are, and I think our players understand it.feedback

May 14 2017

We encourage it, because I think it helps our game. I think progress is made. So we call it a man's argument. That's the way it is. I think lines go back and forth and talk to one another. I think it brings juice to the bench.feedback

May 14 2017

We had an opportunity to grab a lead. We didn't execute. The movement wasn't there. The passes weren't crisp.feedback

May 13 2017

We're looking for that next play instead of putting pucks at the net.feedback

May 08 2017

If Chad Ruhwedel plays tonight, we expect him to bring the game he's brought for us all year. He's a mobile guy, he can skate, he can get back to pucks, he helps us get out of our end zone. He defends really well with his stick. We expect him to play his game.feedback

May 08 2017

I thought he was solid. He's made save after save for us. The goals they scored were good goals. I think we can do a better job in front of him.feedback

May 06 2017

Some recover quicker than others, and I don't claim to know a whole lot about it and that's why we refer to the people that do.feedback

May 06 2017

We trust our doctors and the process that they go through, and when they tell us that these guys are healthy and are cleared to play, then that's all we need to know. The health and safety of our players is always the priority and that will never change. But we trust our medical staff, we trust the doctors that are monitoring these guys. They know way more about it than the rest of us do. And so, we rely on those guys to monitor these situations and advise us the right way. So I think that's the most prudent way to approach it and that's how we are.feedback

May 06 2017

I think it helps us build our team spirit, our camaraderie. It gives our players and our coaching staff a certain comfort level. We really appreciate the attention to detail and the effort that our equipment guys put in to try to make it feel like home.feedback

May 05 2017

We'll see how he responds (to practicing) and go from there. We trust our doctors. We trust our medical team, and when they tell us he's OK, we're confident Sid's good.feedback

May 04 2017

Sid skated this morning. He is in the process of rehabbing. We'll leave it at that. It's a day-to-day process.feedback

May 04 2017

Well like we always do, we tried to put line combinations together that we think will help us execute the game plan and have success. So that was the question we asked ourselves when we put together the combinations that we did. We made some in-game adjustments to our line combinations, based on how the game was being played and what we saw, and we went from there.feedback

May 04 2017

I'm not going to elaborate on the process he is going through, we really elaborate on our medical staff in that regard. These guys advise us and they're very good at what they do. So he is in the process right now, and will continue to be, and it will continue to be a day-to-day evaluation and we'll go from there.feedback

May 04 2017

He's a guy that finds ways to have success regardless of who we put him with. He has a complete game. He can play down low and grind. He has hockey sense. He can make plays off the rush. He plays with a lot of courage. He's not afraid to go to the net and take a cross check and bang a rebound and maybe get a stick on a deflection.feedback

May 03 2017

He's elevated his game at an important time. He's a competitive guy. He's a Stanley Cup-winning goaltender and I think he's showing it.feedback

May 02 2017

Sid has been diagnosed with a concussion. He will be out for tomorrow's game. We will evaluate him from there.feedback

May 02 2017

And when he does that, he's inspiring to his teammates and certainly his coaching staff. I can't say enough about Sid's leadership. I think his play speaks for itself. But I think his leadership through his example on a daily basis and the influence that he has on our young players and the rest of our group, I can't say enough for.feedback

May 02 2017

He's the best 200-foot player in the game, in my estimation. He plays at both ends of the rink. He defends as well as he plays with the puck and creates offense. He's a committed guy right now. I think he sees an opportunity for this team to have success, and I think he leads by example.feedback

May 02 2017

The nature of these things is they're all very different. Sometimes they come around quickly. Other times they don't.feedback

May 02 2017

He's very upbeat and he's very positive. We're very optimistic and we're hopeful that we'll get him back in a timely fashion.feedback

May 02 2017

He will go through the protocols that we always put our guys through when they've been diagnosed with a concussion. The nature of these things is that they are all very different. Sometimes they come around quickly, other times they don't. My experience of dealing with these in the past with players is that they are day-to-day things, and so we'll rely on our medical staff to advise us in the right way and our guys do a great job in that regard.feedback

May 01 2017

We've always said to our players, we have to be a team that generates offense in different ways. Moving forward, our hope is that we do a better job controlling territory so we don't have to rely on [the counterattack] as much.feedback

Apr 30 2017

I think we've got a gritty group out there, scrappy. It's not perfect by any stretch out there. We're aware of that, we know that. But what I love about this group of players is that they respond the right way and they've shown and ability to do that time and time again and I think this group finds ways to have success.feedback

Apr 12 2017

Matt's going to play tonight and we'll play it from there.feedback

Apr 05 2017

This was an accumulation of events over time. It wasn't any one incident when it occurred.feedback

Apr 05 2017

It doesn't really change our thought process. It really doesn't change our players in what their contributions need to be. We're not asking anybody to replace him.feedback

Feb 16 2017

The fact he scores the game winner is apropos, given he gets the 1,000th point in the game. I think the sky's the limit for Sid. I think he's that good of a player.feedback

Nov 07 2016

Nothing surprises us. He's just a great player. I don't know how else to say it. I think we've grown to expect it out of him and he's done it each and every night. I really admire his consistency of play.feedback

Nov 07 2016

I don't really think too much about drama.feedback

Nov 07 2016

I'm sure that team has taken another step and he's a big reason why.feedback

Oct 12 2016

We'll take it step-by-step and we're following the guidance of our medical team, and we'll go from there.feedback
