PHN EXTRA: Sullivan Embraced On His Return To Penguins



CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The deep voice with the Boston accent is always easy to pick up when Mike Sullivan is on the ice. The coach’s return and presence were notable Friday at Pittsburgh Penguins practice at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex.

Sullivan was on the ice with his familiar black ballcap and whistle after taking a leave following the death of his father, George, Saturday.

“It’s good to have him back,” team captain Sidney Crosby said. “It’s been a tough week for him. We’re happy to have him back and try to make things as easy as possible on him.”

Part of that welcome was a crisp, upbeat practice.
