Sullivan, 48, took over as Penguins coach after Mike Johnston was fired on Dec. 12, 2015. The Penguins finished the season 33-16-5 and won the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in their history with a six-game series win against the San Jose Sharks in the Stanley Cup Final. "Mike did the best coaching job in the NHL last season," Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said in a statement. "He continues to be a terrific coach and we are happy to give him a well-deserved extension." The Penguins are 22-8-5 this season, one point behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for first place in the Metropolitan Division, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
