A Message From Mike Sullivan: Thank You, Pittsburgh

by Mike Sullivan @penguins / Pittsburgh Penguins Head Coach

Nine days. Just over one week. It seems longer, yet I can still hear the overwhelming applause from the 18,000-plus following Game 6 like it was yesterday. I always knew we had the best fans, but last Monday I realized why you are truly so special. Your support of our team in both good and bad times is remarkable. There's a lot of talk about new franchises, loud buildings and teams experiencing success for the first time, but no fans compare to Pittsburgh. Perhaps the rich history of Pittsburgh sports success has given you a different view. You are each an example of what it means to "win with dignity and lose with grace." The class you displayed on May 7 will stick with us forever.

I was thrilled for our players at your outpouring of support. I couldn't help but take a minute to soak it in myself. It was an unbelievable way to transition from fresh disappointment to overall pride. And we're so grateful that we made you proud. We fell short of our team goal, but it helped in that moment to know our fans appreciated what we had already achieved. The final moments of the season told me a lot about Pittsburgh.
