Reaction after Pittsburgh beat San Jose

Monday, June 13 2016 by SNTV
  • Postgame sound after the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the San Jose Sharks

    SOUNDBITE (English): Peter DeBoer, Sharks head coach

    "Well, I think first off, you have to give full credit to Pittsburgh. I thought they came out and played a hell of a series. They played their game for much longer stretches than we were able to. They dictated the play. They started quicker than us. That's the reason they're holding the Cup. On our end, I'm very proud of our group. I thought our guys emptied the tank, gave us everything they possibly could. We weren't as good as them during this two‑week period."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Sidney Crosby, Penguins centre

    (says he wasn't thinking back to the side's Stanley Cup win in 2009 when he held up the trophy after winning this time)

    "I wasn't really thinking about '09 that much. I was just thinking about how hard it was to get to this point, just trying to enjoy every second of it. It's not easy to get here. Having won seven years ago at a young age, you probably take it for granted a little bit. You don't think you do at the time, but it's not easy to get to this point. Just try to enjoy it the best I can."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Mike Sullivan, Penguins head coach

    (talks about Sidney Crosby)

    "I think it places him up there with the greats of the game of all time. He's that good in my mind. I've said all along here through the course of the playoffs, he's deserving of the Conn Smythe. His numbers don't indicate the impact he had on helping this team win, or the impact he had on a game-to-game basis. He was a great leader for our team. It started by example with his performance and how he played. He's a complete player. He plays at both ends of the rink. He's a great faceoff guy. He kills penalties when we need him to. He plays in all the key situations. I could tell as we went through this post-season that he knew that our team had something special. He was going to will this thing. I thought he was just terrific throughout the course of this post-season."
