Bylsma: ‘I haven’t won a lot of things since I was in high school.’

Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, reflecting on the circuitous path that led him to his first Stanley Cup championship as a player or coach, told the Grand Rapids Press “I haven’t won something other than my son in knee hockey in the basement. I haven’t won a lot of things since I was in high school.”

His path, of course, included the Mighty Ducks’ Game 7 loss to the New Jersey Devils in the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals. A nice read if you generally root for underdogs.
