Creative Rutherford, blunt Sullivan key Penguins' turnaround

PITTSBURGH (AP) The door closed and Mike Sullivan started to talk. Over the course of the next 10 minutes, the Pittsburgh Penguins coach laid out for rookie goaltender Matt Murray why veteran Marc-Andre Fleury was starting Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals even though Murray's rapid maturation was one of the reasons Pittsburgh found itself two wins from a spot in the Stanley Cup Final.

When Sullivan was finished, Murray stood up and left without so much as a word. Really, there was no need to talk. Sullivan had explained himself so thoroughly that Murray didn't see the point of dragging it out. The fact Sullivan bothered to explain it to him at all was enough.

"With a lot of coaches, they kind of make a decision on the goalies and leave you to it (to figure out why)," Murray said. "Coach Sullivan is probably the best communicator of any coach I've ever had. ... I prefer it that way, you don't go back and say `What could I have done differently? What did I do wrong?'"
