Penguins New Coach Meets With Media

Pittsburgh Penguins Interim Head Coach Dan Bylsma met with the media to talk about his new job. He said being called up from the minors to coach was different that being called up from the minors to play. He says he is confident that he can get the job done. Bylsma already is familiar with many of the players already because some of them played for him in the minors and during training camp former coach Michel Therrien allowed him to run a practice and run some drills. Bylsma said that when he spoke with the players before his first game he was happy with the body language that he saw. Bylsma joined the Penguins as an assistant coach in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 2006 and was in his first year as head coach before he was called up to coach the Penguins. The Baby Penguins were 35-16-1-2 with Bylsma as the head coach.
