from Shawn P. Roarke of NHL.com,

On the first of two days with the Stanley Cup, a day Mike Sullivan wasn't sure would ever come, the Pittsburgh Penguins coach refused to occupy the limelight.

Instead, Sullivan insisted the people who helped him write his story and the people who will write the next chapters of the long and glorious history of the Stanley Cup be the center of attention.

That was the mandate he and his wife of 25 years, Kate, had as they sat down and planned out his two-day itinerary with the trophy.

"We wanted to share it with as many people as we can that have had an influence in our life, but also the next generation coming up," Sullivan said during the first stop, at Boston College High School, during a jam-packed itinerary Wednesday that also included stops at Boston University and Marshfield Country Club before a private gathering at the Sullivan home. "I think [the Stanley Cup] is a great inspiration."
