PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — NBC Sports Network NHL analyst Brian Engblom joined The Fan Morning Show on Thursday to offer his thoughts on the Stanley Cup Final and the Penguins’ offseason.

He said that game four between the Bruins and Blackhawks wasn’t the sort of game that a coach would enjoy, but that it certainly didn’t fail to entertain the fans.

He feels that Dan Bylsma is one of the best coaches in the league, and that Bylsma’s staff has done a terrific job with this team, despite the disappointing end to the 2013 season.

He sees the constant pressure to perform as a natural consequence of the Penguins being a perpetually elite team, and he thinks that Bylsma “welcomes the pressure.”

He suspects that Kris Letang may end up getting less money in free agency than many expect the star defenseman to get.
