OTTAWA -- OK, so here's how this works: If Mike Sullivan declares that the Earth is flat, then we burn all our textbooks and begin anew.
If Sullivan declares that jaywalking should be banned from Downtown Pittsburgh, then we finally install light bulbs in all those Walk/Don't Walk signs.
Heck, if Sullivan declares that Gary Bettman's NHL has the most competent, consistent officiating in all of professional sports ...
... eh, you got my point before that, right?
Good, because this particular point's never been pounded home with more authority, with more conviction than what this extraordinary coach just displayed Friday night by going against a wheat-field's load of grain in pushing his Penguins to a prodigiously complete performance against the Senators in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final at Canadian Tire Centre.
