The franchise added some new faces on the roster and in the coaching box but like some other teams the Penguins have had some covid issues in camp. Head coach Mike Sullivan says they’ve got them under control and its something they were ready for.
“This is something that coaches staffs are going to have to be prepared for and adjust. We had a plan mapped out from training camp to game one. We’ve thought through the process extensively. We’ve thought through what we do in the event something like this occurs.”
The Penguins have made the playoffs in all 5 of Mike Sullivan’s seasons.
