Pens Rupp knows a good coach when he sees one

+

Eight years ago as a rookie on the New Jersey Devils, Rupp became a most unlikely Stanley Cup hero. A blue-collar banger, Rupp appeared in just four games that postseason. But in the biggest game of 2003, the late Pat Burns had his biggest player in the lineup. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Rupp rewarded his legendary coach by scoring what proved to be the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Cup finals to give Burns his first and only championship. The Devils' opponents in that game? The Anaheim Ducks and Dan Byslma.
