Seven months ago, Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan didn't have an NHL job. Today, Sullivan was on the horn with the Leader of the Free World.

President Barack Obama contacted Sullivan to congratulate him and the Penguins on their Stanley Cup title, and not surprisingly, Sullivan was excited with the call.

In a perfect piece of symmetry, Obama noted Pittsburgh won the Cup in his first year of presidency (2009), and repeated the feat in his last.
