GM Rutherford looks to retool after "puzzling" Pens exit

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jim Rutherford is not ready to blow up the core that's led the Pittsburgh Penguins to three Stanley Cups in a little more than a decade.

Still, the longtime general manager understands there's some serious retooling necessary following a second straight playoff flameout.

The issue isn't just that the Penguins have lost nine of their past 10 postseason games. It's the way in which they have lost them that's left Rutherford "puzzled."
