Jarry turned aside 30 shots in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Hurricanes. Pittsburgh took a 2-1 lead into the second period but it was all Carolina from there, and Jarry could do little to stem the tide. The 24-year-old has now coughed up 11 goals in his last two starts and 18 in his last four, losing all of them, and while the Pens' defensive zone play has more to do with that rough patch than Jarry's own performance, it's still giving Matt Murray a golden opportunity to reclaim the No. 1 job in net.
Jarry will draw the home start for Sunday's afternoon matchup with Carolina. The 24-year-old will get his first start since Feb. 29, where he stopped 27 of 32 shots in a 5-0 loss to San Jose. In his past five starts, Jarry has gone 2-3-0 along with a 3.01 GAA and .901 save percentage. He'll likely be busy in net Sunday, as the Hurricanes sit third in the league in shots per game this campaign (33.2).
Jarry gave up five goals on 32 shots in a 5-0 loss to the Sharks on Saturday. The Penguins' skid reached six games as a team, and their offense hit a new low. Jarry suffered his third straight defeat, falling to 20-11-1 with a 2.31 GAA and a .924 save percentage through 32 appearances. Expect head coach Mike Sullivan to keep rotating Jarry and Matt Murray evenly -- the two netminders have alternated for the last 12 contests.
Jarry will be in goal for Saturday's road game in San Jose, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Jarry is looking to get back on track after dropping back-to-back starts. Prior to losing two in a row, the Penguins' netminder had reeled off four straight wins. The Sharks reside near the bottom of the standings, so on paper, this is a great matchup for the 24-year-old netminder.
Jarry gave up two goals on 22 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Kings. Jarry has now lost his last two starts after a recent four-game winning streak. The 24-year-old fell to 20-10-1 with a 2.23 GAA and a .927 save percentage through 31 appearances. Jarry should get one more start on the Penguins' road trip -- either Friday in Anaheim or Saturday in San Jose.
