Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Undergoes core muscle surgery
DeSmith had core muscle surgery Friday and will miss the remainder of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
While DeSmith should be ready for the start of the 2021-22 campaign, the 30-year-old netminder is set to hit free agency this offseason and this injury could reduce the number of suitors vying for his services. In the meantime, with Tristan Jarry (foot) yet to resume skating, Louis Domingue will have to carry the load for the Penguins in the playoffs.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Unavailable Thursday
DeSmtih (lower body) will not be in the lineup against the Rangers on Thursday.
Coach Mike Sullivan still classified DeSmtih as day-to-day but his absence will force Louis Domingue to make his first career postseason start. If Tristan Jarry (foot) is still sidelined when DeSmtih is cleared to play, the 30-year-old New Hampshire native should be the preferred option between the pipes.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Deemed day-to-day
DeSmith is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
DeSmith exited Tuesday's Game 1 win over the Rangers in the second overtime after turning aside 48 of 51 shots. He was replaced by Louis Domingue, who stopped all 17 shots he faced en route to a huge victory for the Penguins. Tristan Jarry (foot) is still on the shelf, so if DeSmith is unavailable for Thursday's Game 2 versus New York, look for Domingue to get the start in goal.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Leaves game in second overtime
DeSmith (lower body) exited Tuesday's Game 1 versus the Rangers in the second overtime, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
DeSmith appeared to be laboring slightly as he went to the locker room. With Tristan Jarry (foot), already out, the Penguins are down to third-string goalie Louis Domingue if DeSmith is forced to additional time. Prior to his exit, DeSmith stopped 48 of 51 shots.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Defending cage Tuesday
DeSmtih will tend the twine for Tuesday's Game 1 road clash with the Rangers, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
DeSmith will be making his eighth appearance in the Penguins' last 10 contests due to the absence of Tristan Jarry (foot). In those outings, the 30-year-old DeSmtih is 4-2-1 with a 2.42 GAA and .933 save percentage. With Jarry ruled out for Game 2 on Thursday as well, DeSmith figures to get the nod for that matchup too, though the team hasn't officially named a starter.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Collects win Friday
DeSmith made 33 saves in Friday's 5-3 win over the Blue jackets.
A couple late power-play goals for Columbus made the final score deceivingly close, as DeSmith cruised to a win after Pittsburgh handed him a 3-0 lead before seven minutes had elapsed in the first period. Tristan Jarry (foot) still lacks a timetable for his return, so it will be DeSmith leading the Penguins into the postseason after going 4-2-1 in his last seven starts with a 2.42 GAA and .933 save percentage....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: First goalie off Friday
DeSmith was the first goalie to leave the ice at Friday's game-day skate, Pens Inside Scoop reports, indicating he'll be in goal at home versus Columbus.
DeSmith will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing performance against Edmonton on Tuesday in which he gave up four goals on 41 shots (.902 save percentage). As long as Tristan Jarry (foot) remains unavailable, DeSmith figures to be the preferred option between the pipes for the Penguins heading into the playoffs.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Can't stop McDavid
DeSmith allowed four goals on 41 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Oilers. Edmonton's fifth goal was an empty-netter.
Edmonton overwhelmed DeSmith with a barrage of shots, and he had no answer for Connor McDavid in particular. McDavid assisted on each of the Oilers' first three goals before potting the fourth himself. With Tristan Jarry's return timeline from a broken foot still uncertain, DeSmith's likely to open the playoffs atop Pittsburgh's goaltending depth chart after Friday's regular-season finale against Columbus....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Exits ice first Tuesday
DeSmith was the first goalie to leave the ice at Tuesday's game-day skate, Pens Inside Scoop reports, indicating he'll patrol the blue point at home versus Edmonton.
DeSmith will have to carry the load for the Penguins for the time being, including possibly into the postseason, while Tristan Jarry (foot) remains on the shelf. In his last five outings, the 30-year-old DeSmith is sporting a 3-1-1 record and 1.97 GAA, including an impressive 52-save shutout performance against the Bruins on April 21.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Cruises to win over Wings
DeSmith turned aside 23 shots in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Wings.
Detroit actually tied the game at 2-2 early in the second period, but Pittsburgh dominated the rest of the way as DeSmith shut the door. With Tristan Jarry sidelined due to a broken foot, DeSmith will have to carry the load in the crease for the Penguins heading into the playoffs, but his 2.72 GAA and .915 save percentage on the season aren't encouraging....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Starting in Detroit
DeSmith will defend the blue paint during Saturday's road game versus the Red Wings, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
DeSmith was fantastic in his last start Thursday against the Bruins, stopping all 52 shots he faced en route to a 4-0 win and his third shutout of the year. He'll try to secure his 10th victory of the season in a road matchup with a middling Detroit team that's averaging 3.20 goals per game at home this year, 15th in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Sets career mark for saves in win
DeSmith made 52 saves in a 4-0 win over Boston on Thursday.
This was DeSmith's second consecutive start in place of starter Tristan Jarry, who is week-to-week with a lower-body injury, and it was a beauty. DeSmith set a career-high single-game total Thursday; his previous best was 48 saves in a win against Boston on Dec. 14, 2018.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Starting Thursday
DeSmith will be between the pipes Thursday against visiting Boston, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
DeSmith fell to the Bruins 2-1 in his last start Sunday, turning aside 27 of 29 shots. He'll look to get revenge (and back in the win column for the ninth time this season) against a Boston squad that's scored more than two goals just once in the last six games.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Tough loss to Boston
DeSmith stopped 27 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.
Both goals came in the first 121 seconds of the first period, and while DeSmith shut the door the rest of the way, the Penguins' offense couldn't get much going. With Tristan Jarry recovering from a broken bone in his foot, Pittsburgh may have to lean heavily on DeSmith down the stretch and into the postseason, but the 30-year-old's 2.89 GAA and .907 save percentage on the season are far from elite....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: In goal Saturday
DeSmith will get the starting nod versus Boston on the road Saturday, Dave Molinari of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
DeSmith's numbers this season have been less than stellar, as he is 8-4-5 with a career-worst 2.94 GAA and .906 save percentage. Still, the Penguins will have no choice but to rely on the 30-year-old goaltender while Tristan Jarry (lower body) is sidelined and Louis Domingue steps into the backup role.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Takes shootout loss Tuesday
DeSmith stopped 33 of 37 shots through overtime in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Islanders.
DeSmith gave up two goals apiece to Josh Bailey and Zach Parise, but he got revenge on Parise in the first round of the shootout. Unfortunately for DeSmith, Kyle Palmieri was successful on New York's ensuing attempt, while none of Pittsburgh's shooters managed to solve Ilya Sorokin. This result drops DeSmith's record to 8-4-5.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: In goal Tuesday
DeSmith will get the starting nod on the road against the Islanders on Tuesday.
DeSmith will be making consecutive starts for just the second time this season but with starter Tristan Jarry mired in a five-game losing streak, coach Mike Sullivan probably didn't have much of a choice other than going back to DeSmith. On the year, the 30-year-old is sporting an 8-4-4 record along with a 2.89 GAA and two shutouts in 20 outings.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Snags OT win over Nashville
DeSmith stopped 33 shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Predators.
The 30-year-old goalie remains firmly behind Tristan Jarry on the Penguins' depth chart, but DeSmith hasn't taken a regulation loss in his last three starts, going 2-0-1 with a sharp 2.45 GAA and .922 save percentage in four appearances over that stretch. If Pittsburgh decides Jarry needs some extra rest ahead of the playoffs, DeSmith seems ready to step in.... See More ... See Less
