  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Hangs on for win against Rangers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/19) DeSmith stopped 39 of 44 shots in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Rangers.

    All three periods followed the same pattern -- Pittsburgh would jump out to a lead before New York squared things up by intermission, and the Rangers simply ran out of time to close the gap after the Pens grabbed a 6-3 lead midway through the third. Despite the victory, DeSmith has now given up at least five goals in three of his last five starts, keeping him firmly behind Matt Murray on the depth chart.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Draws matinee start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/19) DeSmith will protect the home cage in Sunday's game versus the Rangers, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    DeSmith will return to the blue paint after relieving Matt Murray during Saturday's loss to the Flames. He has struggled since the calendar flipped to 2019, posting a 1-4-1 record and an ugly .887 save percentage in the process. DeSmith will look to buck that trend against the league's 25th-ranked offense, although the Rangers have scored 13 goals over the last three outings.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Holds down fort in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/19) DeSmith replaced Matt Murray to begin the third period Saturday and stopped all seven shots he faced in a 5-4 loss to the Flames.

    The Penguins were down 5-2 when DeSmith entered the game, and while they weren't able to complete the comeback, the 27-year-old gave them a chance with a couple of big early saves. Expect him to be between the pipes Sunday afternoon against the Rangers as DeSmith looks for only his second win in eight outings since the calendar flipped to 2019.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Yields five goals in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/19) DeSmith allowed five goals on 34 shots in a 5-4 loss to the Lightning on Saturday.

    That doesn't really speak to how well DeSmith played at times in this one. The first goal the Penguins gave up came in a 2-on-0 situation, where DeSmith had no chance, and the Penguins also gave up their league-leading 12th shorthanded marker. For the most part, DeSmith played well enough to keep Pittsburgh close in the third period. Still, owners can't like his 1-4-1 record and .877 save percentage since Jan. 6. Overall, he is 13-10-5 with a 2.78 GAA and .916 save percentage this season.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: In goal Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/19) DeSmith will get the starting nod on the road versus the Lightning on Saturday.

    DeSmith will appear in consecutive games for the first time since mid-December due to an injury to Matt Murray (upper body), who is at least healthy enough to serve as the backup. The 27-year-old DeSmith will be making his 31st appearance in the nets for the Pens this season, having gone 13-9-5 with two shutouts and a 2.69 GAA. The New Hampshire native could see some extra work down the stretch in order to keep Murray rested for a postseason run.
