  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Little help from teammates

    DeSmith made 37 saves in a 4-1 loss to Toronto on Saturday.

    It was his first start since last Sunday when he was evaluated for an upper-body injury after making 29 saves in a win over Chicago. The loss wasn't on DeSmith -- his teammates came out flat in the first and the Pens were outshot 17-5 in the first period alone and outplayed most of the night. DeSmith is now 3-5-1 with a 3.00 GAA and .908 save percentage.

  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Starting Saturday

    DeSmith will start Saturday's home game against Toronto, Penguins team reporter Michelle Crechiolo reports.

    DeSmith made 29 saves in a 5-3 win over Chicago on Nov. 20 during his last outing. He has a 3-4-1 record this season with a 2.88 GAA and a .909 save percentage. DeSmith has posted a mark of 1-1-0 versus the Maple Leafs this year, stopping 56 of 62 shots.

  • Penguins' Ryan Poehling: Four points in last five games

    Poehling scored twice Friday in a 4-1 victory over the Flyers.

    He pushed the score to 3-0 early in the second when he redirected Teddy Blueger's point shot past Carter Hart. Poehling's second goal -- a stuff play where he picked up a loose puck from behind the net and jammed it over Hart's right skate -- chased the netminder from the net. He has just seven points in 21 games this season, but four of those, including three goals, have come in his last five contests. The Pens need a lot more effort and output from their lower lines, so things might might be starting to warm up with efforts like this.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Fourth win in row

    Jarry made 29 saves in a 4-1 win over the Flyers on Friday.

    Jarry carried a shutout to the mid-point of the third when Kevin Hayes got around Pens' defender Jeff Petry and fired a shot over the netminder's right shoulder from the crease. Jarry has won four straight games and sits 8-3-2 with a 2.90 GAA and .914 save percentage on the season.

  • Penguins' Teddy Blueger: Big game against Flyers

    Blueger delivered a three-assist game Friday in a 4-1 win over the Flyers.

    Blueger seemed to pick apart his cross-state rivals with deft feeds to Josh Archibald (one goal) and Ryan Poehling (two goals). He also had two shots, two hits and a blocked shot in 13:10 of ice time. The 28-year-old had just one assist in five games since his return from injured reserve at the mid-point of November, so this outburst was a welcome sight. Blueger delivered a career-best 28 points and 87 hits last season, which doesn't look like much on the surface. But there was a stretch last year when he delivered seven points in 10 games between mid-December and mid-January. Blueger may have the potential to deliver off the wire if he can carry forward some momentum from Friday.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Expected to face Flyers

    Jarry is slated to guard the road net against Philadelphia on Friday, per Rob Rossi of The Athletic.

    Jarry is 7-3-2 with a 3.06 GAA and .910 save percentage in 12 games this season. He's on a three-game winning streak and has saved 65 of 66 shots over his last two contests. He's got a solid opportunity to extend that hot streak given that the Flyers have the 32nd-ranked offense with 2.50 goals per game.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Streak ends but nets deciding play

    Malkin scored the deciding shootout goal Wednesday in a 2-1 win over Calgary.

    It was a beautiful backhand move that froze Dan Vladar. Unfortunately, Malkin had his point streak end at seven games (three goals, five assists), but he delivered three shots and two hits on the night. He has 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 20 games this season.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Third straight win

    Jarry made 33 saves in a 2-1 shootout win over Calgary on Wednesday.

    It was his 100th career win and third in a row. Dillon Dube was the only Flames player to beat him in regulation. It came on a deflection. During the shootout, Jarry made saves on Nazem Kadri and Mikael Backlund, and allowed goals from Jonathan Huberdeau and Rasmus Andersson. His season so far has been like bookends -- four wins to start the season and three straight now, with five losses (0-3-2) between. Jarry will likely settle into a more even routine soon.

  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Suiting up Wednesday

    DeSmith (upper body) will dress as the backup goalie Wednesday against Calgary, Penguins team reporter Michelle Crechiolo reports.

    DeSmith is fine after being held out of Tuesday's practice as a precaution. Tristan Jarry will be between the pipes for Wednesday's contest. DeSmith will probably get a start during Pittsburgh's back-to-back this weekend.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Starting Wednesday

    Jarry was the first goaltender off the ice Wednesday, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazettereports, indicating he will be between the home pipes against Calgary.

    Jarry is coming off his first shutout of the season Saturday, stopping all 32 shots against the Jets. He is 6-3-2 with a 3.27 GAA and a .904 save percentage this season and has battled back after six tough starts in which he gave up 28 goals on 208 shots. He will face the Flames, who have scored 58 goals in 18 games.

  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Absent from practice Tuesday

    DeSmtih was held out of practice Tuesday due to an upper-body injury, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    DeSmith's absence was referred to as precautionary by coach Mike Sullivan, so the netminder could still be healthy enough to suit up versus Calgary on Wednesday. Even if DeSmith is healthy, he may have to watch from the bench, especially after Tristan Jarry recorded a shutout in his previous outing.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Hands out helper

    Joseph put up an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    Joseph picked up his first point in his last six outings, though he also missed three games with a lower-body injury in that span. The 23-year-old has been limited to a bottom-four role when he's in the lineup, so his chances to produce offense are infrequent. He's done well considering that, earning five assists, 18 shots on net, 20 hits and a plus-8 rating through 15 appearances this season.

  • Penguins' Ryan Poehling: Slides helper Sunday

    Poehling notched an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    Poehling set up an Evgeni Malkin goal early in the second period to give the Penguins a 2-0 lead. With a goal and an assist in his last three contests, Poehling is doing better than usual on offense. He has five points, 23 shots on net, 11 hits, 11 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 19 games. The 23-year-old is unlikely to see much more than a bottom-six role, so he's best left on the waiver wire in most formats.
