Top Penguins News

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Strong play continues

    Jarry made 26 saves in a 6-2 win over St Louis on Saturday.

    The Penguins led the whole game and Jarry was a big part of that. Pavel Buchnevich beat him on a one-timer in the first period and Vladimir Tarasenko wired in a snap shot on a second-period breakaway. Nonetheless, Jarry never lost the lead. Jarry has won two straight and is 6-0-1 in his last seven starts. He hasn't lost in regulation since Nov. 5.

  • Penguins' Bryan Rust: Four-point outburst leads way

    Rust had a goal and three assists in a 6-2 win over the Blues on Saturday.

    The goal was a feat of strength. Rust took the puck away from Brandon Saad along the wall and drove to the slot where he fired a snap shot. The point explosion was a welcome sight for Rust, who had just two points (one goal, one assist) in his previous 14 games.

  • Penguins' Kasperi Kapanen: Second career hat trick

    Kapanen scored a hat trick in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Blues.

    Two goals came on the power play; one stood as the winner. It was the second NHL hat trick for Kapanen, who has scored four of his five goals this season in his past three games after being a healthy scratch for the previous seven. It may be time to scoop Kapanen off the waiver wire.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Expected to start Saturday

    Jarry is expected to guard the home crease against St. Louis on Saturday, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Jarry was the first netminder off the ice at practice Saturday, which means he should get the start versus the Blues. Jarry is 9-3-3 with a 2.91 GAA and a .915 save percentage -- he's gone 5-0-1 in his last six starts. He takes on the Blues, who have scored only 67 goals in 23 games this campaign.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Quickly back in win column

    Jarry made 34 saves in a 4-3 win over the Golden Knights on Thursday.

    Jack Eichel opened the scoring on an easy tap-in after a turn-over deep in the Pens' zone. Reilly Smith pushed the score to 2-0 with a power-play marker late in the first period. And Shea Theodore notched another power-play snipe early in the third period to push the score to 3-2. Then, the Pens fought back in the third. Jarry has put up strong performances of late and has a 5-0-1 record over his last six starts with just 12 goals allowed in that span.

  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Three-game, five-point streak

    Guentzel had a goal and an assist Thursday in a 4-3 win over Vegas.

    His goal tied the game at 3-3 in the third on a one-timer set up by Evgeni Malkin during a 4-on-3 power play. It was a big one -- it ended Pittsburgh's drought with the man-advantage at 18. Guentzel is on a three-game, five-point scoring streak (two goals, three assists) and he has 23 points (12 goals, 11 assists) in 20 contests. He's on pace to replicate his 40-goal, 84-point career mark from last season.

  • Penguins' Kasperi Kapanen: First goal since season opener

    Kapanen scored the game-winning goal and picked up an assist in a 4-3 victory over the Golden Knights on Thursday.

    It was a nice goal -- he scored from the right post off a pass from Brock McGinn. But it was his first goal since the season opener on Oct. 13. And the assist earlier in the game was Kapanen's first point since Oct. 22. He's a major on-ice and fantasy disappointment alike, but perhaps this microburst brings positive things to his game.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Light skate Thursday

    Letang (stroke) went for a light skate Thursday, according to Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com.

    Letang suffered a stroke Monday and was allowed to skate more for his mental well being rather than to start a return to action. The talented defenseman suffered his first stroke in 2014 and returned to action 72 days later, playing the final three games of the season. There is no timetable for his return at this time.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Starting Thursday

    Jarry will be in the home crease against Vegas on Thursday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

    Jarry saw his four-game winning streak come to an end Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina. Jarry is 8-3-3 with a 2.90 GAA and a .914 save percentage. He will take on the Golden Knights, who top the Western Conference with a 17-6-1 record, scoring 83 goals in 24 games.

  • Penguins' Pierre-Olivier Joseph: Garners helper in narrow loss

    Joseph delivered an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

    Currently operating on the third defensive pair, Joseph seems to be holding his own. He's produced six assists to complement a plus-7 rating through 19 top-level games. These numbers don't move the needle much in fantasy hockey, but it leaves a lot of room for optimism once Joseph gains more NHL experience. Remember, Joseph was the 23rd overall pick (by Arizona) in 2017, and he has a nice blend of speed and skill to ultimately take on additional power-play responsibilities.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Out indefinitely after stroke

    Letang will be out indefinitely after suffering a stroke Monday. "I am optimistic that I will be back on the ice soon," Letang said Wednesday in a statement.

    According to the team release, Letang isn't suffering from any long-term effects and is expected back once a medical plan can be put into place. This is the second stroke Letang has suffered during his playing career, with the previous one occurring in 2014 due to a hole in the wall of his heart. While the Penguins aren't currently providing a timeline for Letang's return, he was sidelined for two months during the previous episode.

  • Penguins' Jeff Petry: Records assist in loss

    Petry registered one assist, five hits and one shot versus Carolina on Tuesday.

    Petry logged over 25 minutes of ice time for just the second time this season while Kris Letang (illness) was sidelined. If Letang remains unavailable versus Vegas on Thursday, Petry should continue to feature prominently on the blue line, including with the No. 1 power-play unit.

  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Goal and assist in loss

    Guentzel logged a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

    Guentzel set up Sidney Crosby alone in the slot for the opening goal early in the first period. Guentzel would add a goal late in the third, deflecting a Jeff Petry shot past Pyotr Kochehtkov to tie the game 2-2. The 28-year-old winger is having another strong campaign with 11 goals and 10 assists through 19 contests.

  • Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Logs two points in loss

    Crosby recorded a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

    Crosby opened the scoring early in the first period, burying a feed from Jake Guentzel in the slot. Crosby would then add an assist on Guentzel's game-tying goal late in the third period. Crosby is up to 12 goals and 19 assists through 23 games as he continues to produce at an elite level in his age-35 season.

  • Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Falls in overtime

    Jarry stopped 36 of 39 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina.

    Jarry was sharp on Tuesday, allowing just a pair of second-period goals, before ultimately allowing the winner to Brett Pesce in overtime. The loss snapped Jarry's four-game winning steak, as he's rebounded from an uneven start to the season. The 27-year-old netminder is now 8-3-3 with a .914 save percentage.
