The Pittsburgh Penguins Could Use Tristan Jarry Right About Now

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

Everybody in hockey – OK, with the exception of the Rangers -- is hoping this Crosby injury is relatively minor. He’s too good for the game to miss more time. His performances are must-see entertainment.

But the Penguins, still up 3-2 in the series, are going to need more than just Crosby to get that fourth win to finish off the Rangers.

They also will need Tristan Jarry.

I get the love affair with Louis Domingue. Pittsburgh justifiably has made him a hockey cult hero. He deserves every bit of that after coming off the bench cold in the second overtime of Game 1 with a full belly of spicy pork and broccoli and making 17 saves to give the Penguins a chance to finally win in the third overtime on Evgeni Malkin’s goal.

I also get that Domingue, a career journeyman by definition, hasn’t been awful. He made a huge third-period save on an Artemi Panarin shot in Game 3 moments before Danton Heinen scored the winning goal for the Penguins. He also made a tremendous save on 52-goal man Chris Kreider on a four-on-one early in the third period Wednesday night to keep the Rangers’ lead at 4-3.

Domingue should never have to buy another dinner or drinks in Pittsburgh again even if his meal is something more substantial than spicy pork and broccoli.

But Domingue has allowed 15 goals in his four starts. His save performance in those games is .873. That’s just not good enough.

That’s why it was so encouraging to see Jarry, who hasn’t played since April 14 because of a broken foot, on the ice for the Penguins’ optional skate Wednesday morning.
