From Bad Jarry To Good Jarry

05/19/2021 at 7:00am EDT

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

On this night, they sang his name.

“Jar-ry! Jar-ry! Jar-ry!”

Unlike the other afternoon, there was no expletive in front of it.

Such is life for an NHL goaltender at playoff time. When his team loses, it’s all his fault. But when it wins? He’s the biggest sports hero in town.

That is the life Tristan Jarry has chosen.

He was on the right side of the deal Tuesday night.

As bad as Jarry was Sunday afternoon in the Penguins’ 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Islanders, he was that good in their 2-1 win against the Islanders on Tuesday night. It’s fair to say he is most responsible for the first-round playoff series being tied at a game apiece.

There was no better player on the PPG Paints Arena ice in a game the Penguins desperately needed.

I have to admit, I didn’t see this bounce-back performance coming from Jarry. His teammates did, though.
