Jarry is playing much better.
I was happy the game was on TV last night cause I really wanted to see Brassard score. Unfortunately, I did.
Two back to back situations this week. Saturday/Sunday and Tuesday/Wednesday or Wednesday/Thursday. Hope Murray is back and Jarry keeps playing solid. The Pens need to play well in the four games.
One out of two on the first back to back isn't bad but I would like to see them win both games on the second back to back. Two games in a row they have disallowed a Penguins goal. Hope this doesn't continue long. Also, hope Murray gets back soon.
That waved off goal because of goaltender interference was complete and utter BS. In no way did they stop him from making a play on the puck. His head wasn't bumped until after Domoulin had released the puck and made his move. Anyways good to see the defense rebound against the Stars and DeSmith looked solid. I think they should just rotate them until Murray is cleared to play. Jarry seems to play better one game on and then one game off.
DeSmith gave that game last night away. Up by 2 going into the 3rd period and he gives up 2 goals to allow the tie and then gives up a goal in overtime. He had plenty of help by the Pens taking 2 dumb penalties in the 3rd period. Murrey needs to come back very soon and be ready to play at a high level. I don't trust either of our backup goalies under pressure. The problem is when he comes back can he stay healthy which has been a big concern with him. The other problem is that our three superstars just disappear at times like last night. This team is still not where they need to be to win another Stanley Cup this year. IMO
You're right Fan - Jarry and DeSmith are 40-50 minute goalies at best but not the 60 or 65+ minute goalie needed for the 3-peat. And we saw what one of our ex-goalie did for the Canucks last night. This is troubling. Not unlike the Steelers, the O will have to continue to win these game down the stretch with a shakey D.
I don't think they can 3 peat unless the offense starts playing at a very high level and continues that level through the playoffs.
