Pittsburgh Penguins

DeSmith will start Friday vs. the Canucks.

DeSmith allowed six goals on 34 shots in the Penguins loss in Vegas on January 19th. DeSmith has had a solid season but has been terrible lately, losing three straight while allowing a combined 14 goals on 88 shots (.841 SV%). As bad as he’s played recently, he is a strong option vs. the visiting Senators.

The Penguins have signed Casey DeSmith to a three-year extension worth $3.75M ($1.25M AAV).

The undrafted 27-year-old netminder has gone 12-7-4 with a 2.47 GAA and .924 SV% in 26 games with the Penguins this season. DeSmith has played very well while Matt Murray was sidelined and proved that he is a more than capable No.2 netminder who can serve as a No.1 when called upon.

DeSmith will start Monday vs. the Ducks.

DeSmith turned aside 48 of 51 shots in the Penguins win over the Bruins last Friday. Matt Murray turned in a great performance on Saturday as well but they’ll go back to DeSmith tonight vs. the Ducks. A solid 1-2 in net could be shaping up for the Penguins after a tough start to the season. Anaheim has won eight of their last nine while averaging 3.67 goals for per game.

DeSmith will start Wednesday in Chicago.

DeSmith allowed one goal on 26 shots in the Penguins shootout win over the Islanders on Monday. Even with Matt Murray being activated from IR, the Penguins will stick with DeSmith tonight in Chicago. DeSmith has won three of his last four starts with a 1.96 GAA and .933 SV% and is a must-start against a Chicago team that has lost eight in a row.
