Dan’s Daily: Jarry Soaring, Marchand Snaps, Vegas on the Trade Market



Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL trade, brad marchand, Tristan jarry

Isn’t it nice to have the news dominated by player performances and NHL trade rumors instead of COVID? It appears a setback in his comeback will shove Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask into retirement. On Tuesday night, Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry resumed his brick-wall routine against the Bruins. And Jack Eichel’s impending return means the Vegas Golden Knights must become sellers.

Oh, and you may have heard of a bit of an incident between Brad Marchand and Tristan Jarry at the end of Tuesday’s game. We’ll start with the game itself if that’s cool.

PHN+: The Penguins were not very good against the Boston Bruins. The Penguins were outshot 45-25, and this time no one can blame Evgeni Malkin for the Penguins allowing a ridiculous number of shots. Get the game insights, Penguins chalkboard, and Pittsburgh Penguins player grades.
