Penguins Q&A: Tristan Jarry Problems, Options for Jeff Carter



The Pittsburgh Penguins both dominated and lost to the Montreal Canadiens at PPG Paints Arena Tuesday. Defensive gaffes, including a few from Brian Dumoulin and Jeff Petry, with some help from Jeff Carter’s fourth line, yielded unstoppable chances.

However, Penguins starting goalie Tristan Jarry did give up four goals on seven shots, and coach Mike Sullivan pulled his starter after the first period.

From PPG Paints Arena, PHN’s Dan Kingerski took a variety of questions after the frustrating loss. The Penguins’ locker room was sour after the loss. Winger Jason Zucker said flatly, “We have no answers. That wasn’t good enough.”

Jake Guentzel scored a pair of goals. The Penguins third line dominated with 10 scoring chances and allowed just one. However, Jeff Carter was minus-4 and was benched. Brian Dumoulin and Jeff Petry were minus-3 before Petry was injured and did not play in the third period.

Fellow defenseman Jan Rutta was also injured and did not play in the third. The Penguins were down to four d-men. They pressed but could not tie the game after Montreal claimed a 5-4 lead three minutes into the third period. The Penguins outshot Montreal 43-22.
