Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry, out since Jan. 2, looks as if he might return to the net Friday when the Ottawa Senators visit PPG Paints Arena.
Jarry was the first goaltender off the ice at the Penguins morning skate, usually an indication he will start. Coach Mike Sullivan called Jarry a game-time decision. That could mean that, barring some sort of physical setback later in the day, Jarry will start.
Jarry, the team’s No. 1 goalie, has been skating and practicing this week.
Casey DeSmith and, to a lesser extent, Dustin Tokarski, have been filling in. The Penguins, not including the Jan. 2 outdoor Winter Classic, have gone 3-3-1 without Jarry. He left during the first period of that high-profile game because of a lower-body injury.
Tristan Jarry is 15-5-4 with a 2.75 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage.
