Tristan Jarry took another step toward returning to the Pittsburgh Penguins’ lineup Monday morning.
He had his second on-ice workout since breaking a bone in his foot and, after a series of drills, faced shots from goaltending coach Andy Chiodo.
The shots, it should be noted, were not particularly hard or challenging, but they still mark a meaningful bit of progress in Jarry’s recovery.
Jarry is the Penguins’ No. 1 goalie and his backup, Casey DeSmith, will miss the rest of the season after undergoing core muscle surgery last week, so Louis Domingue has become the team’s go-to guy for their opening-round playoff series against the New York Rangers.
Domingue is scheduled to be in goal for Game 4 tonight at 7 at PPG Paints Arena.
Igor Shesterkin, who was chased from Game 3 after allowing four goals in the first period, will get the start for New York.
