It is the primary question on the lips of most Pittsburgh Penguins fans. The concern is less about when Sidney Patrick Crosby will return to the lineup, or which bargain winger the Penguins may scoop off the trade market, but more about which goalie is the Penguins undisputed No. 1 goalie, Tristan Jarry or Matt Murray?
