Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Among NHL goal leaders
Crosby scored a goal Thursday in a 4-2 win over the Lightning.
He pushed the score to 2-1 in the second period when he wired a shot from the left face-off circle that beat Andrei Vasilevskiy high on the short side. Crosby now has 14 goals (25 points) in 22 games. And he's done it almost entirely 5v5 -- just two of his goals and one assist have come on the power play. The Pens have been painful to watch on the PP -- they've been passive and ineffective, and among the NHL's worst. If they can figure out that mess, Crosby's output will surely climb. As it stands, he's in a three-way tie with Kyle Connor and Auston Matthews for fourth on the NHL goal list.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Jeff Carter: First goal of season wins game
Carter scored a goal Thursday in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay.
It was Carter's first goal of the season. He put the Pens up 3-2 in the third period with a shot from the slot off a quick feed from Matt Nieto. Carter has two points (one goal, one assist) in his last three games, but those are the only points he's put up this season. Over the last month, his ice time has mostly hovered in the seven-to-nine minute range, so there's not much opportunity for him to contribute for fantasy managers.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Tristan Jarry: First goalie goal in team history
Jarry scored a goalie goal into an empty net and made 39 saves Thursday in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay.
With Andrei Vasilevskiy pulled for an extra attacker, Jarry grabbed a shoot-in and lofted it from his crease into the empty net. It was the first goalie goal in Penguins' history. Sidney Crosby summed it up perfectly after the game: "It's cool. I mean, to be a part of that - you know, you see it happen, but I've never seen it live and been a part of it. I'm really happy for him. It's pretty cool to see." Remarkably, Pens platoon-mate Alex Nedeljkovic scored an AHL goalie goal 12 days ago when he was there on a conditioning assignment....

Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Starting in Tampa Bay
Jarry will defend the visiting crease versus Tampa Bay on Thursday, per Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff.
Jarry is 7-8-1 with a 2.48 GAA and ,916 save percentage this season. He is 1-0-1 in his last two starts after losing three games in a row. The Lightning are averaging 3.48 goals per game, sixth-best in the NHL, which certainly doesn't bode well for the netminder.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Falls in OT
Jarry allowed three goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Nashville.
After Michael McCarron scored twice in the opening frame, Jarry held the Predators off the board until Filip Forsberg's game-winning tally 14 seconds into overtime. The 28-year-old Jarry has just one win in his last five starts despite posting a respectable .912 save percentage in that span. Overall, he's 7-8-1 with a .916 save percentage and 2.48 GAA on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Alexander Nylander: Heads to minors
Nylander was returned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday, Dave Molinari of Pittsburgh Hockey Now reports.
Nylander, who was summoned from the minors last Tuesday, has no points, six shots and two hits in three contests with Pittsburgh this season. He also has five goals and eight points in 11 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Bryan Rust: Scores in return
Rust scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Predators.
After missing Pittsburgh's last three games with a lower-body injury, Rust picked up where he left off Tuesday, beating Juuse Saros with a long-range wrister to tie the game 2-2 late in the third period. The 31-year-old Rust now has 10 goals and 17 points through 18 games this season, putting him on pace to surpass his previous career high of 58 points set in the 2021-22 campaign.... See More ...

Penguins' Will Butcher: Hits waivers
Butcher (undisclosed) was placed on waivers Tuesday, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.
Butcher appears to be ready for game action after starting the season on the injured non-roster list. If he goes unclaimed, he will probably report to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The 28-year-old blueliner produced six goals and 43 points in 65 minor-league contests with Texas last season.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Bryan Rust: Ready to rock
According to coach Mike Sullivan, Rust (lower body) will be available for Tuesday night's game versus Nashville, Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.
Rust is expected to return to his usual prominent role following his three-game absence, skating on one of the top two lines and the top power-play unit against the Predators. He's been excellent this season, racking up nine goals and 16 points through 17 contests.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Starting in Nashville
Jarry will defend the road net Tuesday against Nashville, per Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff.
Jarry is coming off a 31-save performance in Saturday's 3-2 win over Toronto. In 15 games this season, he has registered a mark of 7-8-0 with three shutouts, a 2.44 GAA and a .918 save percentage. The Predators rank 11th in the league with 3.35 goals per contest this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Bryan Rust: Slated to be game-time call
Rust (lower body) is expected to be a game-time decision Tuesday against Nashville, Michelle Crechiolo of the Penguins' official site reports.
Rust was a full participant during Monday's practice and worked on the top power-play unit, which are both encouraging signs. He has missed the past three games due to a lower-body issue. Rust has accounted for nine goals, 16 points, 55 shots on net, 15 blocked shots and 10 hits over 17 outings this season.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Points in 10 of last 11 games
Guentzel scored a goal Saturday in a 3-2 win over Toronto.
Drew O'Connor saw Guentzel parked on the back door in the first, and he made a perfect pass to Guentzel, who only had to tuck the puck into a gaping net. Guentzel snapped a five-game goal drought with his seventh tally of the season. The winger is pacing toward his first 90-plus point season. Since the start of November, Guentzel has put up at least one point (five goals, nine assists) in 10 of 11 games.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Tristan Jarry: First win in last four starts
Jarry made 34 saves in a 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
Jarry snapped a personal three-game losing streak with the win. He locked things down after allowing two goals in a 3:49 span early in the first period. Jarry will be pushed with Alex Nedeljkovic back on the bench, so this was a strong outing to cement his status.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Jeff Carter: First point of season
Carter picked up an assist Saturday in a 3-2 win over Toronto.
It was his first point of the season in his 14th game. Carter is nearing the sunset of his career, and he's toiling on the Pens' fourth line. He was averaging 17:40 of ice time per contest just two seasons ago, but that has dropped to 9:46 of playing time per game in 2023-24. Carter is no longer a fantasy factor, and it's hard to watch him slide into obscurity.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Bryan Rust: Not playing against Toronto
Rust (lower body) won't play Saturday versus Toronto, Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.
Rust will sit out his third straight contest. He has provided nine goals, seven assists, 55 shots on net, 15 blocked shots and 10 hits over 17 games this season. Drew O'Connor has been playing on the top line during Rust's absence.... See More ... See Less
