Pittsburgh Penguins DFS Spin
Tristan Jarry allowed four goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Jarry had a really tough night, especially considering the Penguins held a 3-0 lead at one point. While his team failed to find the back of the net after the 3:57 mark of the first period, he'd like to have a couple of goals that he allowed back. Jarry was peppered with shots throughout the game but he failed to make the timely saves that the Penguins needed to hold on to their lead. The 25-year-old owns an 8-7-1 record with a 3.13 goals-against average and .899 save percentage.
