Tristan Jarry (upper body) practiced fully on Monday and said afterward that he's back to being 100-percent healthy. "I feel really good out there," Jarry said. "I think it was a good couple days of practice and being able to work with (goalie coach Mike Buckley) and the coaching staff and just get ahead on things. I think it'll translate into my game." He missed two games after exiting last Monday's match against the New York Islanders because of an upper-body injury. Jarry said that he was pulled from that contest as a precaution and he feels it was the right decision. He could be an option for Tuesday's match against the New York Rangers, but coach Mike Sullivan didn't confirm any goaltender plans for the contest.
