Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry is week-to-week with a lower-body injury, head coach Mike Sullivan confirmed Saturday.

Casey DeSmith will assume starting duties down the stretch run as Pittsburgh jockeys for playoff position in the Metropolitan Division. Entering Saturday’s contest, the Penguins sit five points clear of the Washington Capitals for third place but have played two extra games.

DeSmith is 8-4-5 with a .906 save percentage this season.

Jarry bounced back from a miserable playoff showing last spring and put together a career campaign. The 26-year-old has posted a 34-18-6 record with four shutouts along with a .919 save percentage and 19.9 goals saved above average this season.
