Thoughts, musings and observations from the Penguins’ 5-3 loss to Anaheim…

* The Pens got off to the start they wanted. They appeared to show no signs of sluggishness despite the time change, as they had their legs under them from the drop of the puck and controlled play for most of the first period despite being outshot. They went into the first intermission with a well-earned 1-0 lead.

* Things took a turn in the second. The Ducks ended up taking a 2-1 lead off a pair of fluky goals – one off a perfect deflection; the other when Tristan Jarry’s stick got tangled up on one side of the net and prevented him from sliding over to stop a wraparound. Even though there wasn’t much the Pens could do on those, the momentum definitely shifted. The Pens started getting sloppy with the puck, giving up odd-man rushes and quality chances against, and handed the Ducks some freebies that they promptly took advantage of.

“I thought we had moments in the game where we were really good and others where we weren’t so good,” head coach Mike Sullivan said. “You can’t give up four breakaways. We’re hitting shinpads, we didn’t take care of the puck in certain areas of the rink and when we don’t play a disciplined, diligent game in those areas, then you’re vulnerable. The real estate inside and outside the blue lines are so critically important to becoming a team that’s harder to play against and when we don’t take care of the puck in those areas, you’re going to run the risk of those types of plays.”

* The Pens did do a good job of battling back in the third. They pushed hard and made it a game, creating as much as they gave up. But unfortunately, the hockey gods weren’t on their side tonight as some of those fantastic chances just wouldn’t fall. “We fell short tonight, but we’ve just got to make sure we heed the lessons and I think the most important takeaway is that we’ve just got make sure that we take care of the puck in those critical areas of the rink,” Sullivan said.

* This was an interesting night on special teams. The Ducks dominated that area for the first two periods, where their fifth-ranked penalty kill was phenomenal against Pittsburgh’s top-ranked power play. They created more shorthanded than the Pens did with the extra man, and ended up getting a goal off a breakaway as a result. However, the Pens responded in the third with a pair of power-play goals from Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel to cut a 4-1 deficit to 4-3.

Thoughts, musings and observations from the Penguins’ 2-1 loss to Carolina…

* The turning point of this game came in the second period. Late in the frame, it appeared that Jaccob Slavin had given the Canes a 2-1 lead when he beat Tristan Jarry with a bomb from the point, but the Pens used their coach’s challenge on the play. After video review, it was determined there had been goalie interference as Derek Ryan had elbowed Jarry in the head right before the puck entered the net. No goal.

That was a huge break for the Pens, and the perfect opportunity to shift momentum back onto their side. But Carolina wasn’t ready to give it up. On the next shift, the Pens got trapped in their end and began scrambling. Slavin stickhandled into the slot and Jarry pokechecked the puck, which bounced onto the blade of Sebastian Aho for the score. It took the Canes all of 21 seconds to regain the 2-1 advantage, one they would not relinquish. It always hurts giving up goals late in periods, but that one was particularly backbreaking.

* That sequence is the one that stands out from that period, but overall, the Canes were the better team in the middle 20 minutes. I thought they outplayed the Pens pretty drastically. The Pens had to expect a response from them, but they weren’t able to provide a pushback. Instead, they had a letdown. The Pens spent too much time in their own end and gave up quality scoring chances and a high volume of shots, and the Canes were eventually rewarded with the game-winner at the end. The Pens have to be able to handle that kind of pressure better.

* The Pens did get the start they wanted. That had been a big focus for them because entering tonight, the Canes had scored first in seven of their last eight games and are 6-0 in their last six games when tallying first. I thought they were incredibly solid in the opening 20 minutes from top to bottom. They didn’t give up a lot and generated a lot of offensive-zone time. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to carry that over.

* The Pens were so resilient in their last game, a 5-4 shootout win over Columbus, erasing two-goal deficits twice in the third period. But they weren’t able to do the same against Carolina. Credit to the Canes for the style of hockey they played. They played a north-south, straight-line game and did a good job of using their speed to take away the Pens’ time and space. Overall, they did a fantastic job of protecting the lead.

* Jarry had a pretty heavy workload in his first start since Dec. 11. The Canes fired double-digit shots on him in the first two periods and totaled 33 on the night. I thought he looked great and did a good job of giving his team a chance to win. He was especially strong on Carolina’s two power plays.

* Brian Dumoulin scored the Pens’ only goal of the night in the first five minutes of play. He recognized an opportunity to join the rush and took it. Jake Guentzel’s centering pass went off a skate and right to Dumoulin, who chipped it into the net. Overall Dumoulin had a solid night, as he also saved a goal by stick-checking Jordan Staal, who had a wide-open net.

Thoughts, musings and observations from the Pens’ 2-1 loss against the Colorado Avalanche at PPG Paints Arena…

* Goaltender Tristan Jarry made his sixth consecutive start and eighth straight appearance in the blue paint for Pittsburgh. His previous outing didn’t go so well as he allowed three goals and was pulled after 20 minutes against Toronto. The question was how Jarry would handle bouncing back from such an ugly outing.

The answer: magnificently.

Jarry made several ridiculous saves for Pittsburgh, including a shorthanded breakaway stop on J.T. Compher and a split pad save on Blake Comeau late in the third period. It was a tough test for the rookie tender, and he passed easily. Jarry gave the Pens a chance to win.

* Nova Scotia-native Nathan MacKinnon is off to the best start of his five-year NHL career. He was definitely the Avalanche’s best player in the game, and appeared to have scored his team-leading 14th goal of the season with a nice move around defenseman Kris Letang before slipping the puck through Jarry’s five-hole.

However, the Penguins challenged the play for offside. The challenge was upheld and the goal was negated.

* The Pens had their spurts of dominance, mostly in the third period, but it was an otherwise lackluster performance. Pittsburgh seemed to have no flow, appeared disjointed and its passes were off. Collectively, the Pens struggled to really find their game and assert themselves.

It was an uninspiring night all around for Pittsburgh.

* Entering the game, goaltender Jonathan Bernier had won just once in 10 previous appearances against the Pens. He improved that to twice.

* Phil Kessel extended his scoring streak to 5 games with a late third-period goal (4G-1A).

The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled goaltender Tristan Jarry from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

Goalie Casey DeSmith has been re-assigned to WBS.

Jarry, 22, has won three-straight games for WBS prior to his recall, including 18 saves on 20 shots in a 5-2 win at Bridgeport last Saturday night. Overall, Jarry has started five games this year, going 3-2 with a 3.18 goals-against average and an .897 save percentage.

Last season, the 6-foot-2, 194-pound Jarry backstopped WBS to the top regular-season record in the AHL, compiling a 28-15-2 record, three shutouts, a 2.15 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage in 45 appearances. He and DeSmith combined to win the Harry “Hap” Holmes Award after allowing the fewest goals in the AHL.

Jarry, who hails from Surrey, British Columbia, made his NHL debut for Pittsburgh in last year’s season-finale at Madison Square Garden against the New York Rangers. He has dressed as the backup goalie in the opening round of the NHL playoffs for the Penguins each of the last two seasons, and was also a member of the “Black Aces” practice squad both years as well.

Pittsburgh’s second-round (44th overall) draft pick in 2013, Jarry has played in 83 career AHL regular-season games with WBS, going 48-30-5 with a 2.42 goals-against average, a .916 save percentage and eight shutouts.

Thoughts, musings, and observations from the Pens’ 4-1 loss against the Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena.

* First of all, it was fantastic getting the chance to play at Little Caesars Arena. When we first got to the building, players went straight to the visitors bench to get their first look. What stood out the most was just how, well, red everything is, as every seat in the entire bowl is a vivid shade of crimson. After that, we toured the concourse and were impressed by the mix of old and new. They brought over all of the statues of Red Wings greats like Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay from Joe Louis Arena, which were spread out by a bunch of cool Detroit-themed restaurants and bars. Just a cool atmosphere.

* Joe Louis Arena was infamous for its bouncy back boards, and the players joked that they made sure to test out the back boards here to make sure they didn’t have the same elasticity. “Some of the guys mentioned the first thing they wanted to test out were how the boards reacted, so you saw a couple guys shooting pucks against the boards and seeing what was happening,” goalie Tristan Jarry said. “I did a couple times too to make sure.”

* Tonight was Jarry’s first full game of the preseason, and I thought he looked solid while facing a lot of quality chances against, including a few odd-man rushes. He was in net for three of the goals, as the fourth was an empty-netter, and some of them were just skilled hockey plays. “I thought he made some real good saves at times during the game for us,” head coach Mike Sullivan said. “I thought he might have lost his focus on one of those goals. But overall, I thought he made some real good saves.”

* Sullivan wasn’t as pleased with the play of the guys in front of Jarry. “I thought at times, we were competing hard. Didn’t like the second period at all. I thought the second period, we got outcompeted and we talked about that in between periods. That’s the one thing that we can control out there. It starts with puck battles and wall play and just being more determined than the guy you’re playing against. I thought the second period we got outcompeted. I thought the first period we had a pretty strong period. In the third period I thought we played pretty well.”

* Pittsburgh’s lone goal of the game came off the stick of Scott Wilson on a heads-up play. A Wings player, who was the last man back, lost his footing while in possession of the puck. Wilson jumped on it and went in alone on Jimmy Howard, beating him five-hole.

* The Pens had another tremendous scoring chance thanks to a phenomenal play from Thomas Di Pauli. Di Pauli got tripped, but managed to reach out and force a turnover while flat on his stomach. He got the puck right to Freddie Tiffels alone in front, who tried to deke but got denied. If they could have finished off that play, it would have been incredible.

* Greg McKegg continues to impress. He was in and around the net all night making plays. He has so much speed and uses it to be so hard on pucks, and creates a lot for himself and his teammates as a result. At one point he overtook a defender to force a turnover and get the puck to Chad Ruhwedel for a scoring opportunity, and at another point he received a nice pass, gained the zone and started a strong O-zone shift. It feels like McKegg keeps building on every game, and right now, it feels like he’s the top contender for that third-line center position.
