DeSmith will be stationed between the pipes for Sunday's home tilt with the Flyers, Dave Molinari of Pittsburgh Hockey Now reports.
DeSmith was beaten six times on 24 shots in his last outing Tuesday against Detroit. He fell to 14-16-4 with a 3.20 GAA and a .904 save percentage through 37 appearances. DeSmith dominated the Flyers on March 11, turning aside 31 of 32 shots in the victory.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Allows six in loss
DeSmith stopped 18 of 24 shots in the Penguins' 7-4 loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.
DeSmith was not at his best Tuesday, and this was the third straight start in which he's allowed at least three goals. That's in contrast to the 31-year-old's 2.07 GAA and .927 save percentage over his first five appearances in March. He should return to a backup role relatively soon as Tristan Jarry has returned from a lower-body injury.... See More ... See Less

DeSmith saved 31 of 34 shots in a 4-3 win over Washington on Saturday.

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Stops 30 in loss
DeSmith allowed three goals on 33 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.
DeSmith was solid Thursday, holding Dallas to just one goal over the first two periods. However, the Stars would beat DeSmith twice in the third period, handing the Penguins a 3-2 loss. The 31-year-old netminder falls to 13-15-4 with a .907 save percentage on the year. DeSmith could see another chance in goal Saturday against the Capitals if Tristan Jarry (lower body) remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Set to start in Dallas
DeSmith will guard the road goal versus the Stars on Thursday, Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.
DeSmith will start the second half of a back-to-back, though it's possible he gets more time going forward with Tristan Jarry (lower body) hurt. Through five games in March, DeSmith is 2-2-0 with eight goals allowed on 110 shots, so he's more than capable of filling in, though Thursday's game is a tough matchup for the 31-year-old....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Surrenders two goals in relief
DeSmith allowed two goals on seven shots in relief in Pittsburgh's 6-0 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
The Penguins were already down 4-0 when DeSmith entered the game in the second period, so he wasn't charged with the loss. Through 34 appearances this season, he has a 13-14-4 record, 3.12 GAA and .907 save percentage. Pittsburgh's starting goaltender, Tristan Jarry, was yanked for the second time in his last three starts, and his recent struggles might lead to DeSmith being put in net Monday versus Ottawa. If nothing else, there's a good chance that the 31-year-old will start in one of Pittsburgh's back-to-back contests against Colorado on Wednesday and Dallas on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Won't start after all
DeSmith will not be the starter versus the Rangers on Thursday despite occupying the starter's net at the game-day skate, Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.
DeSmith has allowed just two goals in his last three appearances, which includes a pair of relief outings after starter Tristan Jarry was given the hook. Despite better numbers of late, it appears the Pens will stick with Jarry for now ahead of DeSmith, though the 31-year-old netminder should be ready for another relief appearance given Jarry's recent performances....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Expected to start Thursday
DeSmith is expected to get the road start versus the Rangers on Thursday, Rob Rossi of The Athletic reports.

DeSmith is 13-14-4 with a 3.11 GAA and .908 save percentage this season. He will face the Rangers, who are 14th in NHL scoring, averaging 3.25 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Takes loss in relief
DeSmith stopped 13 of 14 shots in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Canadiens.
DeSmith took over in the second period after Tristan Jarry allowed four goals in the opening frame. DeSmith was sharp, holding Montreal off the board in the second while Pittsburgh scored twice to tie the game 4-4. However, the 31-year-old netminder allowed an Anthony Richard goal early in the third period before the Habs added an empty-netter, sticking him with a 6-4 loss. DeSmith has played well of late, going 3-2-0 with a .932 save percentage over his last six appearances. He's now 13-14-4 with a .908 save percentage on the season.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Sharp in Saturday's win
DeSmith made 31 saves in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Flyers.
Kieffer Bellows beat him from just inside the blue line midway through the first period, but DeSmith wasn't caught napping again the rest of the afternoon and cruised to his third win in his last four appearances. Since the beginning of February, the 31-year-old has gone 6-3-0 with a 2.62 GAA and .924 save percentage, and DeSmith should continue to see consistent work while Tristan Jarry (3.93 GAA since his return from an upper-body injury) struggles to regain his form....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Facing Flyers

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Picks up OT win in relief
DeSmith turned aside all 15 shots he faced in regulation and overtime after replacing Tristan Jarry early in the second period of Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jackets.
Pittsburgh was in a 4-0 hole when DeSmith entered the game, but the switch in net galvanized the team and led to a huge comeback victory. The 31-year-old netminder certainly did his part, and since the All-Star break he's 5-3-0 in nine appearances with a 2.84 GAA and .918 save percentage. The Pens would like Jarry to reclaim the No. 1 role, but as long as he keeps struggling, DeSmith should see consistent action as part of a timeshare.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Solid in loss
DeSmith made 38 saves Saturday in a 4-1 loss to Florida.
DeSmith played a solid game. The game was 2-1 until the 19:50 mark of the second, when Eetu Luostarinen jammed in a rebound in the crease. The momentum swung to the Panthers at that point, and Sergei Bobrovsky dazzled in the win. DeSmith played Saturday because Tristan Jarry was under the weather. The former will return to his spot on the bench and probably won't see more than a start every week-and-a-half with the Pens just three points up on the Sabres and Panthers for the final wild-card spot....

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Gets start Saturday
DeSmith will be in the visiting crease versus Florida on Saturday, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Tristan Jarry was slated to get the start, but he's under the weather, so DeSmith will start instead. Jarry is well enough to be the backup Saturday. DeSmith is 11-12-4 with a 3.27 GAA and .904 save percentage this season. He will face the Panthers, who are tied for eighth in scoring, averaging 3.38 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Guarding cage Sunday

Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Gets plenty of support in win
DeSmith kicked out 26 of 29 shots in a 7-3 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Pittsburgh was down 2-1 after that frame, but the Penguins rallied in the second with six goals, which was more than enough to hand DeSmith the victory. He has an 11-12-4 record, 3.27 GAA and .904 save percentage in 29 contests this season. The 31-year-old was 3-2-0 with a 2.95 GAA and a .918 save percentage over his previous six contests....
