The Pittsburgh Penguins are turning to goaltender Tristan Jarry with their season on the line.

When Pittsburgh deals with Montreal in Game 4 of their play-in series, coach Mike Sullivan said hours prior to Friday afternoon's game that Jarry will make his first playoff start. The Canadiens lead the best-of-five 2-1 after rallying for a 4-3 triumph in Game 3.

Jarry was an unlikely All-Star this season when he played wonderfully throughout the very first half, helping keep the Penguins in contention regardless of missing out on captain Sidney Crosby for a prolonged duration following surgical treatment.

Jarry is replacing Matt Murray. Murray, who helped direct the Penguins to consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017, has actually lost 8 of his last nine post-season starts.
