They said it
"Tristan has played extremely well. In his last handful of starts, we feel that he's been very good and deserving of the starts we've been giving him. He's seeing the puck really well and tracking it. I'm sure his confidence is high, because success usually breeds confidence." -- Penguins coach Mike Sullivan on starting goalie Tristan Jarry in five of the past seven games
"He's just a hockey player. He battles, he plays hard, he blocks shots and he scores goals. He's got a speed to his game where he's always in every battle and when he's there, he's getting his stick on the puck, or a skate, or a glove -- getting something on the puck." -- Red Wings center Dylan Larkin on linemate Tyler Bertuzzi
