Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry made arguably the greatest save of his young career in the second period of Sunday night's 4-1 loss against the Florida Panthers at PPG Paints Arena.
Jarry was down on his knees in the butterfly position against the left post. Denis Malgin made a cross-slot pass to defenseman Aaron Ekblad on the backside. The Florida blueliner had the entire open net at which to shoot.
Or so he thought.
Jarry pushed off his left skate to come across in a split and reached out his blocker to knock away Ekblad's airborne shot.
"I got scored on with a similar goal against Ottawa," Jarry said, "so I was trying to watch what was behind me and try to put everything I could over there when the puck was thrown over there."
Jarry is still 9-3-1 at home and 6-1-1 in his past seven games.
Jarry played brilliantly in the contest, making 31 saves. He also made a great stop on Malgin on a two-on-one rush, and steered the dangerous Aleksander Barkov to shoot wide on a shorthanded breakaway.
But none were as ridiculous as his stop on Ekblad.
