DeSmith on stepping in for Murray: “It’s very unexpected, obviously, but I’m excited. It’s always exciting to play a NHL game. I’d like to prove that I’m an every day starter in this league. I’m going to make the most of the starts I have.”
Sullivan on starting DeSmith: He’s got a .935 save percentage in two games. It’s pretty impressive. It doesn’t take away from the fact that Matt’s our No. 1 goalie. He’s also coming off an injury. ... It gives Matt another couple of days to get some practice time and rest..
Left unsaid by Mike DeSmith is giving the Penguins a chance to win games when they’re outplayed. There are more reasons to give Casey DeSmith more starts in the near future:.
Give Casey DeSmith more starts for several reasons—including protecting Matt Murray writes @TheDanKingerski Sunday column:.
Casey DeSmith played very well again. Yes, he gets a loss on the stat sheet but he was not the reason why. #Penguins.
Bryan Rust, Evgeni Malkin and Casey DeSmith discuss a shootout loss in Montreal.
Drouin bat de vitesse DeSmith en fusillade! VOIR ➡️ #GoHabsGo.
What an experience at the #CentreBell tonight. DeSmith was rock solid, Letang was a beast. Just a thrill to see some NHL action live in stadium again. Can‘t wait for Pens-Leafs next week..
DeSmith on the 5 D: Gutsy. Amazing play by everybody. I thought Letang had a really solid game for us. I thought me made a lot of really good plays, showed a lot of poise out there at key times for us. -SK.
I wish Twitter was chronological so everyone could see me mocking my own DeSmith tweet… Not that your lines aren’t funny, but I worry people don’t realize—I know!.
DeSmith on the goalie interference: (Shaw) slew footed me a little bit and put me off balance. As a reaction my arm came up and the puck went under it. I had a pretty good feeling it was going to get called back. I looked at the ref right away. -SK.
So, imagine not only defending and apologizing for a guy arrested of DV, Casey DeSmith, but then actively name searching his name on Twitter to engage with two people you don’t follow and proceed to get in argument about him. Totally normal thing to do..
Crosby on DeSmith: He played really well. We had big kills. He had to make some big saves. He kept us in it all night, especially in the 2nd. They scored a few but could have had more. I think they had 15 scoring chances in the 2nd. He did a great job for us tonight. -SK.
@RidenerTina @sharon_schwan We can take so many positives from tonight’s game. DeSmith was great and it’s looking positive. Our PK was phenomenal. We’ve found a potential line buddy for Crosby and we took a point on the first road game of the season. Every cloud sure does have a silver lining! ❤️.
Dur can’t handle a Guess what? Had the rest of the team played with some urgency and not taken shit penalties we wouldn’t have been there now, would we?.
@notdrouinsogood Casey desmith was charged with domestic violence if im correct he deserves nothing but trash.
@penguins if it weren’t for desmith we would’ve probably lost in regulation. i’ll take the point but penguins need to step it up.
I hope Casey DeSmith felt nothing but pain and sadness after Drouin and Byron fucking owned him in the shootout.
Too bad DeSmith had to get a L for tonight - Should have gone to Geno for his dumb penalties and horrible shootout attempt #Pens #Penguins.
@PensInsideScoop Man I so wish OT would have continued until someone scored. DeSmith played a hell of a game..
Canadiens shooter 2: Drouin goes way to the outside, comes in, and scores on DeSmith..
The Penguins made their notorious middle of the ice turnover, but DeSmith wasn’t fazed at all. Saw it all the way into his pads. He’s seriously been so good..
#Pens 3 Stars thus far: 1. Kessel 2. DeSmith 3. Malkin Honorable Mention: Riikola.
Casey DeSmith is absolutely FANTASTIC tonight. Yes, he probably could/should have saved that lone goal, but in all honesty I’m feeling a lot more confident with him in net than I was with Murray so far..
We stole Fleury from the maybe we should steal DeSmith in the 😎.
