Rangers are expected to see more of Louis Domingue when their first-round playoff series moves to Pittsburgh for Game 3 on Saturday.
Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said goaltender Casey DeSmith will miss the rest of the postseason after undergoing core muscle surgery Friday morning.
DeSmith left the Penguins’ three-time overtime win in Game 1 during the second extra session.
While regular-season starter Tristan Jarry was out with a broken foot, Domingue took over from DeSmith and made 17 saves in the series opener before Evgeni Malkin struck the game-winner in triple overtime. Domingue, 30, allowed five goals on 40 shots in Rangers’ 5-2 win in Game 2 at the Garden.
Sullivan said Jarry is from day to day, but the all-star netminder did not attend optional practice in Pittsburgh on Friday. Alex D’Orio was recalled by the AHL to assist Domingue in Game 2.
