Penguins’ Casey DeSmith finished after surgery for Rangers series

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. Penguins’ Casey DeSmith finished after surgery for Rangers series
