PITTSBURGH (AP) – The Pittsburgh Penguins will be without their top two goaltenders for Saturday’s regular-season finale against Buffalo.

Coach Mike Sullivan ruled Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith out with minor injuries on Friday.

DeSmith is dealing with an upper-body injury while Jarry is working through a lower-body injury.

DeSmith was injured in a loss to Philadelphia on Monday. Jarry played in an 8-4 victory over Buffalo on Thursday.

Maxime Lagace is expected to make his first start in more than two years as the Penguins try to move closer to locking up home-ice advantage in the opening round of the playoffs.
