Penguins’ Casey DeSmith, Rickard Rakell deemed day-to-day

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Casey DeSmith and forward Rickard Rakell are considered day-to-day with their respective injuries, coach Mike Sullivan announced Wednesday.

Neither player took part in an optional practice at Madison Square Garden in New York on Wednesday. That session came one day after the Penguins posted a 4-3 victory in triple-overtime against the Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference first-round series. Game 2 is Thursday in New York.

DeSmith, 30, started in place of Tristan Jarry (foot) and made 48 saves before leaving with 10:42 remaining in the second overtime due to a lower-body injury. Louis Domingue relieved DeSmith and stopped 17 shots in the final 16:33.

Rakell, 28, did not return to Game 1 following a hit to the chest from defenseman Ryan Lindgren late in the first period.
