Tristan Jarry. — MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – Defenseman David Warsofsky scored with only 1.2 seconds left in overtime to lift the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins to a 3-2 win over Syracuse on Wednesday, but the game’s real hero was standing at the other end of the ice.

The biggest reason the Penguins even made it to the extra session was second-year goaltender Tristan Jarry, who stymied the Crunch on a 5-on-3 power play opportunity early in the third period and made a number of key saves down the stretch.

“Tristan was the difference,” Penguins head coach Clark Donatelli said at the team’s practice facility Thursday. “We didn’t have a very good game, but he gave us a chance to win.
