Murray has received the starting nod for Wednesday's matchup with the Islanders.

Murray is riding a three-game winning streak with a 1.94 GAA, so it should come as no surprise that he appears to be on the verge of overtaking Marc-Andre Fleury for the starting job in Pittsburgh. The 22-year-old carries a 7-1-0 record into a matchup with an Isles squad that's 21st in the league in goals per game (2.38). Considering his outstanding numbers, the only knock on Murray as a fantasy asset at this point is his timeshare -- an issue that may resolve itself prior to the trade deadline.
