Penguins' Matt Murray: Nearing return to practice
The Penguins are encouraged with the progress of Murray (hand). "Matt's getting real close to joining the team for practice," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He's been skating, working with our goalie coach Mike Bales. His next step is to join the team (for practice)."
Murray entered training camp as the likely favorite to start in goal after tying an NHL record by winning 15 games in a single postseason as a rookie in 2015-16. Marc-Andre Fleury has gotten off to a very good start, however, and it remains to be seen which tender will see the majority of starts whenever Murray returns.
