Penguins' Matt Murray: Receives Wednesday's starting nod

Murray will tend the twine for Wednesday's tilt with Washington, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Murray has put on a Jekyll and Hyde act to kick off 2017-18, getting shelled for five and six goals, respectively, in his first two appearances before pitching a shutout Saturday against Nashville. While Murray's play has been trending in a positive direction, he'll be facing Washington's high-octane offense led by Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, who have combined for seven goals and eight assists in just three games.
