Murray dished out an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Flyers. Murray has been surprisingly productive over the past month, registering nine assists in his last 17 games and three in the last five. He's still without a goal through 42 games with the Devils, so fantasy managers in search of offense can probably overlook Murray outside the deepest of leagues.
Murray notched three assists in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals. The blueliner set up a goal for the Devils in every period, extending his point streak to three games in the process. Murray had an awful start to his first campaign in New Jersey but is finally heating up, and he has 10 points (all helpers) through 28 games -- with six of those assists coming during his scoring streak.
Murray recorded two assists and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Bruins. Murray's best performance of the season went to waste, as New Jersey blew a two-goal lead in the third period. The 27-year-old blueliner's first multi-point performance raised his season point total to six, all assists. To Murray's credit, he actually has a plus-3 rating, which is tied for third-best on the underwhelming Devils team. That's a nice feather in his cap but not a reason to target Murray in the fantasy realm.
Murray had one shot, one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals. This was a typical stat line for the third-pairing defenseman, who has just four assists without a goal in 23 games this season. It's safe to say a change of scenery from Columbus to New Jersey has done nothing to reinvigorate Murray's career, as the oft-injured second overall pick from the 2012 draft simply isn't an impact player.
Murray was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports. This is a bit of a surprise, and head coach Lindy Ruff didn't provide much detail about this decision. The 27-year-old doesn't have much offensive upside -- he's recorded just two points through 12 games this year -- but he is typically a solid defensive presence. He'll aim to get back in the lineup for Sunday's rematch versus the Caps.
