  • Senators' Matt Murray: Escapes with win Saturday

    Murray allowed four goals on 37 shots in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Oilers.

    Murray and the Senators faced a 3-1 deficit heading into the third period, but the offense came alive for five goals to earn the 27-year-old his second straight win. This was not a pretty effort from Murray, but he was able to limit Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl to a single assist by the latter despite the Oilers' depth scoring making a stand. For the season, Murray is 2-6-0 with a 3.41 GAA and an .892 save percentage in nine outings. If he can keep getting positive results, he could retake the starting job from Anton Forsberg at some point.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Protecting net versus Oilers

    Murray will protect the road net Saturday versus the Oilers.

    Murray is being rewarded with another start after allowing just one goal on 28 shots against the Flames on Thursday. The 27-year-old will face a tough challenge against Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl on Saturday, so Murray is a risky fantasy play for this contest.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Douses Flames on Thursday

    Murray stopped 27 of 28 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

    Facing a Flames team reeling from a three-game losing streak, Murray was able to extend their misery while earning his first win of the season. The 27-year-old has rarely been reliable this season, as Thursday's win lifted him to 1-6-0 with a 3.32 GAA and an .896 save percentage through eight contests. He'll need to string together a few good performances to challenge Anton Forsberg for the No. 1 goalie job for the Senators. A starting goalie for Saturday's game versus the Oilers is yet to be named.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Guarding net Thursday

    Murray will defend the cage Thursday against Calgary on the road, per TSN 1200 Ottawa.

    Murray has posted an 0-6-0 record with a 3.67 GAA and an .883 save percentage over seven 2021-22 appearances. Calgary has averaged 3.09 goals and 35.15 shots on goal per game this season. Looking ahead, the Senators face Edmonton on the road Saturday before returning home to face Buffalo on Tuesday. Anton Forsberg will likely remain the number one option at goalie going forward, but Murray could receive a starting nod for Saturday's contest with a win Thursday.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Another game postponed

    Murray and the Senators' game versus the Canucks on Saturday has been postponed.

    Saturday's contest was postponed due to Canada's current attendance restrictions, and at this point it isn't clear if Monday's matchup with Edmonton will suffer the same fate.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Thursday's contest postponed

    Murray and Ottawa won't play the Kraken on Thursday due to COVID-19 postponements.

    Murray and the Senators are expected to resume their season Saturday at Vancouver. The 27-year-old has posted an 0-5-0 record with a 4.45 GAA and a .867 save percentage since the start of November.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Gives up six against Leafs

    Murray stopped 34 of 40 shots Saturday, taking a 6-0 loss against Toronto.

    This isn't going to ease the concerns of anyone in Ottawa, as two of Murray's goals allowed came shorthanded on the same Senator power play. The Senators' weak defense isn't giving Murray a lot of help, but the beleaguered netminder isn't doing his part either. Unless you're desperate and he's got a good matchup, he's not a viable fantasy option at the moment.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: In goal against Toronto

    Murray will guard the road cage during Saturday's matchup with the Maple Leafs, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Murray hasn't started for the Senators since Nov. 24 versus San Jose, when he allowed four goals on 27 shots en route to a 6-3 loss. He'll try to pick up his first win of the year in a tough road matchup with a Toronto team that's 12-4-1 at home this year.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Recalled from minors

    Murray (lower body) was called up from AHL Belleville on Tuesday.

    With both Filip Gustavsson and Anton Forsberg in the league's COVID-19 protocols, Murray could play in his first NHL action since Nov. 24 versus the Sharks. The two-time Stanley Cup champion has struggled this year, as he is winless in six outings for Ottawa in which he posted a 3.27 GAA. If the Thunder Bay, Ontario native can rediscover his game, he could avoid another stint in the minors, though he's done little to give fantasy players confidence he has turned things around.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Friday's game postponed

    Murray and the Senators will not face the Penguins on Friday due to COVID-19 postponements.

    Murray likely would've had a chance to face the Penguins, his former team, for the first time in his career due to Anton Forsberg and Filip Gustavsson both landing on the COVID-19 list. The 27-year-old looked solid in two appearances with AHL Belleville, posting a .918 save percentage and a 2.55 GAA. Ottawa's next game is scheduled for Saturday against Toronto.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Suffers lower-body injury

    Murray missed Friday's AHL contest with a lower-body injury.

    It's unclear how severe Murray's injury is or if it will affect his potential return to the NHL anytime soon. An update on his status could be available in the coming days.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Clears waivers, heads to AHL

    Murray cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL Belleville on Sunday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Murray was waived Saturday after posting a 3.27 GAA and .890 save percentage while going 0-5 to start the season. It remains to be seen whether he gets another NHL opportunity this year, but the numbers don't inspire much confidence in his ability to become a trustworthy fantasy option.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Officially waived Saturday

    Murray was waived by the Senators on Saturday.

    News broke Friday that the team was expected to put Murray on waivers, and now the move has been made official. The netminder is in the second season of a four-year, $25 million contract and has struggled immensely in Ottawa, most recently putting up a 3.26 GAA and .890 save percentage in 2021-22. The two-time Stanley Cup winner will likely be reassigned to AHL Belleville if he doesn't get claimed by another team.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Expected to hit waivers

    Murray is expected to be placed on waivers by Ottawa on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Murray is in the second season of his four-year, $25 million deal that he signed with the Senators. Over the last two seasons, he's registered an .892 save percentage and a 3.35 GAA through 33 appearances. Assuming he is officially placed on waivers Saturday, Ottawa will likely use Filip Gustavsson and Anton Forsberg in goal moving forward.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: In crease Wednesday

    Murray will get the starting nod versus San Jose on the road Wednesday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Murray will be making his first appearance on the ice since Nov. 9 versus Boston. While the netminder's stint in the COVID-19 protocols certainly factored into his extended layoff, the fact that he is winless in five games this year no doubt was a consideration as well. If the Thunder Bay, Ontario native continues to struggle, he could see Filip Gustavsson supplant him as the No. 1 option.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Can't hold on versus Sharks

    Murray surrendered four goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks. The last two goals were empty-netters.

    Murray briefly had a 3-2 lead to protect late in the second period, but he allowed a power-play goal to Nick Bonino. The Sharks took control in the third, sending Murray to his fifth loss in six appearances. The 27-year-old has struggled to a 3.26 GAA and an .890 save percentage this year, and he's arguably been outplayed by Filip Gustavsson. The Senators have three goalies on the active roster, but none of them have seized control of the No. 1 job, so Murray will likely still see semi-regular playing time.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Activated off protocols list

    Murray was activated off the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Saturday.

    Murray will be eligible to play Monday against the Avalanche, but at this point is isn't clear if he'll get the starting nod versus Colorado. Murray's gone 0-4-0 while posting a sub-par 3.10 GAA and .897 save percentage through five games this campaign.

  • Senators' Matt Murray: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Murray entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday.

    The Senators now have eight players in the league's virus protocols. If Murray experiences symptoms, he'll have to remain away from the team for a minimum of 10 days. Filip Gustavsson and Anton Forsberg will take over as Ottawa's top-two netminders until Murray is cleared to return.
