  • Penguins' Matt Murray: Underwhelms in tune-up game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/7/19) Murray stopped just 11 of 15 shots for Team Canada in Tuesday's pre-tournament clash against Austria.

    Murray played two periods of action before the reigns were turned over to Carter Hart to close out the game. The 24-year-old Murray's underwhelming performance was on par with his disappointing playoff performance in which he posted a subpar 3.02 GAA and .906 save percentage in four games versus the Islanders. Still, the Thunder Bay native should be the go-to netminder for Canada heading into the 2019 IIHF World Championship.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Named to Team Canada roster

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/19) Murray will be joining Team Canada for the 2019 IIHF World Championship in Slovakia.

    While some will see this as an opportunity for Murray to work on his game in a competitive setting, others will see it as another chance for the oft-injured netminder to get hurt. Murray had an up-and-down season that once again saw him miss time due to injuries. The Thunder Bay native fell short of the 30-win mark by just one victory, while matching his career high with four shutouts. Since taking over as the full-time No. 1 in Pittsburgh following the departure of Marc-Andre Fleury, the 24-year-old Murray has failed to impress the Penguins faithful and will no doubt face further scrutiny heading into the 2019-20 campaign.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Comes up short

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/19) Murray allowed two goals on 25 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Islanders in Game 4 on Tuesday.

    There's plenty of blame to go around when a team gets swept, but not much should head Murray's way. He was arguably the Penguins' best player in the series, and without him, the Penguins probably wouldn't have had a shot to win Games 1 and 4 late in regulation or overtime. Still, the numbers for Murray don't look particularly good. He posted just a .908 save percentage in the series and has lost eight of his last nine postseason starts dating back to last year.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Set to start Game 4

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/19) Murray is slated to be between the pipes for Tuesday's Game 4 home tilt with the Islanders, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    While the focus on the Pens' problems in the series has been on the lack of offensive contributions and defensive lapses, Murray hasn't exactly been stellar, as he is sporting a .902 save percentage and 3.33 GAA. If the netminder can step up his game, it could be the spark the rest of the lineup needs to avoid a first-round sweep.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Sunk by Isles in Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/19) Murray stopped 32 of 35 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders in Game 3 of their first-round series.

    New York's final goal was scored into an empty net. Murray hasn't been terrible in the series but he also hasn't been a difference-maker, posting a 3.33 GAA and .902 save percentage as the Pens have fallen into an 0-3 hole. The 24-year-old will need to up his game if the team is going to avoid being swept on home ice Tuesday.
