Senators' Matt Murray: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Thursday's matchup with Montreal.

The Senators have yet to announce a starter, but Murray could be between the pipes for Thursday night's clash with the Canadiens. The 26-year-old backstop has been sidelined since March 10 with an upper-body injury.

Senators' Matt Murray: Hasn't been cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) has yet to be cleared to play, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Murray has been practicing since Monday, but he evidently still isn't ready for game action ahead of Thursday's matchup with Montreal. Filip Gustavsson will continue to serve as Ottawa's No. 1 netminder until Murray is ready to rock.

Senators' Matt Murray: Practicing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) participated in Monday's practice, Matt Tidcombe of the Senators' official site reports.

Murray said he felt "really good" about Monday's session, calling it a "full practice." The 26-year-old is considered day-to-day for the time being. There's a chance that he'll be ready for Thursday's game versus the Canadiens. Until he gains clearance, Filip Gustavsson and Anton Forsberg should hold down the fort in net.

Senators' Matt Murray: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Monday, CapFriendly reports.

Murray has already missed the last five games, so he'll be eligible to return to the active roster once he's healthy. The team announced that he was dealing with a week-to-week injury, but he doesn't seem to have a clear timetable right now.

Senators' Matt Murray: Downgraded to week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per general manager Pierre Dorion, Murray (upper body) is now considered week-to-week with his upper-body injury, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Murray has been labeled day-to-day since suffering an upper-body during warmups ahead of Sunday's game versus Toronto, but his recovery clearly hasn't been progressing as well as initially expected. Joey Daccord (leg) and Marcus Hogberg (lower body) are both unavailable as well, so for now, Filip Gustavsson will take over as Ottawa's No. 1 netminder.

Senators' Matt Murray: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) is still considered day-to-day with his upper-body injury, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

The Senators hope to have Murray back at practice soon, so there's a good chance he'll be ready to return Monday against Calgary. In the meantime, look for Joey Daccord to start between the pipes in Wednesday's clash with the Canucks.

Senators' Matt Murray: Unavailable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) will not dress for Monday's contest against the Canucks.

Murray suffered an injury in warmups prior to Sunday's contest against the Maple Leafs and is still dealing with the effects. It's unclear how serious the injury is, and until another update is available, he'll be considered questionable for Wednesday's rematch with Vancouver.

Senators' Matt Murray: Won't start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) left warmups early and will not start Sunday against Toronto, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

It's unclear what happened to Murray in warmups but it will be Joey Daccord in goal Sunday. Ottawa plays Vancouver on Monday, and Murray will be questionable for that contest.

March 15, 2021 02:44 AM

Senators' Matt Murray: Goes distance in ugly defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray made 29 saves in a 7-1 loss to Edmonton on Wednesday.

Things got rough early and often for Murray, who neither looked particularly sharp nor received much in the way of defensive help. The result was his fourth appearance in which he'd given up more than five goals and the ninth with four or more goals allowed. Murray dropped to 7-11-1 with a dreadful 3.84 GAA and .880 save percentage in his first season in Ottawa.

Senators' Matt Murray: Holds his own in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray made 31 saves on 34 shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Flames.

Murray didn't let the Flames get ahead in the contest, and he put together a fairly solid outing despite allowing it to get to overtime. The 26-year-old goalie improved to 7-11-1 with a 3.66 GAA and an .885 save percentage through 21 games (19 starts). Next up for Murray and the Senators is a three-game series in Edmonton, where he'll be tasked with quieting the Oilers' big three of Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Senators' Matt Murray: Facing Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will guard the cage in Calgary on Sunday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

Murray will get back to work after he allowed four goals on 11 shots before he was yanked against the Flames on Thursday. Still struggling to string together good performances, the 26-year-old owns a 3.72 GAA and .883 save percentage alongside a 6-11-1 record. Murray has allowed 12 goals on 102 shots in four appearances against the Flames this season.

Senators' Matt Murray: Blitzed in first period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray gave up four goals on 11 shots before he was replaced by Joey Daccord in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Flames.

Murray lasted only one period in his latest disaster outing. The 26-year-old goalie dropped to 6-11-1 with a 3.72 GAA and an .883 save percentage in 20 games. Murray's numbers inspire virtually no confidence, but the Senators will likely keep rolling with him unless Daccord significantly outperforms him.

Senators' Matt Murray: Facing Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will patrol the crease during Thursday's road clash with Calgary, TSN Calgary's Salim Nadim Valji reports.

Senators' Matt Murray: Shines against Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray made 27 saves in Monday's 5-1 win over the Flames.

A Milan Lucic power-play goal in the second period ruined his shutout bid, but Murray still put together one of his best performances of the season. The 26-year-old netminder is now 6-10-1 with a rough 3.55 GAA and .888 save percentage, as he continues to alternate strong outings (allowing two goals or less in four of his last seven starts) with poor ones (coughing up 16 total goals in the other three).

March 2, 2021 10:52 AM
Senators' Matt Murray: Draws start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will guard the cage for Monday's home showdown against Calgary, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Murray was blasted for six goals on 33 shots against the Flames on Saturday, but the Senators are throwing him right back into the fire Monday. The 26-year-old is still looking to find his groove this season; he currently owns a 3.72 GAA and .884 save percentage through 18 appearances.

Senators' Matt Murray: Gets hook against Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray stopped 27 of 33 shots before being replaced by Joey Daccord to begin the third period of Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Flames.

Calgary had a 3-0 lead barely 11 minutes into the first period and cruised from there, and while Murray didn't look particularly sharp, he also wasn't getting any help from his defense. The defeat snaps his personal three-game winning streak, but overall Murray is 5-10-1 with a rough 3.72 GAA and .884 save percentage to begin his first season outside of Pittsburgh.

Senators' Matt Murray: Facing Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray is slated to start between the pipes in Saturday's home game versus Calgary, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Murray was sharp in his last start Thursday against the Flames, stopping 29 of 30 shots en route to a comfy 6-1 victory. He'll attempt to secure a fourth straight win in a rematch with the same Calgary club Saturday.

February 26, 2021 12:28 AM
Senators' Matt Murray: Notches third straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray turned aside 29 shots in a 6-1 win over Calgary.

Murray has suddenly turned in a three-game winning streak after dropping each of his previous six starts. He owns a stellar .929 save percentage during his current streak and, with the young Senators playing better in front of him as of late, could finally be entering the streaming conversation for fantasy managers in need of goaltending help. Murray and the Senators draw two more tilts with Calgary on Saturday and Monday before embarking upon a six-game road trip.
