  • Penguins' Matt Murray: Turns away 28 saves in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/20/17) Murray saved 28 of 31 shots during Friday's 4-3 win over Florida.

    Despite an underwhelming .896 save percentage and 3.35 GAA, Murray still hasn't lost in regulation this season and owns a 5-0-1 record. Fantasy owners are expecting his ratios to improve moving forward, and Pittsburgh will probably tighten up some defensively, as the Penguins have allowed the sixth-most high-danger scoring chances per 60 minutes (12.8) at five-on-five this season. It's also worth noting that it's a daunting upcoming schedule for the Pens, which begins with a road game against Tampa Bay on Saturday.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Gets starting nod for Friday's contest

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/20/17) Murray will guard the goal in Friday's road game against the Panthers, Josh Yohe of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

    Murray was a bit shaky in his last outing Tuesday against the Rangers, surrendering four goals on 32 shots, but he did enough to pick up his fourth win of the campaign. He'll look to secure a fifth consecutive victory Friday against a Panthers club that's averaging 3.40 goals per game this season, ninth in the NHL.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Still unbeaten in regulation

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Murray saved 28 of 32 shots during Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Rangers. He still hasn't lost in regulation this season.

    Murray entered with a discouraging .899 save percentage and 3.29 GAA through five outings, and his ratios only got worse after Tuesday's mediocre showing. The young netminder is in position to rake up plenty of wins, and Pittsburgh should improve defensively moving forward. It's far too early in the season to panic about Murray's underwhelming start.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Defending cage Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Murray will tend the twine for Tuesday's tilt against the Rangers, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    After a rough start to the year, Murray appears to be back on track, as he is 3-0-0 in his last three outings with a .947 save percentage. In his short career, the netminder has never lost to New York -- posting a 3-0-0 record with a 1.95 GAA. The 23-year-old will be hoping history repeats itself Tuesday so he can extend his winning streak to four games.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Big 43-save win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/15/17) Murray made 43 saves in a 4-3 win over the Panthers on Saturday night. It's his third straight win.

    Murray had a couple sketchy early starts, but seems to have settled into a solid routine. There has been some concern that the departure of Marc-Andre Fleury has had a negative impact on Murray's game -- without a push, the young 'tender's game has seemed weaker. We'll need to watch this to see if there's merit to that hypothesis, but we do have to say we've seen it before in other situations.
