  • Penguins' Matt Murray: Notches win in return to crease

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1:03 am ET) Murray turned aside 38 of 41 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kings.

    Making his first appearance in over a month, Murray didn't look particularly rusty en route to his first win since Oct. 25. Casey DeSmith seized the Penguins' No. 1 goalie job while Murray was sidelined with a lower-body injury, but the 24-year-old will now get a chance to start winning it back.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Pitted against league's cellar dweller

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/15/18) Murray will start in goal against the visiting Kings on Saturday, according to Josh Getzoff of PensTV.

    While Murray hasn't explicitly been confirmed as the starter, the writing is on the wall that he'll do the honors since Getzoff relayed from Penguins coach Mike Sullivan that he'd give both Friday's starter Casey DeSmith and Murray a turn in the back-to-back set of games. Of course, this will be Murray's first game back after a lower-body injury sent him to injured reserve. He'll square off against a Kings team with an egregious minus-30 goal differential and the worst record in the league at 11-20-2. This must be what Sullivan meant when he said he wanted to put Murray in the "best possible position to be successful."

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Activated off injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/12/18) Murray (lower body) was taken off injured reserve Wednesday.

    While the Penguins have yet to name a starter for Wednesday's matchup with Chicago, the fact that Murray is back on the active roster means he is at least capable of serving as the backup. The Thunder Bay native will likely have to earn his job back from Casey DeSmith, who is 9-4-4 on the year with two shutouts and a .925 save percentage, which is significantly better than Murray's 4-5-1 record and .877 save percentage.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Could suit up Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/11/18) Murray (lower body) could dress against the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Even if Murray is healthy enough to be included in the lineup, coach Mike Sullivan may opt to keep him on the bench in order to give him some more time to get back to 100 percent. Unless the Thunder Bay native rediscovers his game, he could be forced to share the net with Casey DeSmith even once he's back to 100 percent.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Sidelined Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/10/18) Murray (lower body) will not be in the lineup versus the Islanders on Monday.

    Murray split time in the non-starters net with Tristan Jarry at practice, so it would appear he is nearing a return to action. When the netminder is cleared to play remains to be seen, but he could struggle to pry the crease away from Casey DeSmith, who has performed well in the Thunder Bay native's absence.
