Murray (personal) has left the team to return to Ontario following the passing of his father.

Murray missed two games to attend to a family matter before joining his team on their Californian road-trip. It seemed like Murray was on-pace to start Wednesday’s game but his dad passed away so Murray will return home for an indefinite period of time.

Staal left Tuesday’s game with a hip flexor injury and did not return.

Staal departed the game early in the third period after playing 14:09 and did not return. “We’ll know more Wednesday,” head coach Alain Vigneault said post-game as he did not have an update on the veteran defenseman. It doesn’t sound like injury is overly serious, but he should be considered questionable for Thursday’s game vs. the Sabres.
