Murray will start Tuesday vs. the Islanders.

Murray allowed two goals on 21 shots in the Penguins' 2-1 loss in New Jersey last Friday. Tristan Jarry started Saturday, so they come back to Murray tonight vs. the Islanders. In his last six starts, Murray has gone 2-1-2 with a 2.68 GAA and .894 SV%. With a ton of injuries in front of him, wins are going to be hard to come by but Murray should turn in strong splits. He stopped 20 of 23 shots in a 4-3 OT win in his first start vs. the Islanders.

Murray allowed two goals on 30 shots in the Penguins 7-2 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday. Murray has had a strong start to the 2019-20 season, stopping 66 of the 71 shots (.930 SV%) through two games.

Murray will start Saturday vs. the Blue Jackets.

Murray surrendered three goals on 41 shots in the Penguins’ season-opening loss to the Sabres on Thursday. Murray delivered a strong performance, but he was just about the only Pittsburgh player to do so.

Murray will start the Penguins season opener vs. the Sabres.

Murray started a career-high 50 games last year, going 29-14-6 with a 2.69 GAA and .919 SV%. It was a nice bounce-back season for Murray, who will try to stay healthy in 2019-20. He has the abilities to be a workhorse for the Penguins but durability has been an issue over the last three seasons. A home matchup with the Sabres makes Murray one of the night’s top options.

Murray allowed three goals on 35 shots in the Penguins 4-1 loss to the Islanders in Game 3. The Penguins have fallen behind 3-0 with Murray allowing a combined 10 goals on 102 shots (.902 SV%).
