Murray will see the Capitals in Sunday's home start, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Penguins have already clinched a playoff spot for the 12th consecutive season, but we wouldn't expect Murray to rest on his laurels against a challenging Capitals team that features star winger Alex Ovechkin, who will be making his 1,000th career appearance. A win for Murray would be his 27th on the season and third straight with two regular-season games left after this one.

Murray made 24 saves in a 5-2 win over Montreal on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

He now has back-to-back wins. Murray needs to stay healthy and deliver the proverbial mail this postseason. These games are a good lead in to that.

Murray will be in the crease against the visiting Canadiens on Saturday, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray has elevated his game since the All-Star break, with his save percentage climbing from .903 to a .914 mark that is much more conductive to racking up the fantasy points. Interestingly enough, Murray has only faced the Habs once in his career, getting the best of them in a Jan. 18, 2017 start when he pushed aside 19 of 20 shots on the road.

Murray made 28 saves in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

Murray came out on top despite allowing one goal in each regulation frame of this tightly-contested matchup. While Pittsburgh's stellar offense usually masks the young goalie's weaknesses, it's a bit concerning to see that Murray's allowed at least three goals in each of his last five starts.

Murray will tend the twine for Thursday's clash with the Devils, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray will be making his fourth straight appearance in goal, despite posting a 3.76 GAA in his previous four outings. Coach Mike Sullivan would seem to be allowing the netminder to work through this slump in the hopes of having him firing on all cylinders once the playoffs begin. Without a veteran backstop in the organization, the Penguins' chances of three-peating will succeed or fail on the back of Murray.

Murray coughed up four goals on 25 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 road loss to the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

This certainly wasn't the expected outcome for Murray against a Red Wings team that's already been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, but Murray's still greasing the gears having missed nine straight games with a concussion between Feb. 27 and March. 15. It's entirely possible that Murray's simply anxious to get started on the postseason, as he'll be vying for his third Stanley Cup championship not long after turning 24 years old.

Murray will get the starting nod versus the Red Wings on Tuesday, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray can probably be expected to carry the bulk of the load the rest of the way in order to fine tune his game ahead of the postseason. The netminder is still shaking off a little rust from his nine-game absence due to a concussion. The Thunder Bay native has been subpar in his three games back, as he posted a 3.63 GAA and 1-1-1 record. If Pittsburgh is going to three-peat, the 23-year-old is going to need to perform significantly better come playoff time.

Murray made 41 saves on 44 shots in a 5-4 overtime win against the Flyers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Murray picked up the win, even if his personal numbers weren't ideal. Over his last three games the 23-year-old has allowed 11 goals, and on the season he has a 2..86 GAA. The playoffs are getting close, and the Penguins would really like Murray to find his footing in time. However, based on his recent performance there is reason for concern.

Murray will be the home starter against the Flyers on Sunday, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray has never been able to find his footing this year, as during the times he's been healthy he's posted a 2.86 GAA and a .908 save percentage. The Flyers have scored 2.99 goals per game, so this rivalry outing won't be an easy one for the 23-year-old.

Murray allowed four goals on 34 shots during Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

This was just Murray's second game back from a concussion that sidelined him for nine contests, and he's lost both outings with a total of seven goals allowed. It's been a year-long struggle for the back-to-back Stanley Cup champ, as Murray sports a disappointing .908 save percentage and 2.86 GAA. However, backstopping the highest scoring team in the league since the All-Star break should help him remain a solid source of wins over the final weeks of the season.
