Murray stopped 33 of 34 shots in a 4-1 victory over the Blues on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

It hasn't been a banner year for the 23-year-old, but this was one of Murray's best performances of the season. He needed to be good early and often in this one, and he was the Penguins' best player. He's still allowing two many goals overall, but Murray is 4-0-1 in his last five starts and has battle quite well since losing his dad. Murray should continue to rack of victories as the Penguins steam roll towards the playoffs.

Murray will be the road starter versus the Blues on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Murray is still looking to turn things around this year, as he has a 2.96 GAA and a .903 save percentage. Things haven't gotten any better since he rejoined the Penguins either, as in his last four contests he has a 3.20 GAA and a .904 save percentage. The Blues have scored 2.97 goals per contest, so Murray is going to have to be on his game in this one.

Murray gave up three goals on 36 shots Friday in a 4-3 shootout loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Though Murray saw his four-game winning streak end and conceded three times, marking the third straight game where he's given up three or more, this was actually his best performance in February. This defeat isn't a stellar showing by any means, but it's something to build on and a sign he could be starting his move back toward the form he's shown the past two seasons.

Murray will get the starting nod against the Stars on Friday, Sean Shapiro of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray is riding a three-game winning streak, despite having allowed four goals in each of his previous two outings. Fortunately for the netminder, he has the luxury of playing behind the three-headed monster that is Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel. With those guys rolling (a combined 22 points in their last four contests), the 23-year-old Murray doesn't have to be even close to perfect to secure a win. If the youngster can get hot himself, the Pens could be nearly unstoppable.

Murray allowed four goals on just 25 shots during Tuesday's 5-4 win over Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

Once again, Murray wasn't strong, but his offense bailed him out, and he's now won three consecutive outings. The 23-year-old netminder boasts a solid 18-12-1 record, but his .903 save percentage and 2.97 GAA are nothing to write home about. It wouldn't be surprising if he begin to slowly improve those marks over the coming weeks, but fantasy owners would love to see some evidence of improvement sooner than later.

Murray will tend the twine against the Golden Knights on Tuesday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being the starting netminder for the home squad, Murray is unlikely to hear the biggest roar of the crowd when the starting lineups are announced, as former-Penguin Marc-Andre Fleury makes his first trip back to Pittsburgh since being taken in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft. The 23-year-old Murray has earned consecutive wins in his return to the crease and will look to keep rolling versus a Vegas squad that is scoring 3.37 goals per game (second highest in the league).

Murray saved 29 of 33 shots during Friday's 7-4 win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

This was a tape-measuring matchup, and Murray did his part to help Pittsburgh pull out the victory. Obviously, it wasn't his sharpest outing, and he now owns an underwhelming .905 save percentage and 2.93 GAA for the campaign. However, there's potential for Murray and the Penguins to hit full stride leading into the playoffs, so this could prove to be a buy-low spot. Current owners should probably remain patient.

Murray will guard the net Friday against the Capitals, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray returned to the crease Tuesday evening in magnificent form, stopping 40 of the 42 shots he faced to pick up his 16th victory of the campaign. He faces a tough matchup to keep things rolling Friday, taking on a Capitals club that put up 3.20 goals per game during January.

Murray stopped 40 of 42 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Out since Jan. 7 as he dealt with the loss of his father, Murray made an emotional return to the ice and came up with a number of huge saves early to keep the Pens in the game until their offense could take control. Expect the 23-year-old to reclaim the starting job now that he's back, although he'll likely give way to Casey DeSmith for one of this weekend's back-to-back games.

Murray (personal) will get the starting nod against the Sharks on Tuesday, Jesse Marshall of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray will return to the crease for the first time since the passing of his father, having last played Jan. 7. With the Thunder Bay native back in full swing, he should see the bulk of the starts moving forward, despite the emergence of Casey DeSmith as a reliable No. 2 option.
