Murray will defend the road cage in Friday's game versus the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Following a span where he marked a .963 save percentage and eight straight wins, Murray has now allowed four goals in back-to-back road games. Arizona enters this contest with wins in four of the last five outings and converting on five of 14 power-play chances (35.7 percent) in that span, so Murray will need to be on top of his game to right the ship.

Murray will tend the twine on the road versus Anaheim on Friday, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray is riding an eight-game winning streak. Over that stretch, the netminder is sporting a 1.24 GAA and .963 save percentage. The netminder could be facing a light workload, as the Ducks are averaging a league-worst 28.0 shots on goal. Heading into a back-to-back, Casey DeSmith figures to get the net for Saturday's matchup with the Kings.

Murray allowed a goal on 37 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Make it eight straight wins for Murray since returning from a lower-body injury. He's only allowed 10 goals over that stretch of games. Tuesday's win improves his record to 12-5-1 with a 2.78 GAA and .917 save percentage. With back-to-back games Friday and Saturday -- both coming on the road -- expect Murray to start at least one of those contests. The Pens' netminder is 7-0-1 away from in 2018-19.

Murray will guard the home goal Tuesday against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Murray has returned to his dominant form since returning from an extended absence due to a lower-body injury, posting a 7-0-0 record, a 1.37 GAA and a .962 save percentage in his last seven starts. He will take on a Panthers club off to an 0-1-1 start to begin the new season, so Murray should have a good chance to extend his winning streak to eight.

Murray turned aside all 33 shots he faced in Friday's 4-0 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The 24-year-old is the hottest goalie on the planet right now, winning seven straight starts -- including two shutouts -- with a 1.27 GAA and .962 save percentage since returning from a lower-body injury. The Pens have been keeping an eye on his workload after the long layoff, but the need for occasional rest is the only thing that's going to keep Murray off the ice until he cools down.

Murray will be between the pipes for Friday's home matchup with Winnipeg, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray enters Friday's contest on a 6-0-0 run in which he posted a 1.48 GAA and .955 save percentage. The netminder appears to have shaken off whatever was holding him back to start the year, when he registered a 4-5-1 record and 4.08 GAA in 11 outings. If his teammates can't stay out of the box, however, it could be a rough night for the Thunder Bay native, as the Jets are converting at 28.1 percent on the power play (second highest in the league).

Murray will be between the pipes for Wednesday's road clash with the Rangers, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray will be looking for his sixth consecutive win Wednesday. In his previous five outings, the netminder posted a 1.38 GAA and .959 save percentage. The Thunder Bay native may still get the occasional night off to keep him fresh, but he appears to have retaken his spot as the No. 1 option in the crease for coach Mike Sullivan.

Murray will defend the net Saturday against the Blues in St. Louis, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray has hit a groove between the pipes, allowing just three goals over his last three contests in net. He's riding a four-game winning streak since returning from a lower-body injury and should have a decent shot at making it five against a Blues club that's posted a minus-8 goal differential in December.

Murray set aside 27 of 29 shots en route to a 5-2 home win over the Red Wings on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Penguins outshot the Wings by 11 and converted two of three power-play chances in support of Murray, who improves to 8-5-1 through 15 games. Make that four straight wins for Pittsburgh's No. 1 netminder; he desperately needed a run like this after starting the season with just four victories and a horrendous .877 save percentage before finally turning on the heat in mid-December.
