PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins will be without goaltender Matt Murray for an unknown period of time.
Murray was supposed to be in goal for Game 1 of the Penguins’ opening round series with the Columbus Blue Jackets. However, he suffered a lower-body injury during pregame warmups.
As a result, Marc-Andre Fleury started and turned aside 31 shots to backstop the Penguins to a 3-1 victory.
Today, head coach Mike Sullivan said there is no timeframe for Murray’s return.
Coach Sullivan on Murray: “Matt’s status is the same. It’s a lower-body injury. There’s no timeframe.”
