The Penguins bounced back after an embarrassing Game 3 loss to the Senators to even the Eastern Conference finals Friday behind a solid performance from goalie Matt Murray, who earned the win in his first playoff start of the season.
Murray replaced Marc-Andre Fleury in the first period of a one-sided Game 3 loss on Wednesday after Fleury allowed four goals on nine shots. Murray carried his stellar play into Friday in Ottawa. He stopped 24 of 26 shots in the Penguins’ 3-2 win.
The 22-year-old Murray took over for Fleury during the Penguins’ Stanley Cup championship last spring, but had missed the postseason thus far after suffering a lower-body injury during warmups before Game 1 of Pittsburgh’s first-round series against Columbus.
