Penguins goaltender Murray close to return
Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray is nearing a return from a concussion that has sidelined him for two weeks. Murray faced shots Tuesday before the rest of the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions took the ice. Coach Mike Sullivan says the team is “encouraged” by Murray’s progress. Sullivan expects Murray to travel with the Penguins when they begin a three-game road trip against the New York Rangers today. The Penguins are 4-3 since Murray went down.
