Penguins to start Murray in goal for Game 4

Penguins to start Murray in goal for Game 4

Senators coach Guy Boucher gave full credit to the Penguins for their effort and didn't feel the change in goal had any real effect on Ottawa. Neither goalie was available to the media on the morning of Game 4, as is customary for Penguins goalies on gameday.

The Senators made a game of it, reducing Pittsburgh's lead to just one goal late in the third period.

Fleury was yanked after allowing four goals on nine shots in the Penguins ugly 5-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators in Game 3 of the series Wednesday night at the Canadian Tire Centre.

Considering the magnitude of this game, especially if the Penguins had lost, Murray played with poise, but admitted there are some challenges when jumping into the pressure of the playoffs after a layoff.

"It's not going to go 16 games in a row perfectly", said Fleury, a likely candidate to move elsewhere this summer with the expansion draft lying ahead next month.

"I thought he was really solid in there", Sullivan said.




He added: "It's a good hard decision to have because we have two guys that are as capable as they are".

Murray will be situated between the pipes for his first start in the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. "We made it for Game 4". It's a somewhat similar situation to last season, when Murray suffered a concussion in the Penguins' regular season finale and sat out the team's first two playoff games before taking over for Fleury and helping lead Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup.

Fleury had been excelling as the starter, pitching shutouts in Game 2 against the Senators and Game 7 of a second-round series against Washington. He has a 9-6 record with a.924 save percentage in the postseason. "We don't always expect them to agree with our decisions, but we hope that they respect our decision".

Pittsburgh's Justin Schultz, Bryan Rust and Patric Hornqvist all remain out with injuries. The 35-year-old exited Game 3 with an apparent left leg injury. But like I said before, all I can really do is kind of jump in and try not to think about it. "You've just got to get used to that skating motion again and what that does to your legs and your body".

The victory evened the series 2-2.
