If they were goals he had no chance on because the team failed that’s on thing but he’s been giving up at least one if not two absolutely horrible goals we haven’t seen from him the last two years. He’s been brutal and Fleury was rightfully ridiculed for that period where we was playing just as bad as Murray is right now.

Murray doing his best Grant Fuhr impression these days. Give up four goals but get the win and try for another Cup.

He's resumed practice. Some suggestion he got hit in a sensitive spot in his groin.

Sounds like just a scare.

To be fair on Murray: He's looked a lot better and more comfortable lately Might've dodged a big bullet there.

Nobody is sure exactly what happened yet. If he took a shot off a weird spot or what. Mackey/Werner said he was getting helped by the trainers for awhile. Then, as the team was huddled around whiteboard, he was still kind of back behind everyone, still trying to stretch something out. He finished practice, but Mackey/Werner both said he didn't look quite right or 100%.....or Elliott decided to dress up in Penguins gear and is slumped in the fetal position after last nights loss.

Funny exchange. I asked Murray what happened, if he's OK.
MM: Yeah, I’m good.
Me: I was really expecting you to talk in depth about an injury
MM: We'll skip that one
Murray laughed. On with our days.

I just thought this was an interesting piece of information. I know we all say a lot of goalies get beat high glove, but man if this is close to accurate Murray's glove is quite awful....doubly worse than league average.
