Paul Zeise: Goaltending will decide Penguins-Capitals, and Matt Murray has the edge

The Penguins are 9-1 in playoff series against the Capitals and have beaten them in each of the past two postseasons. That history will be a primary reason most people will pick the Penguins to win the Eastern Conference semifinals, which begin this week.  

20 Penguins Thoughts: Two Cups … but not enough credit for Matt Murray

Matt Murray basically can’t lose when it comes to the NHL postseason, as last week he reached 25 career playoff wins in fewer games (36) than any goalie ever.

Pittsburgh Penguins Patric Hornqvist Will Miss Game 5

Pittsburgh Penguins Patric Hornqvist Will Miss Game 5

The Pittsburgh Penguins will play at least one more game without forward Patric Hornqvist. They did not seem to miss Hornqvist much in Game 4 of their first-round series with the Philadelphia Flyers, picking up a 5-0 win, and Matt Murray's second shutout of the series. With a three-games-to-one series lead, the Penguins are not taking any chances with Hornqvist. Patric Hornqvist will not play for Penguins in Game 5 https://t.co/IGYGFOT3mx via @TribLIVE — Jonathan Bombulie (@BombulieTrib) April 20, 2018 It is unclear how much longer Hornqvist will be out.

Because everyone loves a listicle! Everyone on the internet loves a list, it’s a scientific fact.

Matt Murray got off to another fast start against the Flyers. It resulted in another Penguins’ win.

The Penguins aggressive mindset helps create offense

The Penguins aggressive mindset helps create offense

During the first period of Game 3 on Sunday, the Penguins quickly created some offense. Their aggressive mentality helped make it happen. On Sunday in Philadelphia, the Penguins were trying to weather the storm in the first period, as the Flyers were giving Pittsburgh all it had, and the Wells Fargo Center was ready to explode if the home team had taken the lead. The Penguins were taking some punches, but goaltender Matt Murray kept the score sheet clean. Then, at the midway point of the opening frame, Sidney Crosby and the Penguins struck (and never looked back in Game 3). “How did...

Penguins playoff thoughts: Dumoulin shining, Sullivan and Murray too

Penguins playoff thoughts: Dumoulin shining, Sullivan and Murray too

Off day thoughts about the Pittsburgh Penguins. How Brian Dumoulin is thriving offensively, Matt Murray’s amazing bounce backs, Sullivan kills up 2 games 1. On a team full of stars, Brian Dumoulin doesn’t stand out. Dumoulin is a smooth skater and very fluid player and defender, however his puck-handling skills even compared to his defensemen peers are average at best. He doesn’t have a tremendous shot from the blueline, nor often look to shoot it, as 7 goals in 243 career regular season games will speak to. But, to be fair, five of them have come this year in Dumoulin’s third full...

Ron Cook: Matt Murray quickly is on his way to being one of the great NHL postseason goaltenders

The biggest development from Game 1 may be getting overlooked

The biggest development from Game 1 may be getting overlooked

With highlight reel goals from Sid and Geno, Matt Murray’s record-tying third straight playoff shutout, and beating the Flyers for the fifth consecutive time this season, Kris Letang’s playoff return isn’t getting the attention it deserves. There were lots of things for Penguins fans to be excited about before Game 1 last night. Perennial postseason overachiever Derick Brassard was making his Penguins playoff debut after missing the last five regular season games. Matt Murray, for the first time in his young career, was starting the playoffs with no goalie controversy in sight (sorry,...

Matt Murray adds to Penguins postseason save legacy

Penguins postseason history doesn’t lack for incredible saves.

Why Penguins-Flyers could be such a special series

The Penguins didn’t play their best defense down the stretch. Matt Murray’s numbers were so-so during the regular season, his goals-against average sandwiched between Jimmy Howard and Cory Schneider among goaltenders who played at least 40 games.

2017-18 Penguins team awards

Fun and creative honors for members of the Penguins! Rookie of the year Finalists: Tristan Jarry, Dominik Simon, Zach Aston-Reese Winner: Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Jarry started 23 games this season for Pittsburgh, and for a crucial stretch in the months of December+January he started a team-high 13 games going 7-4 with a .923 save% and 2 shutouts. That helped the Pens stay afloat while Matt Murray was injured and had to deal with the loss of this father. Why no mention of Casey DeSmith? Well the NHL says: “Any player at least 26 years of age (by September...
