Maple Leafs' Matt Murray: Feels he should have had OT winner
Murray made 29 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday.
He played a solid game, giving up two power-play goals along the way. But Murray was upset with himself after the game: "That one in overtime is one I need to come up with... It just knuckled a bit, kind of handcuffed me." The game had a real postseason feel to it, and both teams played intense, focused hockey. Murray made several great blocks along the way and bounced back after being bowled over by Anthony Cirelli. Murray is now 5-1-2 with a 2.63 GAA and .921 save percentage.... See More ... See Less

Maple Leafs' Matt Murray: Sharp in third win
Murray made 34 saves in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Devils.
The netminder had plenty of luck on his side, as three potential New Jersey goals got disallowed over the course of the night -- two for goalie interference and one that was ruled to have been the result of a kicking motion by Erik Haula. Murray also made some big stops of his own though, and since returning from a groin injury he's 3-0-1 while allowing eight total goals in the four starts. Ilya Samsonov (knee) could have an uphill climb to regain a significant workload once he gets healthy if Murray keeps up this form.... See More ... See Less

Maple Leafs' Matt Murray: Second straight outstanding game
Murray made 30 saves in a 3-2 overtime loss to New Jersey on Thursday.
Murray was the reason the Leafs managed a point in the game. He made some extraordinary saves, including an acrobatic cross-crease drive on Jack Hughes early in the second period to keep his team within one goal. Murray has been the difference changer in two games since his return from injury, and the Leafs would be wise to give him plenty of rest to help him remain healthy. Keep an eye on his activations. He's going to help you when he's in the crease.... See More ... See Less

Maple Leafs' Matt Murray: Collects first win as Leaf
Murray made 35 saves in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.
Making his first start since Toronto's opener and facing the team he won back-to-back Stanley Cups with earlier in his career, Murray allowed two goals in less than two minutes early in the second period but was otherwise sharp as he picked up his first win as a Maple Leaf. Ilya Samsonov (knee) doesn't yet have a timetable for his return, so Murray could get a chance to lock down the No. 1 job for Toronto if he plays well -- assuming that he's able to stay healthy himself, of course....

Murray (groin) has started skating in a limited capacity but is no closer to getting back into action, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports Wednesday.
Murray's initial timeline was at least four weeks on the shelf but this latest update would seem to indicate he will be out beyond that mark.

Maple Leafs' Matt Murray: Out at least four weeks
Murray will be sidelined for at least four weeks with an adductor injury after the Maple Leafs placed him on the long-term injured reserve list Saturday.
This is unfortunately a scenario that was feared when Toronto acquired Murray over the summer given Murray's injury history. With Murray sidelined, Ilya Samsonov will likely get the bulk of the Leafs' starts. Murray and Samsonov were in competition for the starting job going into the season, so this is a big opportunity for Samsonov to gain an edge in that battle. As previously reported, Toronto called up Erik Kallgren to serve as Samsonov's understudy.... See More ... See Less
