Maybe it’s being in his native Canada, near the scenic Rockies. Or maybe it’s just his personality. Whatever the reason, Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray seemed upbeat in a short interview with reporters Monday.
“I feel great,” he said after the team practiced in Calgary.
Murray has started just one game this month, he’s 1-1-2 in his past five starts and got pulled on one of those and is yielding playing time to Tristan Jarry.
Jarry, who barely played over the first several weeks of the season as the backup, now is 9-5-0 and leads the NHL in goals-against average, 1.92, and save percentage, .937.
