The Pittsburgh Penguins and head coach Mike Sullivan have begun making internal decisions regarding their goalie situation. Sullivan has maintained the job was not an open competition but has repeatedly asserted the team has two good goalies. The go-to explanation of decisions has centered on “winning the game in front of us,” but being mindful of the big picture.

With less than 30 games remaining in the regular season and the playoff chase beginning, the Penguins have firmed up their depth chart and discussed it with the goalies.

Recently, Murray rebounded from a November-December swoon. Before his loss in Tampa Bay on Thursday night, the goalie won six in a row. Overall, Murray has improved his paltry numbers to a .285 GAA, and a .900 save percentage, while Jarry earned an All-Star berth.

And the framework going forward has been established.
