News came down this morning about Matt Murray, who yesterday was reported as being evaluated with a head injury.

Not good news.

Two takeaways here:

  1. Good on the Penguins for being transparent about it being a concussion and not doing what some teams do and label it an upper-body injury
  2. Mike Sullivan isn’t wrong. Casey DeSmith had bad stretches early in the season. Tristan Jarry hasn’t been great lately. However, both of the goalies have been stellar for stretches this season as well.

Let’s hope that this next stretch of games for however long the Penguins are without Matt Murray with feature play of the stellar variety and give him as much time as he needs to recover.
