Sens' Alex Burrows sidelined by injury in Game 4

On Friday, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan announced that Matt Murray would start Friday's Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals in place of Marc-Andre Fleury.

"These guys are both competitors", Sullivan said.

He added: "It's a good hard decision to have because we have two guys that are as capable as they are".

Fleury had made it clear he wanted to be back in goal, but wasn't given the opportunity.

"It's not as bad as we thought".

Murray will return to the road net for Game 4 versus the Senators on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. The best-of-seven series is now tied up at two.

Considering the magnitude of this game, especially if the Penguins had lost, Murray played with poise, but admitted there are some challenges when jumping into the pressure of the playoffs after a layoff.

The Microsoft President also added: "The governments of the world should treat this attack as a wake-up call". The problem is that it can take organizations, especially large ones, a long time to install these patches .

Maatta went short side on Anderson, who was cheating to the middle of the crease, and Dumoulin's shot from the point deflected in off the skate of Ottawa defender Dion Phaneuf.

The Penguins won this game while playing the majority of it with five defensemen. All three missed Wednesday's night game.

Crosby's brilliance showed up again midway through the second on a power play after Jean-Gabriel Pageau ripped off the Pittsburgh star's helmet in a scrum around the net. That didn't allow him to score on the initial setup from Jake Guentzel, but helped him to bang in the follow-up for the 2-0 lead.

Early indications at the Penguins' morning skate pointed toward Murray getting the start with Pittsburgh looking to even the series on the road in Ottawa.

Credit to the Senators for their tight checking and defensive trap, which helped neutralize Pittsburgh's speed and offensive capabilities.

Following that initial flurry in the first, the Senators had little going right until the last two minutes of the second when Ryan found MacArthur with a crafty backdoor pass for Ottawa's first goal.

During the 2016-2017 regular season, Murray served as the Penguins' starting goaltender en route to making 49 appearances. "They're doing a good job in controlling our breakouts and when we get it we don't really get the opportunities that we want".
