Michal Neuvirth blocked 25 of 29 shots in the 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh in the final Stadium Series game of the season on Saturday night.

Sidney Crosby drew first blood against Neuvirth, scoring midway through the first period. The second goal to make it past Neuvirth came on a Pittsburgh power-play during the second. Neuvirth let in two additional goals in the third leading to the loss. He faced 29 shots and had a save percentage of .862, which is lower than his season average of .888. This was his second loss in a row. He dropped a 4-1 game to the Capitals Wednesday night when he also allowed four goals on 29 shots.

Matt Murray made 36 saves on 38 shots Saturday night as the Penguins downed the Flyers 4-2 in an outdoor stadium game.

Murray was perfect on 14 shots in the first and lasted 11:14 into the second before giving up a goal to Jakub Voracek. This raises his recent record to 6-2-2 in the last 10 games with a save percentage of .935. Murray has been sharing the net with Marc-Andre Fleury and has overshadowed him so far this season with a 23-7-3 record compared to Fleury’s 15-7-2. That makes him a great differentiator on a fantasy player’s lineup.

Off balance, Shaw rifled a shot at the net and crashed into the boards, but it was good enough for the 14th consecutive win by the Habs over the Leafs. Shaw’s assist came on a power-play marker by Max Pacioretty in the second period.

Much in part to Raanta's two fantastic overtime saves immediately before Mika Zibanejad's winner. The victory lifts his record to 12-5 with a .920 save percentage and a 2.43 GAA.
