Player News - Penguins

Date: Team: Pos:

Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette thinks that Carter Rowney could return to action as early as Wednesday.

Rowney suffered a hand injury October 21 and the Penguins are missing his prowess on the penalty kill. He has only two points in nine games this season so he has no fantasy value.

Matt Murray made 36 saves on 38 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Hard to be mad at Murray for his overall performance against Chicago. Allowing two goals on 38 shots would normally be enough to win a game, but Corey Crawford was better. Murray's record falls to 11-5-1 with a 2.81 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.

Sidney Crosby was held pointless for the fourth time in six games after a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Crosby ended an 11-game goalless streak earlier this week, and picked up an assist against Ottawa on Thursday, but has otherwise been pointless in four of his last six games. Crosby has six goals and 16 points in 22 games.

After missing the morning skate due to an illness, it has been confirmed that Olli Maatta will play tonight vs. Chicago.

With 11 points in 21 games this season, Maatta has started to garner fantasy attention. Get the talented Finn into your lineups tonight.

Frank Corrado will serve as a healthy scratch tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Corrado has played in only three games this season, and will watch from the press box for the sixth straight game. Josh Archibald and Chad Ruhwedel are also expected to be scratched.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will have Matt Murray in goal tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Murray allowed just one goal against the Senators last time out in a 3-1 win. Hopefully, he will perform better tonight against the Blackhawks than he did in his previous outing against them when got got pulled and the Penguins lost 10-1. The 23-year-old netminder has a 11-4-1 record with a 2.86 goals against average and a .906 save percentage.

Carter Rowney was back at Penguins' practice Saturday morning.

He had been out of action since October 21st with a broken hand but seems to be close to a recovery.
Nov 18 - 1:13 PM

Matt Hunwick will return to the Pittsburgh lineup Saturday night against Chicago.

He has missed the last month due to post concussion symptoms. If for some reason you rely on Hunwick, get ready to activate him.

Matt Murray is the Penguins' probable starter Saturday against the Blackhawks.

He is coming off a relatively easy 3-1 win over the Senators in which he stopped 21 shots. The last time Murray faced the Blackhawks he was pulled in an 10-1 lopsided loss on opening night. Look for Murray and the Penguins to come out with a little vengence in mind.

Olli Maata missed Saturday morning's skate due to an illness.

He will be a game-time decision for Saturday night's contest against the Blackhawks.
Nov 18 - 12:54 PM

Bryan Rust recorded an assist in a 3-1 win against Ottawa Thursday night.

Rust has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has two goals and 12 points in 21 games in 2017-18. That puts him well on his way to establishing a new career-high after he recorded 28 points in 57 contests last season. It wouldn't be shocking to see him get about 40 points this time around.
Nov 17 - 8:41 AM

Riley Sheahan scored his first goal of the season on Thursday.

Sheahan was playing in his 20th game and the goal was also his third point of 2017-18. He started the campaign with Detroit, but was acquired by Pittsburgh along with a fifth round pick in exchange for Scott Wilson and a third round selection. Sheahan isn't expected to have fantasy value in standard leagues this season.
Nov 17 - 8:39 AM

Matt Murray stopped 21 of 22 shots in a 3-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Murray made a ridiculous sprawling save in the first to absolutely rob the Senators of a sure goal. He was in complete control all night and it was clear early on the Senators were going to have a tough time getting the puck by him tonight. The 23-year-old goaltender has now won back-to-back starts, improving his record to 11-4-1 with a 2.86 goals against average and a .906 save percentage.
Nov 16 - 10:15 PM

Jake Guentzel scored the game-winning goal in a 3-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Brian Dumoulin's shot took a deflection off of Guentzel's back and found its way in behind Anderson. It was Guentzel's sixth goal of the season, and second in his last three games. His point total has hit 11 in 21 games this season. Patric Hornqvist also scored in the win for the Penguins.
Nov 16 - 10:11 PM

Josh Archibald will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Senators.

Archibald has suited up in just one game this season. He won't have any fantasy value going forward. Frank Corrado will also watch the game from the press box.
