Analysis: Since returning from a broken hand earlier this month, Murray has won each of his four starts and yielded only five goals in doing so. With Marc-Andre Fleury struggling of late, the 22-year-old looks to be in line towards taking over as Pittsburgh's No. 1 goaltender for good.
Nov. 6 5:35 AM PT6:35 AM MT7:35 AM CT8:35 AM ET13:35 GMT21:35 6:35 AM MST8:35 AM EST17:35 UAE8:35 ETNaN:� BRT - Murray stopped 32 shots for his second career shutout as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the San Jose Sharks 5-0 on Saturday night.

Analysis: Murray is getting closer to being activated from injured reserve, though last season's playoff hero may at first be eased in as the backup to Marc-Andre Fleury until he gets completely up to speed.
