Penguins' Matt Murray returns from concussion, shuts out Leafs

Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Matt Murray returned from a concussion and made 38 saves for his first shutout of the season Thursday in a 3-0 victory over the host Toronto Maple Leafs.

Murray, 24, had been out since Oct. 8 after suffering at least the third concussion in his four-year career during practice.

He recorded his seventh career shutout Thursday, and did it against a Maple Leafs team that came in averaging an NHL-high 4.71 goals. Pittsburgh snapped Toronto's winning streak at five games.

"We played really solid all the way through and battled hard," Murray said. "That's a crazy, dynamic team over there and we were able to hold them off pretty well."

Murray has been plagued by injuries during his career, including a concussion last season. Murray, who has two Stanley Cups on his résumé, was limited to 49 games in each of the past two seasons.
