Penguins goalie Matt Murray placed on injured reserve

Posted: Updated:

CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Tuesday that Murray is "week to week" after the 23-year-old left Monday night's 5-4 overtime win over Philadelphia in the second period following a collision with Flyers forward Jakub Voracek.

Murray was on the ice for several minutes before making his way to the bench and limping down the runway to the locker room while favoring his right leg. The team placed Murray on injured reserve on Tuesday, meaning he will be out at least seven days.

Tristan Jarry came in and stopped 8 of 10 shots as the Penguins rallied from a 3-1 deficit.

Jarry, a rookie, is expected to start in Murray's place when the Penguins begin a home-and-home series with Buffalo on Friday.
