Penguins' Matt Murray starting in goal against the Blues

Pittsburgh Penguins netminder Matt Murray will start Wednesday's season-opener against the St. Louis Blues.

What It Means:

Murray solidified himself as the Penguins' number-one goalie in the 2016-17 season, starting 47 games while posting a 2.41 goals against average and finishing 8th among qualifying goalies with a .923 save percentage. Pittsburgh brought in Antti Niemi in the off-season, but he will serve as Murray's backup, likely spelling him only when Murray needs rest days.

Murray is numberFire's top-projected fantasy goalie on Wednesday. We project him for 29.1 saves, 2.1 goals against, a 67.0% chance of scoring a win and 10.0% chance of scoring a shutout -- good for 21.9 fantasy points while he's priced at $9,100 on FanDuel.
