Penguins will go with Murray over Fleury for Game 4

Goaltending hasn't really been the problem for Pittsburgh of late, Game 3 aside.

Johansen was injured during the Ducks' overtime victory in Game 4, which evened the series.

CROCKETT: Here's where I'm coming from when it comes to Fleury and Murray.

Chris Kunitz noted Fleury's "unbelievable goaltending performance" leading to the Penguins' lone win of the series, a 1-0 shutout, in Game 2. "I don't care", Boucher said, according to the Ottawa Sun.

"They were the better team tonight for two periods and they deserved the game", Boucher said. Both of these guys have helped this team win all year long and they're both high quality people and they're high quality goaltenders. We're keeping this column light, so keep that in mind when reading, and feel free to join in on the fun by leaving a comment. He did speak highly of the professionalism the tandem has shown all season long. “These guys have both helped us win games.

Banged up or not, with or without Fleury in the net, they simply have to start scoring.

"We know with all the talent, and all they world-class talent, they have on that team that this is something you can't take lightly". Our hope is that they respect our decision, and both of them have always been professional.

It's no secret that the Penguins have been decimated by injuries this season. This Eastern Conference final has become a slugfest, a war of attrition.

• NOTES: Fs Patric Hornqvist and Bryan Rust skated on Thursday but their status for Game 4 is uncertain.

Game 5 is Saturday night in Anaheim. Jake Guentzel leads Pittsburgh with nine goals, Evgeni Malkin has 14 assists and Phil Kessel has 48 shots on goal.

While the Penguins bucked their dismal scoring trends, the Senators' scoreless play on power plays continued. You certainly take that for what it's worth, and you move on because Game 4 is not going to be that. Rowney has been a reliable defensive player and getting a lot of penalty-killing time, while Wilson is getting a chance with the second power play unit. Lee says he's doesn't know what the NHL's conditions are "but whatever they ask - if it is acceptable for us - we will do our best". So I think we've got to be ready right from the drop of the puck, and we simply have to be better. "It's not easy. All I can really do is kind of jump in and try not to think about it". The Penguins have scored just one goal in each of their last five games versus Ottawa dating to the regular season.

Can the Penguins bounce back again?

At least two more games remain with three being a serious possibility.

"Our group's done a great job of rebounding after bad efforts or things like that throughout the year", forward Chris Kunitz said. He missed the start of the 2017 playoffs because of a lower-body injury, however, thrusting Fleury back into the spotlight.

Yet the Pittsburgh Penguins responded the way they've always responded since Mike Sullivan took over as head coach almost 18 months ago: like champions. "It's going to be a hard-fought series".

A logical question followed after he made his joke: Did he expect anything to change going into Sunday's Game 5? We have to go out there and earn everything.
