The Pittsburgh Penguins will be without their star goaltender for the near future. Matt Murray was injured during the second period of Monday’s 5-4 overtime win against the Philadelphia Flyers. Murray suffered the injury when Jakub Voracek crashed into him on a breakaway. The resulting collision threw Murray into the post at an awkward angle. Murray was helped to the bench and appeared to be favoring his right leg. Today, the Penguins announced Murray will be out for an unspecified amount of time, but he’s considered week-to-week. To replace Murray, the Penguins recalled Casey DeSmith from their AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. DeSmith made his NHL debut on Oct. 29 against the Winnipeg Jets. He allowed three goals on 15 shots after coming on in relief of Murray. The Penguins lost the game 7-1.
