Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings at PPG Paints Arena most likely will give Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray an opportunity for something of a fresh start.Murray Mark Scheifele Jersey , who helped the Penguins win the Stanley Cup in 2016 and 2017, not played as well since, at least in part because of injuries. He is expected to start for Pittsburgh (14-11-6) after recovering from a lower-body injury.Murray was put on injured reserve on Thanksgiving after putting up the worst numbers of his career to that point in the season: 4-5-1, an .877 goals-against average and a 4.08 goals-against average.Article continues below ...The time off to heal could help him with a reset.“There’s always benefits,” Murray said of being out. “You’ve got to take the positives out of every situation and run with it. It’s not about dwelling on the fact that you’re not in the lineup or you’re not healthy but using your time to get better in any way that you can.”Murray came off IR Wednesday, but the Penguins opted to have him back up Casey DeSmith that night in a 6-3 loss at Chicago and again Friday in a 5-3 win against Boston, when DeSmith made a career-high 48 saves.“We’re trying to put Matt in the best possible position to be successful,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said of waiting until at least Saturday to start Murray.“He’s had one team practice and a morning skate (since getting full medical clearance).“The reality is, we’re playing back-to-backs, so they’re both going to get games. … When you look at the schedule, both in the short-term playing back-to-back Mathieu Perreault Jersey , but also in the bigger picture where we play six games in nine nights, both of these guys are going to get playing time.”The Kings (11-20-2) were already in Pittsburgh Friday and got to relax while the Penguins played.Not that their season has been very relaxing.The Kings sit last in the NHL. They lost Thursday at Columbus 4-1 and are 0-2-1 going into final game of a road trip.“We have to be a lot better if we want to win games in this league,” Kings center Jeff Carter said. “That’s the bottom line here. We need to have more from everybody, myself included.”There is a lot of statistical evidence to show that Los Angeles has earned its spot on the cellar.A glaring one is the 1-for-17 lull on the power play over the past eight games, along with giving up six opponent power-play goals in that span.“It’s been a common theme this year,” Carter said. “We’ve lost the special teams battles way too much this year, and it’s a huge, huge part of where we’re at.”Among the other defining numbers, the Kings are 1-13-1 when they trail after the first period, 0-16-0 when they trail entering the third period.The Kings will be without defenseman Dion Phaneuf for the second straight game. He has returned to Los Angeles because of an upper-body injury.“He will be (out of the lineup) a little bit of time,” interim coach Willie Desjardins said.Pittsburgh could be without its top defenseman Patrik Berglund Jersey Womens , Kris Letang, who left Friday’s game late in the third period with an apparent left leg injury after colliding with Boston’s Joakim Nordstrom. There was no postgame update on his status. NEW YORK — The New York Rangers are shaking things up Wednesday in hopes of snapping a lengthy losing streak against the New York Islanders. If the words spoken Sunday afternoon by coach Barry Trotz were any indication, the Islanders will be shuffling the deck as well.Backup goalie Alexander Georgiev will make a rare start for the Rangers on Wednesday night when they host the Islanders in a battle of longtime rivals at Madison Square Garden.Both teams are coming off a game against the visiting Dallas Stars. The Rangers continued their recent hot play Monday with a 2-1 win over the Stars, who began a five-game road trip Sunday by routing the Islanders 6-2.Article continues below ...The Rangers (11-8-2) have won eight of their last 10 games (8-1-1). The only game in that span in which they didn’t collect a point? Last Thursday, when the host Islanders posted a 7-5 win at Barclays Center.The Islanders’ win was their franchise-record eighth straight against the Rangers. Hall of Fame-bound goalie Henrik Lundqvist has started six of those games, including last Thursday when he was pulled after allowing five goals in the first two periods. Lundqvist was spared the loss, which was handed to Georgiev, because the Islanders’ sixth goal ended up being the game-winner.If all goes according to plan for the Rangers, Lundqvist will be watching a bunch of hungry teammates Wednesday night.“We have a little bit of a chip on our shoulder because of how it’s gone as of late,” defenseman Brendan Smith told reporters after practice Tuesday.The Islanders (10-7-2) may feel the same way after Trotz’s blistering assessment of Sunday’s loss — the most lopsided defeat for the Islanders since Trotz became head coach before this season. Goalie Thomas Greiss was pulled after allowing the first three of the Stars’ four goals in the second period, but Trotz made it clear afterward he wasn’t blaming Greiss http://www.officialhockeyjetsshop.com/authentic-adidas-nikolaj-ehlers-jersey , who allowed two goals or fewer in five of his first nine starts this season.“I heard Thomas take the blame for a couple goals — no, they’re not hiding behind the goalie tonight, sorry,” Trotz said. “Thomas has played very well for us over the course (of the season) and he’s covered up a lot of our mistakes. So I’m putting this on the team. We need more from some of our top guys. Plain and simple, (he’s) done protecting them.”The Islanders didn’t practice Tuesday, so it will likely take until faceoff Wednesday to determine who he may have been targeting. One possibility is struggling defenseman Nick Leddy, who was on the ice for four Stars goals Sunday and is a minus-45 since the start of last season.Georgiev hasn’t played since he made his first career appearance against the Islanders and stopped five of six shots in the third period. He last started Nov. 10 when he picked up the win after making 34 saves in the Rangers’ 5-4 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.Robin Lehner, who made 11 saves in relief of Greiss on Sunday, is likely to draw the start for the Islanders. Lehner made his most recent start Nov. 10, when he took the loss after making 27 saves as the Islanders fell to the Florida Panthers 4-2. He is 2-4-2 in eight career games against the Rangers.
