Murray's save helps Penguins win Eastern finals rematch

(TSX / STATS) -- OTTAWA -- Matt Murray made 21 saves in total, but none bigger, better or more important than a highlight reel stop in the 13th minute of the first period at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday night.

The two-time Stanley Cup winning goalie dove from one side of his crease to the other, snuffing out Mike Hoffman's shot at the open net and propelling the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators in a rematch of last spring's Eastern Conference finalists.

"If they score on that maybe they get some momentum and it's a different outcome," Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said. "That was a huge save for us. We were able to settle in and generate some chances ourselves."
