The Pengins reactivated goaltender Matt Murray from injured reserve this morning so he will be available for tonight's game in Chicago. Murray only recently returned to pull practice after going on IR 3-and-a-half weeks ago.

"It feels good," Murray sais after Tuesday's practice, "You kind of take granted how much fun it is to be out there with the whole team rather than just yourself."  Murrays says he's ready to play as soon as Mike Sullivan gives him the word.

Murray may have to outplay Casey DeSmiith the reclaim his #1 status. Since Murray was placed on IR, DeSmith has gone 6-1-2.

The 24-year old Murray already has 2 Stanley Cups to his credit but has struggled this season, with a record of 4-5-1, a 4.08 Goals Against Average and a Save Percentage of just .877, among the worst marks in the NHL.  Murray last played aginst Ottawa November 17th and was pulled after allowing 3 goals on 10 shots in what turned into a 6-4 loss.

To make room for Murray, Tristan Jarry was returned to Wilkes-Barre-Scranton
