Maple Leafs give update on Matt Murray's condition

What are the prospects of a return to action?



The Toronto Maple Leafs are firmly in control of their Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the Tampa Bay Lightning, having shocked them in both Games 3 and 4 at Amalie Arena with comeback overtime victories; the latter of which featured a three-goal comeback in the third period. 

Goaltender Ilya Samsonov has rebounded from a poor Game 1 outing, racking up three straight victories and outplaying former Conn Smythe Trophy winner Andrei Vasilevskiy. And while Joseph Woll has been serving as the backup for far in the postseason, the Leafs are working on getting veteran Matt Murray back into playing shape.

Murray, who hasn't played since suffering a concussion earlier this month after being accidentally taken down by Red Wings forward Lucas Raymond in a late regular season game, was on the ice at Toronto's training facility working with the development staff: 

"He is making progress to the point where he is on the ice," explained head coach Sheldon Keefe. "He has been working mostly in recovery mode on his own. Now, he is starting to take shots from players in more game-like situations. It is steady progress there."

During the regular season, Murray posted a record of 14-8-2 record with a 3.01 goals against average and .903 save percentage.
