Murray picks up 1st NHL Shutout, Pens clinch playoff berth

Matthew Murray gets his first NHL shutout, and the Pittsburgh Penguins clinch a berth in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 10th straight season.

Murray, who is a 21-year-old rookie, will definitely see more starts; as the Pens announced before the game that Marc-Andre Fleury has been diagnosed with a concussion and there is no timetable for his return.

Pittsburgh (45-25-8) has won five in a row, and is 11-1 in the past 12. The Pens moved three points ahead of the New York Rangers for second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Oskar Sundqvist, Patric Hornqvist, Matt Cullen, Phil Kessel and Kuhnhackl all scored for the Penguins.

Oskar Sundqvist scored his first NHL Goal.

Berube made 28 saves.

New York was without defenseman Travis Hamonic, who will miss the rest of the regular season with a lower-body injury. Marek Zidlicky replaced him in the lineup.
