Matt Murray has by no means been bad this season, but lately he has had some of his worst games. Fans are rightfully starting to get worried.

Murray Underperforming



Matt Murray has now let in at least four goals in his last five games. This is unacceptable as the Leafs need every possible win to secure their home advantage over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This recent streak is rightfully starting to spark concern over his spot in their tandem. With Murray pinned as the playoff starter since day 1 of the season, it's starting to feel like Samsonov has the edge.



Murray commented on his recent performances, but words don't mean anything if the performances can't back it up.

«I've been feeling better and better every gameThat's all I can do right now, just keep improving»


Murray's .840 save percentage since being activated off LTIR just isn't enough to trust him in the playoffs.

Luckily, Samsonov has been hot, and he's definitely starting to look like the guy in the playoffs.
