It is Murray’s second known concussion in eight months and third of this career.

The latest one apparently occurred during the first period of Saturday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens when there was a collision between Montreal forward Brendan Gallagher and Murray.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan is expected to discuss Murray’s status after practice.

The 24-year-old Murray has allowed 11 goals in two games this season.

The two-time Stanley Cup winning goalie has a 69-29-8 record and 2.64 goals-against average in 113 regular-season appearances (107 starts).
