Maple Leafs' Matt Murray: Serving as third goalie
Murray (concussion) was Toronto's third goalie Sunday against Florida, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Murray hasn't appeared in a game since April 2 after suffering a concussion. Whether or not he's 100 percent healthy remains to be seen, but he was available as the third goalie Sunday after Ilya Samsonov (undisclosed) left the game.

Maple Leafs' Matt Murray: Labeled day-to-day
According to coach Sheldon Keefe, Murray is considered day-to-day with a head injury and "other stuff," TSN's Chris Johnston reports.
Murray exited Sunday's loss to the Red Wings in the first period after slamming the back of his head on the ice when Detroit's Lucas Raymond inadvertently collided with him in the crease. Although Murray's been deemed day-to-day, recoveries from head injuries are notoriously hard to predict, so at this point there's no telling when the 28-year-old goaltender may be be ready to return to game action. Joseph Woll should take over as Toronto's No. 2 netminder until Murray is cleared to return.... See More ... See Less
