Matt Murray made 44 saves on 48 shots in the Penguins' 6-4 win over the Predators on Saturday night at PPG Paints Arena.

The win was Murrays' first in three weeks, and just his second win since Nov. 9. His last start was the Penguins' final game of the Canada road trip, where he made 10 saves on 14 shots in a loss to the Canucks on Dec. 21.
