Rookie goalie Matt Murray will start for the Pittsburgh Penguins against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

Murray made 17 saves in the 3-1 loss in Game 1 on Friday.

"He has a maturity level beyond his years and responds to adversity really well," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said Sunday.

Murray, 21, is 7-3 with a 2.15 goals-against average and .929 save percentage in 10 games this postseason. He has allowed three goals in each of his past three games (1-2).

Marc-Andre Fleury, who hasn't played since sustaining his second concussion of the season on March 31, remains the backup.
