Matt Murray will get the start in Tampa Bay on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports. Murray has been everything the Maple Leafs could have asked for this season, as he is 5-1-1 with a 2.43 GAA and a .927 save percentage. He was outstanding Monday in Detroit, stopping 42 shots in a 4-2 win. Murray will face the Lightning, who have struggled at times this season, but have turned their game around of late, going 7-3-0 in their last 10 contests.

Tampa Bay Lightning DFS SPIN

Andrei Vasilevskiy made 21 saves in a 4-1 win over the Flyers on Thursday. He also nabbed an assist. The helper came on a wonky goal. Vasilevskiy fed Erik Cernak who feathered it to partner Ian Cole. Cole wired a shot from center ice that bounced off the end boards and rolled between Carter Hart's skates. Vasilevskiy's overall numbers this season have been middling, but since November 13, he has upped his game. He's 5-2-0 in his last seven starts with a .916 save percentage and he's limited his opponents to two or fewer goals in five of those starts.
