A tough first period for the Penguins almost got even more difficult when Matt Murray took a hit to the head from teammate Brian Dumoulin.

Dumoulin clipped his goalie behind the Penguins’ net with just seconds remaining in the opening frame. Murray stayed down for a little while, but he was able to skate off the ice on his own.  The 21-year-old did come out for the start of the second period.

Murray missed the first two games of Pittsburgh’s first round series against the Rangers because of a head injury.

The Lightning lead 2-0 in the second period.
