With the Philadelphia Flyers' first goal of the series in Game 2, the Pittsburgh Penguins netminder saw his playoff shutout streak snapped at 225:49 - or nearly the equivalent of four full games.

Shayne Gostisbehere fired a power-play goal past Murray with just 37 seconds left in the first period Friday, marking the first time the 23-year-old has given up a playoff goal since Viktor Arvidsson of the Nashville Predators scored in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final last season.

Murray's streak still stands as the best in franchise history, but with a shutout in Game 2, he could have set a record for the most consecutive playoff shutouts in NHL history.
