    WASHINGTON -- Stanley Cup-winning goalie?Matt Murray insists hes OK after taking an accidental hit to the head from Pittsburgh Penguins teammate Evgeni Malkin in a 7-1 loss to the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.Murray left the game late in the first period when Malkin went to shove Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner and hit Murray, whose mask came off. Murray went down to the ice in pain, talked to an athletic trainer and skated off.Murray did not return but said he went through the NHLs concussion protocol and was medically cleared.Im fine, Murray said. I had to go through the protocol, which I think is a little bit unnecessary. I think I was fine. They took me off for the hit that knocked my helmet off. After that, it was just coachs decision to keep me out.Marc-Andre Fleury came in cold to replace Murray with 23.7 seconds left in the first, and allowed a goal to T.J. Oshie with 7.9 second remaining as Pittsburgh fell behind 3-0. With Murray watching from the bench wearing a baseball cap, Fleury allowed five goals on 25 shots.Coach Mike Sullivan said of his decision not to send Murray back out there: I thought it made sense for a lot of reasons.Murray, who missed the start of the playoffs last spring because of a concussion and the start of this regular season with a broken hand from the World Cup of Hockey, entered the game 4-0-0 with a 1.25 goals-against average and .961 save percentage.

The best week on the football calendar is finally upon us and, here at ESPN, weve taken a forensic look at the Sydney and Western Bulldogs teams, and their form this season, to bring you the Grand Final Power Rankings.Perhaps surprisingly, its the underdogs from Melbournes west who edge the minor premiers in our rankings.While the Swans hold the advantage over the Dogs in the on-field categories -- boasting a superior backline, deeper and more experienced midfield and more potent forward line -- its the Bulldogs who have the intangibles on their side.The Sons of the West are not only undefeated at the MCG this year, they have also beaten the Swans in both matches from the last two years (both up in Sydney). And, of course, they will have at their backs a surge of support from just about every neutral footy fan in the country.So who wins the day? Does the superior side on paper get it done, or does the wave of momentum and perhaps a slight mental edge work in favour of the Dogs? Weve scored iit 85-84 the Bulldogs way.ddddddddddddLegend:Defence: The higher the number, the better the teams defence.Attack:?The higher the number, the better the teams attack.Midfield:?The higher the number, the better the teams midfield.Ruck:?The higher the number, the better the teams ruck.X-Factor: The number and quality of genuine match-winning players.Recent form:?The higher the number, the better the team has performed in the last three weeks.Vs. each other: The higher the number, the better the team has performed against their opposition from their last three matches.Vs. top 8: The higher the number, the better the team has performed against other top eight sides in season 2016.At the MCG:?The higher the number, the better the team has performed at the MCG this year.Finals experience: The higher the number, the more experienced a team is in a finals matches played.
