Insider Only Fleury benched, Tomas Vokoun named starting goaltender for Game 5


Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma won’t keep anyone guessing on who his starting goaltender will be for Game 5. Bylsma moments ago announced that Tomas Vokoun will start in goal for Game 5.
“We brought Tomas Vokoun in to play big games for us,” Bylsma said. “Tomas is capable of being a great goalie for us.”

“He’s been very good vs the Islanders,” Bylsma said of Vokoun.
