Report: Pens Tomas Vokoun To Start In Game 2


 

Despite speculation that there would be a possible goalie change for Game 2, Pens goaltender Tomas Vokoun will still reportedly get the start Monday – according to Sam Kasan of the Pens’ website.

Rumors began to swirl at the conclusion of Game 1, but head coach Dan Bylsma isn’t losing faith – and so the 36-year-old netminder will now give all he has in Game 2.

In eight games this postseason, Vokoun has posted a record of 6-2-1 and has a 1.98 goals against average with a .937 save percentage.

He continues to get the nod over original starting goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who allowed 14 goals over four contests against the New York Islanders in round one.

But should Vokoun start to slip – expect the “Flower” to be planted in net for Game 3.

Game 2 is tonight in Pittsburgh at 8 p.m.
