Despite speculation that there would be a possible goalie change for Game 2, Pens goaltender Tomas Vokoun will still get the start Monday.
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.
