Vokoun continued his strong play in the playoffs in Game 3 when he turned aside 46 of the 48 shots that were directed at him. He gave up a backhand goal to Colin Greening at 7:39 into the second overtime frame that gave the Sens the victory. In five starts Vokoun has posted the playoff's best GAA (1.61) and SV% (.949).
No surprise here, but Tomas Vokoun confirms he's starting Game 2 tonight.
Vokoun continued his strong post-season with a 35 save performance in Game 1. The only goal he allowed was a jam play early in the first period, but he bounced back and shut the door on the Senators. Vokoun has posted a 1.28 GAA and .962 SV% in three starts.
After Marc-Andre Fleury struggled early in the Penguins first round series with the Islanders, Tomas Vokoun came in a shut the door for Pittsburgh. He posted a 1.41 GAA and .957 SV% in Game's 5 and 6. After two performances like he had there is no surprise that Coach Bylsma will go with him in Game 1 vs. the Senators.
Vokoun stopped all 31 shots that the Islanders threw his way in a 4-0 shutout win on Thursday. He is starting because Marc-Andre Fleury (who struggled mightily last year) struggled in the first four games. He will be back in goal for Game 6 where the Penguins will look to close out the series.
Marc-Andre Fleury has struggled big time in the first four games of the series posting a 3.40 GAA and .891 SV%. Vokoun will get the start in Game 5. He last started a playoff game in 2006-07 as a member of the Nashville Predators.
Vokoun allowed just two goals on 40 shots in a winning on Saturday. He will get his second straight start tonight when the Penguins take on the Senators. He is 8-1-0 on the road this season versus 4-3-0 at home, so he could make for a good spot start tonight. However the Sens are a team desperate for a win, so don't expect them to just roll over.
Vokoun allowed four goals on 13 shots in his last start. He will make his first start since April 2nd when the Penguins take on the Lightning. Vokoun is 6-1-0 on the road this season, he should make for a solid start.
