Will Marc-Andre Fleury sit for Penguins in Game 5, after Isles tie series? (Puck Daddy)

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma wouldn't tip his hand about whether or not he'll turn to Tomas Vokoun for Game 5 against the New York Islanders on Thursday, but listening to him speak after the game, the idea will be strongly considered. The Islanders' 6-4 win Tuesday night tied the series 2-2 and caused the idea of switching from Marc-Andre Fleury to Vokoun to go from media speculation to what appears to be a no-brainer of a decision. “Tomas Vokoun’s a guy that can step in and play," said Bylsma. "He’s had success and won hockey games against this team this year. We’re going to regroup and come back and come out for Game 5 with a new focus.”
