Marc-Andre Fleury out, Tomas Vokoun in for Penguins in Game 5 (Puck Daddy)

As Pittsburgh Penguins Coach Dan Bylsma said in announcing Tomas Vokoun as the starter for Game 5 on Thursday night, they acquired him to play in situations like this. There are none bigger than when a No. 1 seed is in trouble and its No. 1 goalie is a significant reason for that trouble. Marc-Andre Fleury has been good at times, shaky at others and downright bad in the Penguins’ Game 4 loss to the New York Islanders, knotting the series at 2-2. He’s given up 40 goals in his last 10 playoff games. Loyalty be damned, Bylsma had to make this change.
