The SportsXchange

Tomas Vokoun will be back in goal as the starter for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Bruins.

Vokoun gave up three goals on 12 shots in the Penguins' 6-1 loss to the Bruins on Monday night and was pulled. His replacement, Marc-Andre Fleury, also allowed three goals.

Vokoun has a 6-3 record with a 2.26 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage in the playoffs. Fleury is 2-2 with a .883 save percentage. Fleury's last postseason start came in Game 4 of a first-round series against the New York Islanders.

"We look at his entire body of work, not one instance or one shot last night that would sway what goes into how he performed or how he's going to perform in his next game,: Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. "He's certainly won a lot of hockey games, had a lot of success in that net for us."
