Who Starts In Goal For The Penguins?

from Tim Baines of the Ottawa Sun,

It’s got to be a head-scratching decision for Pittsburgh Penguins management types.

Do they go with wildly inconsistent Marc-Andre Fleury or older, steadier Tomas Vokoun in the opening game of their Round 2 playoff matchup with the Senators Tuesday night?

Do they dare ride with Fleury, the 28-year-old who was regarded highly enough to be named to Canada’s 2010 Olympic team, now the guy who may be playing himself out of consideration for next year’s Olympics?

A 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders in Game 4 was the breaking point. Fleury stink, stank, stunk. Vokoun won the next two games as the Penguins dispatched the tenacious Islanders.

While there’s no goaltending controversy in Ottawa, it’s all the rage in Pittsburgh.

It’s got to be Vokoun, right? I can’t see how they can go back to Fleury.
