05/21/2013 07:24 Penguins' Vokoun Stops 46 In Loss
Vokoun made 46 saves on 48 shots, but he still took the Game 3 loss in double overtime against the Senators on Sunday.Vokoun was less than a minute away from a shutout, but ended up on the losing end. However, his numbers since taking over for Marc-Andre Fleury remain strong.
Tomas Vokoun, who inked a two-year deal with Pittsburgh, has not been assigned as a set backup for starter Marc-Andre Fleury. He's expected to see more ice time than a typical Pittsburgh backup goalie, but just how much depends, in large part, on how well Fleury plays in front of him. For the majority of his 14 NHL seasons, Vokoun has played on mediocre teams in Nashville and Florida. As a result, he's had fairly poor goals-against averages with strong save percentage marks, finishing with a sub 2.40 GAA only once. His career .917 save percentage is better than six of eight seasons by Fleury, however. How Vokoun does in 2012-13 is a great variable. If he was younger than 36 and had less mileage on him, then it would be easier to see the upside he offers. Still, 20 wins or so seems reasonable for Vokoun while playing in front of a strong Penguins squad. (Updated 8/14/12)
