Tomas Vokoun stopped 31 shots in his first playoff start in six years and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New York Islanders 4-0 on Thursday night in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series.
Mark Streit is the glue to the Islanders defense. An underrated playmaker, he missed all of the 2010-11 campaign due to a freak shoulder injury in training camp but returned last year to post seven goals and 40 assists, numbers that could even be better this season. The Isles also may be able to pair him with Lubomir Visnovsky which should only help Streit as defenses can no longer key on him at the point on the power play. Streit is one of the league's most consistent offensive defensemen, averaging 53.5 points his last four seasons while topping out at 62 in 2007-08 with Montreal. He has 96 points the last two years with the Islanders. (Updated 8/14/12)
