Penguins' Vokoun out of the hospital

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tomas Vokoun is out of the hospital and resting at home, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Wednesday.

Vokoun had been hospitalized since Saturday when he had a procedure performed to dissolve a blood clot in his pelvis.

There is no timetable for him to return to the team.

Vokoun went 13-4-0 with a 2.45 goals-against average in 20 regular season games for the Penguins last season, and went 6-5 with a 2.01 GAA in 11 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He replaced Marc-Andre Fleury as starter for Game 5 of the team's first-round series against the New York Islanders, and backstopped the Penguins to the Eastern Conference Final.

Quote of the Day

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
