PITTSBURGH -- Tomas Vokoun of the Pittsburgh Penguins has Marc-Andre Fleury in his corner heading into a series-defining Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Thursday against the New York Islanders at Consol Energy Center (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN).
"I'm sure he will be great tonight," Fleury said.
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma named Vokoun the Game 5 starter Wednesday. He felt it was the necessary move after Fleury struggled in the three games following a series-opening shutout.
