After assembling the most talented roster in the NHL, one of the few questions left for the Pittsburgh Penguins before the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs was their goaltending.
For a second straight season, Marc-Andre Fleury struggled. This time, the Penguins had a viable Plan B, and Tomas Vokoun helped the team into the Eastern Conference Final. At that point, goaltending was far from the biggest question; the prolific Pittsburgh offense disappeared in a four-game sweep by the Boston Bruins.
The Penguins remain loaded with offensive firepower. During the offseason they strengthened their ability to defend. Fleury and Vokoun are back, so much of the critical focus will be on the person who needs to play better in the postseason to remain a franchise goaltender.
