08:55 AM ET 05.28 | Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was pulled for Game 5 of the team's first-round series in favor of Tomas Vokoun, who has been playing at a high level, but Fleury has stayed focused and continued to work hard during the team's practices. During Monday's skate session, Fleury looked especially sharp and Penguins head coach Dan Byslma took notice of how his former starter has been performing. Vokoun is expected to be the team's starter for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Bruins, but Fleury is staying sharp and he will be ready to get the call if Vokoun struggles.

I expected this thread. And, I'm sure Fleury will get another start if the series goes a while and Vokoun needs a break. Unless he is superb in his next start(s) I think MAF goes during the off-season. Vokoun is a great back-up but not a starter for next year..............so, who is next?

Problem is always the same. Goes where and is replaced by whom?

Exactly. They don't have anyone playing in Wilkes-Barre who could step up and take his place. Anyone who could replace him would probably cost more money than he is making. (Think Bryz) Sooooooooo he'll stick around.

Flower was great in '08 and '09 so it's in his head which is easier to fix than talent. He'll be fine and Pens will be fine as well.

hope the B's net 3 in the 1st game just to give them something to think about

If the coach makes his decision based on what happens in practice, the Pens are serious doo-doo. Anybody can look good in practice.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
