05:58 AM ET 06.10 | There has been a lot of uncertainty about what will happen this offseason with the Pittsburgh Penguins, but answers are slowly starting to roll in. While head coach Dan Bylsma may end up being fired for his part in the Pens series sweep against the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Finals, he's not the first coaching domino to fall on the team. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, goalie coach Gilles Meloche is expected to resign after the Pens netminding went down the tubes against the Bruins. It was obvious that someone needed to be held accountable for the utter destruction of the Pens netminders in their series against the Bruins, and while poor offensive output from PIttsburgh skaters is a major factor in the series sweep, the back breaking 6-1 loss in Game 2 is something still fresh in everyone's mind in Pittsburgh.

Cause the complete lack of D effort in games 1 and 2 was all the goalies faults.

But I guess if Dan isnt going down someone else will have to fall on their sword to cover for the players' poor efforts on D and O!!!!!!!!!!

I dont know if it went down the tubes against Boston. I think you can go back to last years debacle against the Flyers and then this years series against the Isles.

I guess Vokoun needs his GAA to be better than the 2.01 and his Save% a lot higher than the 933 he put up this post-season.

But Coach Dan says MAF and his 3.5 plus GAA is their number one goalie...

Very honorable Meloche falls on sword . Wonder if White Skates will have their avatar at half mast

When you score 2 goals in 4 games its obviously the fault of the goalie coach.
