Vokoun to start for Pens versus Sens


Tomas Vokoun will start in goal for the Penguins tonight in Ottawa.

Pittsburgh’s number-one goalie, Marc-Andre Fleury, is staying home, as his wife is expecting the couple’s first child.

Recent college signing Eric Hartzell (Quinnipiac) will be Pittsburgh’s backup.

Vokoun, 36, is 12-4-0 with a .915 save percentage. After an inconsistent start to the season, the veteran has been very good. His last outing was Saturday in Boston, where he was named first star for stopping 38 of 40 Bruins shots in a 3-2 victory.
