NHL Playoffs 2013, Penguins vs. Islanders Game 5: Start Time, Live Stream, TV Schedule And More

The Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders have been involved in one of the most exciting series of the NHL Playoffs so far with there being no shortage on goals. Unfortunately for the Penguins, the goals hitting the back of their net have been weak, so they made the call to make a change between the pipes.

Tomas Vokoun will enter the net for the Pens in Game 5 with hopes of giving the team a boost.
