The Pittsburgh Penguins needed to step up in a big way in Game 5 at home on Thursday night and they answered the call be shutting out the New York Islanders by a score of 4-0. Pittsburgh made a switch in goal and gave the start to veteran goalie Tomas Vokoun after Marc-Andre Fleury gave up 14 goals in the three games prior.
Vokoun answered the bell and gave the Penguins exactly the performance they needed as they came just one win away from advancing.
New York will need to earn the win in front of their home crowd if they hope to keep their Stanley Cup dreams alive or else they will face major disappointment after testing the No. 1 seed early and often.
