Description: Pittsburgh netminder Tomas Vokoun (blood clot) has been medically cleared to play and just needs to get in shape, according to Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Insight: The veteran missed the entire season to this point after he had a blood clot in his pelvis back in September. Vokoun was 13-4-0 with a 2.45 GAA and .919 SV% last season as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup.

Description: Pittsburgh netminder Tomas Vokoun (blood clot) will skate for the first time on Wednesday, according to Penguins.nhl.com.
Insight: He also missed a large portion of the 2006-07 season while dealing with a blood clot. He's not taking shots yet, but this is a big step in the right direction. Vokoun was 13-4-0 with a 2.45 GAA and .919 SV%.
 
9/22/2013 11:23:00 AM
Description: Penguins backup goalie Tomas Vokoun is out indefinitely after having a blood clot removed from his pelvis on Saturday.
Insight: Vokoun took over as Pittsburgh's starter during the playoffs after Marc-Andre Fleury struggled again. The veteran dealt with similar pelvic issues in April 2006, missed the final few weeks of the season and wasn't healthy again until 4-5 months later. Jeff Zatkoff, who went 26-20 with a 1.93 GAA and a .920 SV% in the AHL last year, will serve as Fleury's backup to start the season.
 
6/5/2013 8:10:00 PM
Description: Tomas Vokoun is back in net for Wednesday's Game 3.
Insight: The Pittsburgh netminder was a disaster in Monday night's Game 2 and had to be relieved by Marc-Andre Fleury late in the first period. With the Penguins trailing the Bruins two games to none, we're guessing Vokoun will have a very short leash in Game 3.
 
6/3/2013 9:43:00 PM
Description: Tomas Vokoun's night was a short one. The Pens goalie was pulled Monday night after giving up three quick goals.
Insight: Marc-Andre Fleury replaced Vokoun late in the first period. So far Pittsburgh has been outscored 9-1 in the first two games of the Conference Finals.

5/20/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Penguins goaltender Tomas Vokoun stopped 46 of 48 shots in a double overtime loss to Ottawa.
Insight: It was Vokoun's first loss after four playoff wins, but it will be interesting to see if the team goes back to Marc-Andre Fleury. Fleury has struggled in the playoffs, going 2-2 with a 3.40 GAA and .891 save percentage, but does have 45 playoff wins on his resume and a Stanley Cup title.

Insight: Vokoun gave up six goals to Philadelphia in his last start and has allowed 16 in four starts since shutting out the Rangers on Jan. 31. Fleury, meanwhile, has been excellent and should be considered the clear-cut No. 1 goaltender.
