You don't have to be a math major to know that the Penguins-Islanders series is now a best of three.
Dan Bylsma is wisely starting Tomas Vokoun in goal for Game Five. The Penguins have allowed too many goals, and Marc-Andre Fleury is clearly frustrated by his second straight sub-par postseason. This isn't a time to soothe egos. The Penguins need to win.
But goaltending isn't the only problem. Maybe the switch in net will help the team focus better and keep that concentration for 60 minutes.
All is not lost. The Penguins are still capable of winning this series. But they're going to have to work for it, maybe harder than they thought.
