BOSTON (CBS) –  The mystery of who will start in net for the Penguins in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals has been solved.

Tomas Vokoun was the first goalie off the ice at Wednesday’s morning skate, and the team announced he will start between the pipes against the Boston Bruins shortly after.

Vokoun, who replaced a struggling Marc-Andre Fleury in the first round against the New York Islanders, has a .929 save percentage and 2.2 goals against average over nine games this postseason.

Vokoun gave up three goals on 12 shots in the first period of Game 2, and was replaced by Fleury — who gave up three goals of his own. Against the Bruins, Vokoun has a .857 save percentage, allowing six goals off 42 shots.
