Pittsburgh's Zatkoff To Make NHL Debut Vs Florida
Jeff Zatkoff may only be in the NHL because of Tomas Vokouns health issues, but Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby doesn't think the Penguins need to play in an overly protective fashion when the 26-year-old goalie makes his debut tonight in Florida versus the Panthers.
Zatkoff has put up good numbers in the AHL. He had a .920 save percentage last season in 49 appearances for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
While tonights start against Florida may seem like a relatively easy one, its worth noting that this is the home-opener for a Panthers team thats actually played pretty well in two of its first four games.
