Description: Pittsburgh backup goalie Jeff Zatkoff will start Thursday against the New York Islanders on Thursday.
Insight: Zatkoff is 1-1 against the Islanders this season yielding seven goals so you may want to skip him tonight. He's a respectable 7-2-1 with a 2.67 GAA and .906 SV%.
 
12/19/2013 6:09:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh backup goalie Jeff Zatkoff has been confirmed as the starter for Thursday's game against Minnesota.
Insight: Zatkoff gave up 10 goals in his first two starts but he's given up just seven in his last five. Marc-Andre Fleury should be back in net Saturday against Calgary.
 
11/30/2013 6:06:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh backup goalie Jeff Zatkoff will man the net Saturday at Florida.
Insight: Marc-Andre Fleury just picked up a shutout Friday, so nothing Zatkoff does Saturday will earn him more starts. He's gone 3-2-0 with a 3.18 GAA and an .877 SV% in five games this season.
 
11/22/2013 5:43:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh backup goalie Jeff Zatkoff will start Friday against the Islanders.
Insight: Zatkoff hasn't played since shutting out the Blue Jackets on Nov. 2.
 
11/2/2013 9:49:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh goalie Jeff Zatkoff earned his first career shutout Saturday against Columbus.
Insight: It was only his third start of the year. The Blue Jackets managed just 19 shots against the 26-year-old.
 
10/25/2013 5:09:00 PM
Description: Penguins backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff will start Friday against the Islanders.
Insight: Zatkoff has played just one game this season and gave up six goals on 30 shots to the Florida Panthers. The 26-year-old will need a good start Friday to prevent the Penguins from looking at other backup options.
 
10/11/2013 10:18:00 PM
Description: Penguins backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff gave up six goals on 30 shots in his NHL debut Friday at Florida.
Insight: Ouch. That's a poor first showing for a player the Penguins need to contribute behind Marc-Andre Fleury in the wake of Tomas Vokoun's blood clot issues that we keep him out for 3-6 months. Zatkoff had a 1.93 GAA and .920 save percentage in 49 AHL contests in 2012-13.
 
10/11/2013 2:47:00 PM
Description: Penguins backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff will make his first NHL start Friday against Florida.
Insight: Zatkoff had a 1.93 GAA and .920 save percentage in 49 AHL contests in 2012-13. If he's anything close to that, he'll be a solid backup to Marc-Andre Fleury. Veteran backup Tomas Vokoun is out long-term due to a blood clot.
