If you subscribe to the notion that when it rains it pours, then Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun was drenched for about a three-second span on Sunday afternoon against the Washington Capitals. 
If you subscribe to the notion that when it rains it pours, then Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun was drenched for about a three-second span on Super Bowl Sunday afternoon against the Washington Capitals. 

At 4:03 of the second period against his former teammates, Vokoun left the net to play what appeared to be a dump-in along the sideboards by Capitals defenceman John Carlson. 

Not so fast. 

The puck took an odd bounce off the stanchion and angled towards the net as Vokoun tried to reposition himself from behind the goal. Adding insult to injury, the 36-year-old slipped and fell as he attempted to adjust while he watched the little black rubber object cross the goal-line and give the Capitals some hope.

But in the end it was Vokoun and his Penguins colleagues who got the last laugh, coming up with a 6-3 victory
