Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said backup goaltender Brent Johnson will start Friday night at home against the New York Islanders, but he would not commit to going back to No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury for Saturday's game at Philadelphia.

The Penguins are playing three games in four nights, so it is not unusual for Johnson to get a start, but he has fared better in his one game, a 3-1 win Monday at New Jersey with 31 saves, than Fleury has in the Penguins' other games.

Fleury is 0-3 with a 3.41 goals-against average and an .853 save percentage.
