Tomas Vokoun, who starred for the Penguins last postseason, allowed four goals on 15 shots over two periods in a 4-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Monday at Consol Energy Center.

The Penguins are winless (0-1-1) in the NHL exhibition season.

Approximately 10,000 fans attended, even though the Pirates and Steelers each also played Monday.

Center Brandon Sutter scored for the Penguins, who next play at Chicago on Thursday.

Vokoun replaced Marc-Andre Fleury midway through Round 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs, but Fleury has been named the regular-season starter by coach Dan Bylsma.
