Vokoun, Panthers visit Maple Leafs

Florida (17-16-6) at Toronto (16-17-6), 7:30 pm EST

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Tomas Vokoun is losing his hold on the

Florida Panthers' starting goaltender spot.

Vokoun will try to regain his No. 1 status when the Panthers

square off against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old Vokoun, who has a 3-1-2 career record against

the Maple Leafs, has been relinquishing a lot of starts to Chris

Anderson this season.

The Czech is 8-12-1 with a 2.83 goals-against average and .916

save percentage on the campaign, while Anderson has posted a

9-4-5 record with a 2.35 GAA and .933 save percentage.

Since posting back-to-back shutouts on December 21 and 23,

Vokoun has been pulled in two of his last three starts - losing

all three contests.

The Maple Leafs are seeking their third win in four games after

defeating the Ottawa Senators, 3-1, on Saturday.

Jason Blake scored a goal and setup another in that one for

Toronto, which has won seven of its previous 12 contests.
