Unable to fly due to an ear infection, Vokoun was joined by strength and conditioning coach Andy O’Brien and head athletic trainer Dave Zenobi while driving the approximate 640 miles between Washington, D.C., and Atlanta.
Due to a winter storm dumping snow along the east cost, the trip, which began Sunday after the Panthers 6-2 victory in Washington, took 14 hours and was spread over two days.
After covering only 200 miles in six hours Sunday evening, the three decided to rest in Oxford, N.C., before driving the remaining distance Monday morning. Vokoun was in Atlanta by early afternoon and was practicing with some of his teammates at 2:30 p.m.
“I felt pretty good,” said Vokoun of his Monday practice. “You know, I haven’t played in a little time. I haven’t done too much the last four days. I felt terrible at first (in practice) but I knew I would improve.”
