Nashville Looking For Backup

from the Tennessean,
With Nashville goalie Tomas Vokoun out for as many as six weeks with a thumb injury, Predators General Manager David Poile said he has started making phone calls inquiring about available backups. Two of the Toronto Maple Leafs' three pro scouts were in attendance Saturday, which could be significant because the team has three goalies — Andrew Raycroft, Jean-Sebastien Aubin and Mikael Tellqvist — on its NHL roster. Raycroft is the team's top netminder and won't be going anywhere, but the Leafs might be willing to part with Aubin (2-1-2 record, .891 save percentage and 3.21 GAA) or Tellqvist (0-1-0, .895 save percentage and 2.03 GAA).
