Kukla's Korner Hockey

Tomas Vokoun is prepared to play 82 games — if not more — this season. Just don't expect him to be the Nashville Predators' goalie every time they take the ice. The combination of a regular-season schedule altered by a three-week Olympic break and the Predators' playoff aspirations has Vokoun thinking about how and when he will have time to rest. "I guess I'm going to play a lot, but there's a difference between playing a lot and playing too much," he said. "Hurting, getting worn out — it's a tough mental game. Once in a while you need a night off and you need to kind of step away from hockey. We have a great backup goaltender. Everyone has total confidence in (Chris Mason). So we'll see how it goes. It's a matter of how you feel and communicate with the coaches."
