from Harvey Fialkov of the SunSentinel,
In a surprise move, Florida Panthers coach Pete DeBoer said that backup goalie Scott Clemmensen will start Thursday night against the Nashville Predators.
Starting goalie Tomas Vokoun was stunned by the news because he is coming off a 4-3 overtime victory against the Washington Capitals and had a day off.
When asked if he was surprised by the move, Vokoun said, “Absolutely.”
“I’m very surprised,” he added. “I got an explanation but didn’t agree with it. My job is to play. The coach is there to make the decisions. I’m here to obey them whether I like it or not. It’s not very usual for a goalie after you win a game. I personally didn’t think I played a bad game. It seemed like he had a different assessment.”
