Vokoun ‘Resting’

from the Tennessean,
Tomas Vokoun is finally getting some rest, though it's probably not the kind he had in mind. The Predators' netminder sat on the bench during yesterday's Olympic quarterfinal, watching his native Czech Republic advance with a 3-1 win over Slovakia. "I'm a little surprised, but you do go through things like that,'' Coach Barry Trotz said. "Everything's a little different over there — even the way he got thrust into the number one job with no security blanket because of Hasek. There was probably a lot of pressure on him because there were high expectations for the Czechs going in.''
