Belak's brawl with Georges Laraque last night really seemed to give a charge to the crowd, gave a boost to the Panthers. Six seconds after the fight, Rostislav Olesz scored.
Belak admitted it was fun, said it's been too long since he had been in a good throw down.
-- Big news coming out of practice today is that Tomas Vokoun will start Saturday against the Thrashers.
-- Tanner Glass has been sent back to Rochester (actually flew to San Antonio to join the team) with Jozef Stumpel and Noah Welch supposedly back next week. Branislav Mezei will apparently be the odd D-man out, he was part of the injured skate Mike Kitchen put the guys through after practice.
