Toronto Sick Bay: Craig Anderson Versus Toronto ... Tomas Vokoun Has the Flu ... Fidel Castro and the Toronto Maple Leafs

Ferrisnurse In quite the surprise, Craig Anderson is in net tonight against the Leafs.

Vokoun is sick and isn't on the bench for the start of the game. He was apparently here for warmups, so he's probably resting in the locker room.

So maybe that's what the Rochester rumors were all about? Think they might have had trouble getting a flight for someone? I don't know. More as we go. Enjoy the game.

-- UPDATE: Vokoun is indeed the official backup goalie; he is sitting in the Panthers locker room and he is still in his pads just in case Anderson gets hurt. Vokoun is starting the second period on the Florida bench, drinking Gatorade. Or a Hot Toddie. He's drinking something.

-- Joe Nieuwendyk is here. He sends his best to everyone. So does Nik Hagman. He just said hello to Craig Anderson and the back of the net.

Cuba 001  -- Now here's a sponsor even the Panthers would say no to: On the boards just past the Leafs bench is an advertisement for Cuban tourism.

Daily flights to Habana from Toronto and Montreal. All aboard!

OK, maybe not.

-- Oh, and to be timely, enjoy this exchange between Anderson and some dude named Erik. What's a Leaf?
