Gary Bettman in Sunrise: Got Questions? Get Answers ... Bryan Allen OUT, Evgeny Dadonov, Tomas Vokoun IN

Bettman Gary Bettman is visiting warm South Florida this week for the Board of Governors meetings and will talk to the local media before tonight's game against the Avs.

Got some questions you would like answered by the Commish?

Leave your comments below or email them to me grichards@miamiherald.com

We'll put him on the spot! Just kidding. But I will pick the best questions, ask them and leave the responses here on a new post during the game.

-- Speaking of that, no television of any sort tonight. So, here's hoping the Panthers show replays of Avs goals (if there are any) on the scoreboard.

That said, please join us for a LIVE! in-game chat tonight. Should be fun. And it only costs 99 cents a minute! Just kidding. It's less than that.

Andy -- In net tonight: Craig Anderson vs. Tomas Vokoun.

And you thought you might get to see the Battle of (former and present) Florida Panthers Backups. Spoke to Scott Clemmensen today after the skate. He says he's not upset he didn't get another start after stopping 40 shots and beating the Coyotes in a shootout on Saturday.

He says all the right things. More on that later.

-- Evgeny Dadonov has been called up to fill in for Radek Dvorak. He was officially put on the DL today with a separated shoulder. Bryan Allen, Cory Stillman, Rostislav Olesz and Chris Higgins also out.

Beezercolo -- The Panthers want you to wear your old red 1996-era jerseys for tonight's game* since it's throwback night and all.

I asked the equipment guys if the Panthers were wearing old-style jerseys and they laughed. No such thing.

Joe Sakic and Brian Skrudland will be dropping the puck as the Panthers honor the 1996 Stanley Cup champion Avs.

(*) -- The Panthers really want you to go to Pantherland and buy a new jersey, preferably the one that looks like it was designed by the Tampa Bay Rays and presented by JetBlue Airlines. You know the one. But if you wear your old sweater, no one will yell at you. Yet.
