Tyler Plante is Back Up; And He Brought his Mask ... Alexander Sulzer OUT

IMG_1271 COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Tomas Vokoun's back is acting up again, and if this back problem is anything like last year's, we may have seen the last of Mr. Vokoun this season.

Vokoun shut 'er down last year on April 6 because of tightness in the back.

With Vokuon out for the time being, the Panthers went back to Rochester to call up Tyler Plante. He's yet to make his NHL debut, but lets hope -- for his sake -- that it comes soon.

IMG_1267 With Plante back in the NHL, that means he's got the coolest mask in the NHL. If you remember, Plante had the Will Ferrell customized mask last year. This year, he went all Tombstone. Even though the Panthers made him get rid of the six shooters, he still has the bullet holes.

And in a Miami Herald exclusive, Plante says next year's mask is going to be a homage to the mullet. Looking forward to that one.

IMG_1268 -- Pete DeBoer says defenseman Alexander Sulzer has a serious groin injury and could be out some time. Clay Wilson has been called up.

-- So, tonight's Panthers-Blue Jackets tilt should be considered the NHL's must-see Game of the Night, right? This is going to be like watching the Washington Nationals play IMG_1269 the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sept. 14.
