The Atlanta Thrashers will not have Anthony Stewart in their line-up for tonight's game against the Canadiens. Stewart had reportedly ran into some issues with his travel documentation, which wouldn't allow him to cross the border for their visit to Montreal. Instead, he'll be meeting the team on their next stop in Philadelphia.
This is considered to be a man-game lost to Leon G. tonight, who picked up Stewart in the second waiver draft this season.
The word out of the Panthers organization is that Tomas Vokoun will miss tonight's tilt against the Blue Jackets, because of his sore back. Tyler Plante has been recalled to back up Scott Clemmensen tonight in the game. Vokoun is considered day-to-day with this injury, questionable for their next game.
Chris M., trying to gain ground on the duo for 2nd in the standings, will be missing out on a key start for Vokoun, one that he had a good chance of winning and posting a couple points.
