In hockey, NHL goalie Tomáš Vokoun earned his 4th shutout of the season on Saturday, allowing Florida to beat Ottawa by three unanswered goals. Vokoun, who has been nominated to the Czech Olympic hockey team as its starting goalie, stopped a total of 24 shots. All the same, he was not named the first star in Saturday’s match: that honour went to fellow Czech Rostislav Olesz who scored two goals - both in the 2nd period.
In other action, it was a poor night for Atlanta goalie Ondřej Pavelec against Washington. He was pulled after allowing four goals in 24 minutes. Washington won the game by a final score of 8:1. In net for Washington was another Czech, Michal Neuvirth, who blocked 38 out of 39 shots.
