Two straight wins including a shutout of the Tampa Bay Lightning yesterday has earned Anderson a third consecutive start in goal on Friday. This follows three straight losses from Tomas Vokoun.

Before yesterday's game head coach Peter DeBoer made sure everyone knew Tomas Vokoun was the #1 in Florida. Of course Vokoun then went to visit a chiropractor for his still undisclosed injury.

"Anderson deserves to start again," DeBoer said after Wednesday's victory. "It's about winning hockey games. We know what Tomas is capable of. This isn't about him or competition or who is the starter. We need wins, and Anderson is hot."

UPDATE: Vokoun sat out practice today because of back spasms (Sun-sentinel)
