Washington Capitals goaltender Tomas Vokoun isn't thrilled with being reduced to a backup. After starting the season strong, Vokoun has been on the bench since Dec. 13 and seen Michal Neuvirth play the last five contests. "I can't really tell you. I don't know what I did wrong to be in this spot," Vokoun told the Washington Times. "I'm a professional hockey player and I don't make decisions who plays, who doesn't. That's not (a) question for me. All I can answer is where I play, how I play and how I felt I did out there and stuff like that. That's pretty much all I can tell you about." Vokoun, 35, has posted a 12-8-0 mark with one shutout and a 2.81 goals-against average this season. Neuvirth, 23, has posted a 5-6-2 mark with a 3.06 goals-against average this campaign.
