The Philadelphia Flyers tweetedout photos of Ilya Bryzgalov's forceful new mask, a tribute to the Star Wars universe. The custom job, created by Langhorne, Pa.-based artist Fran Drummond, features Darth Vader, Yoda, R2-D2, an Imperial storm trooper, the Millennium Falcon and a TIE fighter.

But why, pray tell, is Yoda is wielding a red lightsaber, the color blade customarily used by the Sith (i.e. the bad guys) throughout Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and those other three?

We've got a very bad feeling about this.
