This is important, folks.

When you mess up something from Star Wars, it's a good bet that Star Wars fans are going to mercilessly beat you over the head over about it, shaming you for messing it up (I know, because I, too, am a Star Wars fan ... except for the prequels. They were just awful).

That's what happened to Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov when he unveiled his new Star Wars mask last week. The one that had Yoda using the wrong color lightsaber (it was red instead of green).

Shameful.

As Sportsnet's Ian Mendes passes along on Saturday morning, this travesty of an error has since been corrected.

You can stand down, Star Wars fans. It's over.
