Flyers' Lecavalier Ascends To Second Line

News: Vincent Lecavalier will see time in the second line in Tuesday's Game 3 against the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has seen less than 10 minutes of ice time in Games 1 and 2 of the series, logging one assist. He'll skate alongside Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds on Tuesday.

Lecavalier Contributes Two Points For Flyers

News: Vincent Lecavalier scored the opening goal -- his 20th of the year -- and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 romp over Florida.
Analysis: It looked touch-and-go for a while there, but Vincent Lecavalier has successfully struggled his way to 20 goals -- the 13th time he's reached that mark in the NHL. He's putting the finishing touches on one of the worst campaigns of his career, but does at least have consecutive two-point games and seven points in his last seven contests.

Flyers' Lecavalier Ends Brief Scoreless Skid

News: Vincent Lecavalier potted a goal and added an assist in Sunday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: The veteran forward had been held off the scoresheet for the previous three games, but he came back strong Sunday despite seeing only 12:12 of ice time. Vincent Lecavalier's 35 points in 65 games aren't anything to scoff at, but he's not really worth rostering in shallow formats at this stage in his career.

Flyers' Lecavalier Tallies Two Goals

News: Vincent Lecavalier lit the lamp twice, was plus-2, and had nine shots on goal Sunday against the Bruins.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier now has over 400 goals on his career, but more pressingly he has 18 goals on the season. However, his performance this season hasn't usually been quite this good, as he is a minus-14 and only has 116 shots on goal for the year.

Flyers' Lecavalier Demoted To Fourth Line

News: Vincent Lecavalier has been demoted to the fourth line for Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, Philly.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Craig Berube said he will take things "shift by shift", so the situation bears watching. Vincent Lecavalier's been disappointing this season, but it's hard to imagine that he'd stick on the fourth line for long. For Friday's game, Tye McGinn will step into Lecavalier's typical role as the second-line left wing.

Flyers' Lecavalier Tallies 15th Of Season

News: Vincent Lecavalier scored his 15th goal of the season in Saturday's shutout win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: It was a thing of beauty from Vinny, who took a breakway pass from Luke Schenn before fighting off a backchecking Matt Niskanen, and beating Pens' goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Vincent Lecavalier now has three goals in his last six games, giving him 27 points in 57 games on the season.

Flyers' Lecavalier Brawls, Gets Tossed In Win

News: Vincent Lecavalier was ejected after twice fighting Capitals' defenseman John Erskine. The Flyers' center said the fight was "instinctive," according to Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly.com.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier rewarded owners with 17 PIM as a result of the fight. But don't expect much more PIM-performances like this -- he's only earned four game misconduct penalties in his career.

Flyers' Lecavalier Nets Goal, 900th Career Point

News: Vincent Lecavalier scored the game-winner in overtime in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Two goals in two consecutive games, and a three-game point streak is a promising start to the final stretch of the season. Owners will hope Vincent Lecavalier can erupt for a multi-point game soon -- he hasn't had one in over 25 games.

Flyers' Lecavalier Closing In On Milestone

News: Vincent Lecavalier kicked off the Flyers' 4-2 victory over the Rangers on Saturday with a first-period tally.
Analysis: The goal was his 13th of the season and gives him 899 points for his career. He'll look to reach the milestone total when the Flyers take the ice Sunday vs. the Capitals.

Flyers' Lecavalier Settling In At Wing

News: Vincent Lecavalier is feeling more comfortable in his new role at left wing, reports Sarah Baicker of CSNPhilly.com.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has struggled since returning from a back injury, posting just nine points in 24 games. With the Flyers stacked at the center position, Lecavalier was shifted to the wing position a few games before the Olympics. Owners should keep a close eye on him in the coming games -- if his production doesn't improve, he may not be worth a regular start.

Flyers' Lecavalier Scores In Loss

News: Vincent Lecavalier managed to tie the game at 1-1 before the Ducks took over and iced Thursday's game 5-3.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier also posted a not-so-fashionable minus-3 rating on the evening. He has been what most expected him to be this year: an aging forward who still has a penchant for scoring. His 12 goals on the season won't cause Flyers' GM Paul Holmgren to erect a statue in his honor, but if he can remain healthy, he's still worth consistent starts in your lineup.

Lecavalier Pots Late Winner For Flyers

News: Vincent Lecavalier's goal with 15 seconds remaining in the third period was the difference-maker in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: It was a nice goal off a fine pass out of a net-mouth scramble by Matt Read, with Vincent Lecavalier just letting it rip past a helpless Jhonas Enroth. Lecavalier's been better lately, with four points in his last six games -- not great, but worlds better than the one point he put up in the prior eight. Still, he doesn't have a multi-point game since Nov. 12, and though obviously the breakout potential is there, he's looking like a bust already in Year 1 of a five-year contract that has him signed through age 37.

Lecavalier Collects Assist In Flyers' Loss

News: Vincent Lecavalier assisted on Sean Couturier's goal in the second period of Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier also racked up three shots on just over 16 minutes of ice time. The assist is an encouraging sign for fantasy owners who were anticipating the center's return after a nine-game absence.

Flyers' Lecavalier Playing Saturday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) will play in Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, despite receiving a three-to-four week timetable less than two weeks ago, the Flyers' official website reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier's return comes as a major surprise given that earlier in the week his timetable was said to still be at 2-3 weeks. The Flyers won't be complaining, and neither should fantasy owners, as Lecavalier has 14 points (nine goals) through 22 appearances this season.

Flyers' Lecavalier Optimistic About Early Return

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) said he had his best day of practice Thursday and believes he may be able to beat his two-week return timetable, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has already experienced multiple setbacks in his recovery from back spasms, so his pronouncement can probably be taken with a grain of salt. He'll need to string together multiple days in which the back pain has subsided in order for the Flyers or fantasy owners to be fully confident in his health.

Flyers' Lecavalier Progressing

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) is still 2-3 weeks away from returning, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said Wednesday that he's very encouraged by Vincent Lecavalier's progress, so the center seems to be a little bit ahead of schedule at this point. With nine goals and five assists in 22 games, the Flyers would love to get him back sooner, but he'll be out at least until the new year.

Flyers' Lecavalier Skates Tuesday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) participated in Tuesday's skate with the Flyers, Sarah Baicker of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier was placed on IR on Dec. 9 and was expected to miss about 3-4 weeks. He 's only about a week into that assessment, but it's a step in the right direction that he's back on the ice. There's no information that suggests he'll return ahead of schedule, but it's worth watching how his recovery progresses.

Flyers' Lecavalier Placed On IR

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) has been placed on injured reserve.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier hasn't played since Nov. 30 and is expected to miss another 3-4 weeks. Previously thought to be dealing with back spasms, he was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his lower back Sunday. Tye McGinn was called up from AHL Adirondack to take his place.

Flyers' Lecavalier Expected To Miss Another 3-4 Weeks

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture and is expected to miss another 3-4 weeks, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: The back issue has already cost Vincent Lecavalier more than a week, and it sounds like he may be out up to another month. Initially, it was believed that Lecavalier was just dealing with spasms, but upon further examination, he's been found to have a slight fracture. A trip to IR seems like an inevitability for the 33-year-old.

Flyers' Lecavalier Heads Home For Tests

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) left the team to return to Philadelphia for tests, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has missed the last three games with back spasms, but the team was encouraged by his participation in Saturday's morning skate. Unfortunately though, his back did not respond well afterwards and he's going to need to have some tests run to find the root of the problem. Continue to view him as day-to-day, but a diagnosis likely won't be available until early in the week.

Flyers' Lecavalier Doubtful For Monday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back spasms) appears doubtful to play Monday vs. the Senators, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier was able to skate Saturday morning, but assistant GM Rox Hextall indicated the forward will need some more time to recover. He's missed the last three games for the Flyers but remains a possibility to make his return late next week.

Flyers' Lecavalier Won't Play Saturday

News: Coach Craig Berube ruled Vincent Lecavalier (back) out for Saturday's game against the Stars, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier's back still hasn't fully recovered after he received treatment earlier this week, so the team will wait and see how he feels after getting the weekend off. He'll be missing his third straight game with the injury.

Flyers' Lecavalier Likely Out Wednesday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) is expected to miss Wednesday's game against the Red Wings, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier missed the team's morning skate to get treatment for back spasms, and the team is preparing for Wednesday's game under the assumption that he won't be in the lineup. The veteran center has nine goals and four assists in 22 games this season.

Flyers' Lecavalier Misses Practice Again

News: Vincent Lecavalier (back) was again absent from Tuesday's practice, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Though he's still considered questionable for Wednesday's game, it's now looking increasingly unlikely since he's been unable to practice the last couple of days. He'll try to give it a go during morning skate before coach Craig Berube makes a declaration on the forward's status.

Flyers' Lecavalier Out Monday

News: Vincent Lecavalier will not play in Monday's game against the Wild due to back spasms, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier did not skate Monday with the Flyers and will not make the start. He sustained the injury late in his last game against the Predators but played through the shootout. He' s hoping to be ready for Wednesday's game with the Red Wings.
