I’ve never been the biggest Vinny Lecavalier fan. I’ve always thought he’s lazy and one-dimensional. And he is. But geez. How amazing was his third period goal? He was typically out of position, chilling near the red line when Martin St. Louis managed to pry the puck away from Philly and hit Lecavalier right as his skate blades were crossing the center line. And from there, Lecavalier didn’t stop moving his feet until the red light flipped on. It was the perfect breakaway.
Lecavalier isn’t perfect but there are some things he does very well.
Tampa beat the Flyers 4-1. They lead the series 2-1.
