Report: Lecavalier could return for Lightning

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier is on the ice for the team's morning skate in a regular-colored jersey, according to reporters covering the team's practice, and could return to the lineup for the Lightning's game Thursday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Lecavalier has been out since March 12 with a lower-body injury that multiple media outlets have reported to be a broken foot.

Prior to Thursday, Lecavalier had been wearing a red jersey signifying he was not cleared for contact.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
