Lightning C Vincent Lecavalier out indefinitely with broken right hand

TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier is out indefinitely because of broken right hand.

The Lightning said Tuesday night, during the first period of their game against Anaheim, that Lecavalier has a non-displaced fracture.

Lecavalier was hurt Saturday night during Tampa Bay's 2-1 win over Washington, but remained in the game. He underwent tests on Monday after leaving practice early.

Lecavalier has 21 goals and 46 points in 58 games this season. He has reached 20 goals in 12 consecutive seasons.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
