CSN Philly reports Flyers forward Vincent Lecavalier is expected to return to the lineup Thursday at home against the New York Rangers. Lecavalier missed the team's last three games with what the Flyers are calling a "lower-body injury" and skated on Monday with a non-contact jersey.
Lecavalier, 33, was one of the few Flyers that actually got off to a good start offensively this season. He showed his top-notch puck-handling skills along with his booming slap shot which is a real weapon on the power play. The former-Lightning captain has one goal and two assists in five games with the Flyers posting a minus-1 rating.
His presence can only help the anemic Flyers offense.
