Flyer GM Paul Holmgren acknowledged that Vincent Lecavalier had a difficult time adapting to Craig Berube's coaching system.

Lecavalier had much more success under former Flyer coach Peter Laviolette's attacking system than Berube's defense-first approach. "A lot of unfortunate things go against him - including a back injury and a position change", said Holmgren. "But, in my opinion, he's still a good player, and having said what I just said, he still scored 20 goals, which is no small feat. Moving forward, we just need to try to figure out how things fit a little better." We shall see if Vinny can adapt.

Vincent Lecavalier is projected to center the second line in Game 3 on Tuesday.

Lecavalier averaged just 8:24 minutes of ice time in the Flyers' first two games of the 2014 playoffs. He didn't live up to expectations during the regular season, but he's still a major offensive threat. His linemates will likely be Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds.

Vincent Lecavalier played only 7:42 minutes in Game 1.

It was the least amount of ice time that any Flyer forward received in the game and it must seem like quite a shock for a player of Lecavalier's talent. He has been relegated to a bottom six spot among forwards but he does see a lot of time on the power play. The problem with that was the Rangers only took one penalty in Game 1. Hopefully the 34-year-old to be on Monday, will get his game turned around.

Lecavalier responded with one of his best games in a few months, scoring a power-play goal and helping the Flyers defeat freefalling Toronto, 4-2, at the Wells Fargo Center.

"That line was very good, very effective." Lecavalier, who had been playing left wing on the second unit, centered a line with Zac Rinaldo and Adam Hall.
