Vincent Lecavalier will participate in his 1,000th contest on Monday.

"I'm excited about it, but you don't take it for granted," Lecavalier said. "When I came in (to the league) at 18, I wasn't telling myself I was going to play 1,000 games, because you never know what's going to happen." Lecavalier started off the season on a high note by scoring a goal and an assist in Tampa Bay's 6-3 victory over Washington.
