After seven-game absence, Lecavalier likely back for Flyers tomorrow

Vincent Lecavalier will be back in the lineup on Saturday when the Flyers take on the Panthers in Sunrise, per the Philly Inquirer.

Lecavalier, who had three points in his first three games before suffering a foot injury, hasn’t played since Oct. 11 — a 4-3 shootout loss to Montreal — and will draw back into the lineup centering a line with R.J. Umberger and Wayne Simmonds, based on Friday’s practice.

Getting Vinny back isn’t the only change Philly will undergo in the coming days. Steve Mason will start against Florida — his first nod in four games — while Shayne Gostisbehere will be sent back down to AHL Lehigh Valley.

It’s also expected that d-man Brandon Manning will get one more game (against the Panthers) before newly-signed Carlo Colaiacovo (likely) makes his debut on Tuesday against Edmonton.
