Downie Out, Lecavalier In For The Flyers Tonight

via the Philadelphia Flyers,

Prior to tonight's game at Columbus against the Blue Jackets, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren announced that forward Steve Downie will not be in the line-up.

Downie will also be out 7-10 days with an upper-body injury.

With Downie out of the line-up tonight, Vinny Lecavalier will return to action.

Originally expected to be out 3-4 weeks from Dec. 9 with a non-displaced back fracture, Lecavalier will appear in his first game since Nov. 30 at Nashville. He has missed the last nine games, and a total of 13 games on the year.

Lecavalier leads the team in power-play goals with five and is tied for second on the team in goals (9). In his first season with the Flyers he has 14 points (9g-5a) in 22 games.
