The Flyers will be without their leading goalscorer tonight against the Wild.

Vinny Lecavalier, who tops the team with nine tallies through 22 games this season, is out with back spasms. Lecavalier reportedly suffered the injury in the third period of Saturday‚Äôs win over the Predators, yet managed to skate through the remainder of the frame — and overtime — before potting the winning goal in the shootout.

Lecavalier, 33, has slowed down a bit after scoring seven points in eight October games to start the year. He has just one point in his last four contests, is minus-3 in November and has failed to record a shot on goal in each of his last two games.

      Vage? Come on bro.

      And 7-2-1 in last 10 is not the definition of a crappy season.
