Lightning C Lecavalier out 4-5 weeks

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier is expected to be

sidelined four to five weeks after having surgery on his broken

right hand.

The team said the operation was performed Monday in Cleveland by

Dr. Tom Graham, who inserted a plate and screws to secure an

”unstable fracture.”

Lecavalier was injured during a game at Washington on Nov. 11.

He has three goals and six assists in 10 games this season.
