Replay of the Day: Granted he’s missed 18 games due to injury, but Tampa Bay Lightning centre Vincent Lecavalier, 31, is having his least productive season goal-wise in a decade.
And now we know why.
It’s because Vinny doesn’t have Montreal Canadiens goaltender Peter Budaj setting him up for gimmes.
With the Habs’ first-string goaltender Carey Price done for the season with a concussion, Budaj was between the pipes Wednesday night. Until he wasn’t.
Watch as Budaj leaves his post(s) and feeds a perfect tape-to-tape pass to Lecavalier for an easy game-tying goal.
Budaj, however, would have the last laugh, as the Habs won 5-2.
