Replay of the Day: Budaj’s big blunder

April 5, 2012, 1:42 PM

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.
