09:46 AM ET 10.19 | Fear not, Bolts fans. Lightning captain Vinny Lecavalier missed Monday's game with a bruised knuckle below his right index finger, but he is not expected to miss significant time. Lecavalier took a puck off his right hand from a shot by Florida D Bryan McCabe during the second period of Saturday's loss to the Panthers. He finished the game despite swelling in the finger and hoped to be ready to play Monday. But when he showed up at the rink, most of the swelling had subsided but he said it was difficult to grip a stick. He skated briefly on his own after the team came off the ice for the morning skate.

Im looking forward to what this team can do. If Vinny can contribute and Stammer keeps flying who knows. At least were gonna see some offense.

Hulk Hogan and that guy in section B, row E, seat 12. I cant think of his name, but Tampa brass says he's a season ticket holder.

A thread solely based on a bruised knuckle? Guys play with broken feet, and other ailments, but lets break out the sympathy for the sore knuckle on Vinny"I don't seem to have it anymore" Lecavalier. LOL

That settles it! I am re-negotiating my salary. I just won't do anything more until they give in to my demands. (damn I wish I could type in bold).
