The Tampa Bay Lightning signed center Vincent Lecavalier to a 4-year deal yesterday, securing one of its two front-line stars and keeping a key piece of its Stanley Cup championship team. The Lightning still is attempting to sign NHL MVP and scoring champion Martin St. Louis, but the signing of Lecavalier to a multiyear deal is good news for the defending champs, who could have lost the 25-year-old star next offseason if he became an unrestricted free agent. He reportedly will earn $27.5 million.

When the Tampa Bay Lightning called, Barry Melrose was eager to listen. Out of coaching for 13 years, he missed the passion and competition of the NHL. Countless hours of watching games as a television analyst intensified his desire to return to the bench, and it didn't hurt that he'd be able to work with talent like Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and No. 1 draft choice Steve Stamkos. "They approached me. I couldn't wait to say yes," Melrose said yesterday after the Lightning's new owners introduced the ex-Los Angeles Kings coach.

On the verge of giving away a big lead in what would have been a fifth consecutive loss, Tampa Bay Lightning coach John Tortorella called a timeout and gathered his players for a pep talk. The gist of his message? "We're playing well," center Tim Taylor recounted. "Control yourselves. " Tortorella then sent his club back onto the ice to finish off a victory. Vincent Lecavalier scored his 200th career goal and assisted on Martin St. Louis' 21st and 22nd of the season, helping the visiting Lightning build a big lead it nearly gave away before beating the Washington Capitals, 5-4, last night.

The Flyers activated backup goaltender Michal Neuvirth before the start of the game Thursday and sent Jason LaBarbera to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Neuvirth had been sidelined since leaving a game on Oct. 21 with an upper body injury. He was struck in the helmet by a stick after allowing a goal against Boston. Neuvirth had posted shutouts in his first two starts, filling in admirably for Steve Mason after the starter left the team to deal with a personal issue. Mason started on Thursday.

THOUGH DAVE Hakstol wouldn't confirm specifics on exactly who will be in Tuesday's lineup, observing practice provided all the necessary confirmation that need not be released from the lips of the reticent first-year NHL coach. When the Flyers finally return to the ice following a five-day break from game action, a fully healthy R.J. Umberger appears destined to be a healthy scratch against Dallas. Umberger missed time last week with an undisclosed upper-body injury and returned to the ice Friday, participating in about half of the day's practice.

THE SEASON was still young. Vincent Lecavalier returned to the Flyers' lineup from a fracture in his lower back on Dec. 21 in Columbus and was moved to the wing for the first time in his 15-year career. It was Game No. 36. Steve Downie sat out that game and sliding Lecavalier to the wing was a cut-and-paste move for Craig Berube. Lecavalier, 33, was still new to the Flyers. He talked about the move with Berube at the time, but didn't voice his displeasure for the seemingly temporary transition.

SINCE TAKING his seat at the Flyers' master controls three games into the season, coach Craig Berube hasn't really pushed too many buttons. Calm and collected, Berube has let his players play, for the most part. Lines have rarely been overhauled, except in the case of injury. Only on very few occasions have players been criticized publicly. In turn, Berube has restored the confidence of a once-fragile team that would crack under the first hint of pressure. So, it came as a bit of a surprise yesterday when Berube decided to drop highly paid veteran Vincent Lecavalier to the fourth line before game No. 73 of the season.

THE FLYERS set a new record for franchise futility last night. Today, they will need to try to break out of their slump in Detroit without the help of two of their top six forwards. Both Vincent Lecavalier and Scott Hartnell left last night's 2-1 loss against the Phoenix Coyotes with vague injuries and did not accompany the team on their charter flight to the Motor City. The Flyers have scored only six goals and set a record for fewest goals in their first five games to start a season.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - With a week between preseason games, it's made for a rather quiet training camp for the Flyers. But opening night is in just 9 days, meaning it's time for a few bold (or boldly stupid) roster predictions.   Forwards We know of 11 locks already on the roster - Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, Scott Hartnell, Wayne Simmonds, Vincent Lecavalier, Matt Read, Sean Couturier, Zac Rinaldo, Brayden Schenn, Adam Hall and Max Talbot - and we also can go one step further.

Are the Flyers better or worse than they were when the season ended and they watched the playoffs on their big-screen TVs? Better. How much better? Ah, that's open to debate. They added puck-moving defenseman Mark Streit, playmaking center Vincent Lecavalier, and resurgent goalie Ray Emery since the season ended. They subtracted injury-prone Danny Briere and goalie/stand-up comic Ilya Bryzgalov, among others. Briere's great leadership qualities will be absorbed by Lecavalier, and the locker room will have more focus and fewer distractions because Bryzgalov's sometimes-hilarious sideshow has left town.

The Flyers improved their attack by adding 33-year-old center Vincent Lecavalier this week. Now it's time for them to get a bit younger on the front line. Before they agreed to terms with Lecavalier, general manager Paul Holmgren indicated the Flyers were trying to re-sign 33-year-old Simon Gagne if the price was right. With all due respect to the classy Gagne - who played well in 27 games after the Flyers acquired him from the Kings last season - it's time to go in a different direction.

IF THERE ARE any fireworks left over, hockey fans may want to save them for noon today: the official beginning of hockey's annual free-agent frenzy. For the first time in its history, the NHL allowed free agents a 48-hour negotiating period before today's kickoff, so the number of early signings should be at an all-time high. Here are answers to five burning questions facing the Flyers: 1. Will the Flyers make another splash in free agency? Probably not, given the fact that the Flyers are the NHL's only team currently over next season's $64.3 million salary cap. This is one of the thinnest free-agent classes in recent memory - perhaps ever.

The agent for newly acquired Flyers free-agent center Vincent Lecavalier said the appeal of the franchise had much to do with the player's decision to move to Philadelphia. Lecavalier, after being let go through a compliance buyout by the Tampa Bay Lightning, agreed to terms of a five-year, $22.5 million contract with the Flyers on Tuesday. He can't technically sign the contract until Friday. "We could have had a much more significant contract if he made the decision solely on money," agent Kent Hughes said Wednesday in a phone interview.
