Vincent Lecavalier Hit Three Posts and No Net During One Improbable Shot

Tuesday March 25th, 2014

Vincent Lecavalier hasn't been having a banner season in his first year with the Philadelphia Flyers. The Philadelphia Inquirer recently wrote of his play, "He has one goal in his last nine games and just 15 in 58 games this season -- a level of production that can't come close to justifying the investment the Flyers made in him."

Of course this unlucky break shown above during Monday night's game against the Kings likely won't do much to silence critics. Lecavalier managed to hit all three posts and narrowly avoid the net during what can only be described as an unlikely play. The Flyers would ultimately lose the game 3-2, making the miss all the more painful.
