Lightning captain Vinny Lecavalier's brood about to swell to two



Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vinny Lecavalier has a bit more on his mind than the start of training camp. He and wife Caroline are expecting their second child, a boy, in about five weeks. He will not, Lecavalier said, laughing, be named Vincent. The couple's first child, Victoria, is 16 months.

"I'm excited," Lecavalier said after his skate Monday at the Ice Sports Forum.

But he also is a little wary, in a good way.

"It's been almost too good to be true with Victoria. She's such a good baby," Lecavalier said. "The next one might be a little more of a challenge. But families have five, six, seven kids and they can do it, so I'm not worried."

Besides, Lecavalier said, "My wife is a great mother."
