Vincent Lecavalier's 1000th game will be against the Islanders

The full Tampa Bay Lightning schedule for the 2012-2013 season has not been released, as we're waiting for the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), but word has leaked out that the Bolts first few game dates at the Tampa Bay Times Forum are as follows:

Saturday, January 19th versus Washington Capitals
Monday, January 21st: at New York Islanders
Tuesday, January 22nd: at Carolina Hurricanes
Friday, January 25th: versus the Ottawa Senators

What this means is that Vincent Lecavalier, who has a grand total of 998 NHL games played - and all in a Lightning uniform, may play his 1000th career game on the road at the Islanders. It's possible that he could be held out those two road games so that he plays his 1000th game in Tampa, but that's probably not very likely in a shortened season. However, the Lightning will almost certainly still celebrate his accomplishment during the following home game, versus the Ottawa Senators on the 25th.
