Flyers' Timonen out for second straight game

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen will be out of the lineup again due to a lower-body injury when the Flyers play at the San Jose Sharks on Monday.

Timonen was injured blocking a shot in the third period of the Flyers' game Jan. 30 against the Anaheim Ducks. He sat out Philadelphia's game Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings.

The 38-year-old has 19 points in 55 games and is second among the team's defensemen with an average ice time of 20:43 per game.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
