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'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
