Timonen played 19 shifts and had 13:00 of ice time before leaving. He had a nine-second shift around 14 minutes into the second period and did not play again.

General manager Paul Holmgren said after the 4-1 loss that Timonen would be evaluated again on Friday.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
