PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen left the game Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins during the second period with a lower-body injury and did not return.

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

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
