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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
