Monday, 02.23.2015 / 12:48 PM / News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen said Monday that he could make his season debut Saturday against the New York Rangers.

Timonen will travel with the Flyers this week to road games at the Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs but won't play. Instead he'll use the three days of practice to continue rounding into form.

"Tomorrow morning skate, Wednesday good practice and Thursday morning skate," Timonen said. "Those are the next steps -- more practices."

Timonen, who will turn 40 on March 18, has not played since being diagnosed with blood clots in his leg and lungs in August. But he began skating on his own Feb. 6 and has been practicing with the Flyers since Feb. 17.

Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller is headed back to Vancouver to get an MRI after sustaining a lower-body injury Sunday in the second period of a 4-0 win against the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, general manager Jim Benning said Monday.

Goaltender Jacob Markstrom has been recalled from Utica of the American Hockey League, the Canucks announced via Twitter. The Canucks (34-22-3) continue a five-game road trip Tuesday against the Boston Bruins.

At 1:11 of the second period with Vancouver leading 1-0, Miller was run into by teammate Jannik Hansen, who crashed into the net and made contact with Miller's right leg. Miller went to the dressing room and did not return. Backup Eddie Lack relieved Miller and made 27 saves.

"Eddie can carry the load going forward if he has to," Benning said. "Jacob has been outstanding in Utica too. We have great depth at goaltender."

RED WINGS RALLY TWICE IN THIRD FOR OT WIN . . .

The Detroit Red Wings erased a pair of two-goal deficits in the third period, highlighted by Pavel Datsyuk’s tying goal with 1:48 left in regulation, before Niklas Kronwall completed the comeback by scoring 36 seconds into overtime to defeat the Dallas Stars.

* The Red Wings improved to 33-14-10 (76 points) to keep pace with the Montreal Canadiens (38-16-5, 81 points) and Tampa Bay Lightning (37-18-6, 80 points) – who also won on Saturday – in the Atlantic Division.

* Elias says the Red Wings are the first team to trail by two goals (or more) in the third period, tie the game, and fall behind by at least two goals again before eventually winning since Jan. 16, 1934 when the Toronto Maple Leafs earned a 7-4 overtime win against the Ottawa Senators. In that game, the Maple Leafs trailed 2-0 at the start of the third period before tying the game at 2-2; the Senators then pulled ahead 4-2 before the Maple Leafs forced overtime; they scored three times in the extra period.
