Kimmo Timonen took a Jonathan Ericsson slap shot off the left foot and was hobbled for the rest of the shift. He came out for a few more shifts in the second period before disappearing down the tunnel and not returning to the game.
Head coach Craig Berube said after the win that Timonen's injury was not serious and "he will be fine."
There was some concern on Wednesday when Timonen was not on the ice for Flyers practice before they headed to Anaheim but the team stated that it was simply a maintenance day for the 38-year-old defenseman. He went through normal team drills Thursday in Anaheim and will be in the lineup Thursday night.
Timonen has lost a step but is still one of the best Flyers defensemen. In 54 games this season, Timonen has two goals and 17 assists while being third one the Flyers in average ice time at 20:49 per game. This is his seventh season in Philadelphia after spending his first eight seasons in the NHL with the Nashville Predators.
