After all the worrying Flyers faithful did over Kimmo Timonen’s hurting wrist, it turns out all is well.
Timonen started this afternoon’s game against Ottawa after the Flyers were prepared to potentially go without him. The Flyers skated seven defensemen in warmups as Matt Walker got the call up from Adirondack, but Timonen was good to go and started the game.
The Flyers’ defensive issues this year have been many thanks to Chris Pronger’s season-ending concussion diagnosis. Timonen became the go-to guy on defense with Pronger out and a bad injury would’ve been a crushing blow to the team. Those worries are gone for now however as Timonen appears to be all right.
