Friday, January 16

12:32 p.m.
Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen, who was hurt on Thursday night in Tampa Bay after getting a deflected puck to the face, will be a game-time decision tonight against Florida (7:30 p.m., CW-57).

The Flyers held a team meeting at the Bank Atlantic Center this morning, and we caught up with Timonen for a brief Q and A afterwards.

Q: Do you remember what happened?
KT: "I remember [Mike Richards] shooting the puck but I didn't see what happened afterward. It was a deflected puck which hit my upper right lip. I remember bleeding hard. I remember everything."

Q: Were you ever close to passing out?
KT: "I was pretty close. But like I said, I remember everything that happened and I don't have a concussion."

Q: What is the damage?
KT: "There isn't any bone or tooth damage. I just got 25 stitches, inside, outside, everywhere. That's it."

Q: Can you play tonight?
KT: "I'm going to take the warm-ups tonight to see how I feel. I will probably have to use a full cage or something similar to that. We will see how it goes."

1996-1999:
  • January 22, 1996 -- Rod Brind'Amour scored with 2:39 left in the third and the game ended 1-1 in Philadelphia. Earlier in the third, Jody Hull put the Panthers up 1-0. JVB (30 saves for Florida) and Ron Hextall (23 saves) were the goalies.
  • February 14, 1996 -- Ron Hextall made 28 saves leading Philly to a 4-2 victory in Florida. John LeClair had a goal and an assist. The Panthers went 0-for-5 on the PP while the Flyers scored with 16 left on their only attempt with the man advantage.
  • May 2, 1996 -- In Game One of the East Semis, the Panthers gained a series lead by playing stellar team defense and limiting the Flyers' big guns while goalie JVB had a 2-0 shutout win. The teams combined for the lowest shot total in any Flyers' PO game ever with 33 (18-15, Flyers with the edge). Stu Barnes (1-1-2) and Dave Lowry scored goals, the second coming with just over four minutes with Kjell Samuelsson in the box. Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZ3RNW5cyWc
  • May 4, 1996 -- In Game Two, Eric Lindros' (1-2-3) third period goal snapped a 2-2 tie and provided the Flyers with a 3-2 victory in the Spectrum. Lindros was a key factor throughtout the game including some plays that infuriated the Panthers' brass like knocking off the mask of goalie JVB and cutting Stu Barnes (five stitches) near his eye. John LeClair (1-2-3) also had three points. The Flyers scored twice in the second period to take a 2-1 lead but Dave Lowry evened the score with a third period PPG. JVB made 44 saves for Florida. Philly outshot the Panthers 47-26 but goalie Ron Hextall made huge saves in the third period. After the game, Florida head coach Doug MacLean verbally attacked referee Mark Faucette and then he and Panthers' GM Bryan Murray contacted other NHL execs to complain that Lindros' stickwork was not whistled. The Panthers were issued a gross misconduct penalty at the 20:00 mark. Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJxgY3M55a4
  • May 7, 1996 -- In Game Three, the Flyers recorded a 3-1 victory in Miami. Dan Quinn (1-1-2) and Eric Lindros (GWG) scored on consecutive first period PPs with Brian Skrudlund off on a double minor for high-sticking. The Flyers outshot the Panthers 17-2 in the first period and led 2-0. The game finished with multiple penalties including a Lindros-Ed Jovanovski confrontation when the Flyers' captain tried to score into the empty net. Scott Mellanby, according to Flyers' head coach Terry Murray, punched Lindros while Bill Lindsay came in and jumped him. The game began with the Panthers' faithful chanting "Lindros Sucks" throughtout the National Anthem and then tossing plastic rats at him while he stood on the ice.
  • May 9, 1996 -- In Game Four, Dave Lowry's controversial goal 4:06 in OT gave Florida a 4-3 victory. Lowry's goal came as the net was lifted off its moorings by Scott Mellanby but a video replay called by referee Rob Schick was done to see if the puck was kicked into the goal, which it wasn't. Rob Niedermayer scored twice in the first period, including on the game's first shot, to give Florida a 2-0 lead at 8:23, the second of which came with two Flyers' defensemen in the box and on a 5-on-3. Mikael Renberg (2-0-2) and Rod Brind'Amour (1-1-2) scored second period goals within 78 seconds to tie the game but a crucial error cost the Flyers as defenseman Kerry Huffman, subbing for the injured Kevin Haller, created a gaffe and Stu Barnes capitalized with 5.5 seconds to go in the middle period when he batted a Paul Laus shot. The Flyers dominated the second period 24-11 in shots and held a 46-32 advantage for the game. With the Miami Arena crowd sensing victory, Renberg temporarily silenced them by scoring with 1:07 left in regulation. JVB made 43 saves for the Panthers. An odd moment: after the first period was over the Flyers complained that there was a clock malfuntion at the end of the first period, which was verified; the teams played the lost time of 3.6 seconds to start the second period. Rob DiMaio returned to the Flyers' lineup after missing the prior 17 games with a knee injury.


    Dale Hawerchuk helped set up Mikael Renberg's tying goal

  • May 12, 1996 -- In Game Five, Mike Hough scored 8:05 into the second OT to give the Panthers a 2-1 victory on Mother's Day in Philadelphia. Ron Hextall, highly praised afterwards by Terry Murray, made 40 saves and was one of the few bright spots in a dismal effort. At the 2:27 mark, the Flyers were given a five-minute PP for a Paul Laus elbow but managed just one shot on goal. Eric Lindros scored a PPG with one second left on a 5-on-3 in the second period but Stu Barnes tied the score early in the third period. The Panthers outshot the Flyers 17-5 in the two overtimes. It turned out to be the last Flyers' game played at the Spectrum (until two preseason games in 2008). No penalties were called after the 12:54 mark, meaning 55:11 was played without a call. The game drew the highest NHL rating ever for South Florida, an 8.2, beating the 4.9 and previous high for Game One of the series. Lindros said "We're coming back here. We're going to win."
  • May 14, 1996 -- In Game Six, Florida clinched the series with a 4-1 victory played in Miami Arena backed by JVB's 34 saves. Bill Lindsay scored a SHG in the first period and that 1-0 lead held until Rob Niedermayer scored a PPG early in the third. Florida took a 3-0 lead before John LeClair scored a late goal to cut the gap to 3-1. Kevin Haller returned to the Flyers' lineup for his first action all series (broken thumb). Florida's Scott Mellanby said "I kind of feel a little numb right now. I really didn't see this series going this way." Terry Murray said "JVB was the best player of the series. He was tremendous." A Miami Herald writer named Greg Cote said Murray was "annoyingly stubborn, that or a dunce of enormous gall... a poor delusional fellow..." for thinking the Flyers were the better team.
  • October 5, 1996 -- In the first regular season game played in the Flyers' new CoreStates Center, the Panthers won 3-1. Florida's Brad Smyth scored the first regular season goal in the building, his only goal of the season. Dainius Zubrus, at 18 years and 3 months, was the youngest Flyer to score a goal 13 seconds later to even the game 1-1. Scott Mellanby scored the eventual GWG. JVB made 31 saves for Florida.
  • October 27, 1996 -- The Panthers won for the second time in the month in Philadelphia. In this 3-2 win, Scott Mellanby scored the GWG 29 seconds into the second period and Florida never relinquished the lead. JVB made 21 saves for the victory.
  • November 2, 1996 -- Joel Otto's goal with 1:02 left in the third period snapped a 2-2 tie in a 3-2 win. The Flyers had 44 shots including 22 in the third when they socred twice. There were three fights in the game including two by Paul Laus (Shjon Podein and Dan Kordic) in the first period.
  • December 10, 1996 -- The Flyers held off a Florida rally for a 5-4 home win. Philly led 4-1 after two periods. Joel Otto, Eric Lindros and John LeClair each had a goal and an assist. The Panthers went 3-for-6 on the PP. There were a couple of brawls and a many minors in a chippy third period.
  • February 22, 1997 -- Eric Lindros (2-1-3) had three points and scored with 57.6 seconds left in OT to lift Philadelphia to a 4-3 win in Miami. Lindros won a key faceoff then passed back to Eric Desjardins whose shot was deflected by Lindros. The Flyers won an incredible 53 of 75 faceoffs. Philly also held a 40-34 shot advantage, 5-1 in overtime, including 15 combined from Lindros and Rod Brind'Amour who gave the Flyers a 3-2 lead when he stole Bill Lindsay's drop pass and scored a SHG breakaway. Garth Snow made 31 saves in the win, JVB made 36 saves in the loss. At the 15:04 mark, Johan Garpenlov of the Panthers suffered a severe knee-on-knee injury from Michel Petit resulting in a one-game suspension to the Flyer. Paul Laus of the Panthers attempted to fight Petit but was issued a minor-misconduct while Petit was given a major-misconduct. After the penalty was served, Scott Mellanby of Florida did get to Petit and he also was issued a misconduct. Said Garpenlov "I don't think he tried to hurt me but he did."
  • October 1, 1997 -- Ron Hextall made 27 saves in a 3-1 win in Philly. The Flyers went 2-for-5 on the PP while the Panthers missed on six chances. Chris Gratton gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead and after the game was tied 1-1 in the second period, the Flyers got PPGs from Dainius Zubrus and Pat Falloon.
  • November 14, 1997 -- John LeClair's second goal of the game snapped a 2-2 third period tie in a 5-2 win at Florida.

The Flyers scored times in about four minutes midway in the third to break open the tilt. LeClair had a game-high seven shots.
  • December 20, 1997 -- Garth Snow stopped 14 shots and Rod Brind'Amour (1-1-2) and Eric Lindros netted PPGs in the Flyers' 2-0 victory in Philadelphia. Lindros fought Rob Niedermeyer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ-d6pgfkK0

There were 142 PIMs whistled in the period (160 PIMs in the game). In another fight, Scott Mellanby fought Chris Joseph because he thought the Flyer cut Dino Ciccarelli.

The victory snapped Philly's five-game skid in this series. The ice condition in the game was poor and Danny Briere said afterwards "It's not an excuse to win or to lose because both teams have to play on the same ice. But for the fans, they should be allowed to watch a better show than what was put on the ice tonight, and I feel bad for them and I apologize."

I likely won't see any of this game.

I hope to get home to find out that they played with energy and smarts. And I hope Timonen is back.

The Panthers have been playing really well lately, and Deboer has them playing the game the way the Flyers need to.

The Flyers look like they're heading into another slide... hopefully they put the brakes on the slide this game.

If he's not back he needs to be questioned as to that letter he wears. A massive wack to the head is awful, but now's the time to turn this slide around.

You have GOT to be kidding me!! It wasn't just an errant high stick. He stopped a puck with his face/lip/teeth. If he's injured, he should stay out until he can play. If anyone should be questioned about the letter the wear on their jersey, it should Gagne and Richards as those guys have virtually disappeared the last couple games. One could even argue that they've been hurting the team with their play. Kimmo has been the glue for this team all season. He takes a PUCK TO THE FACE, and if he doesn't play in the next game, you want to strip him of his "A". I swear some people on here can just be ridiculous sometimes.

See? If I just wait long enough, someone else is able to put my feelings into words in a much more succinct manner than I could have. Thank you stafucci. Thank you very much.

What is the difference?

I was surprised he didn't return last night. I'm assuming he will tonight. I already gave my reason why it's important.

They said he lost a lot of blood, making him feel dizzy. That's why he didn't return to the Tampa game.

Lets not embarass ourselves again, go flyers go!

Seems like they are taking yesterday night seriously.

Quote:
"We're not paying a big enough price to win a hockey game right now," Stevens said after his club was outshot, 44-32, at the St. Pete Times Forum. ". . . Tonight we got in some penalty trouble, turned pucks over, and got into a bit of a track meet. The commitment to play defense right now is not there."
Quote:
It was really kind of embarrassing how much they outworked us, 44 shots to [32]," Richards said. "This is unacceptable for the team that we have, and really, a defensive-minded team that we have. We have to get back to [doing] the right things. If we outwork them [tonight] I like our chances, but that's the biggest thing. It's not X's-and-O's, it's the work ethic.

Give me a ****ing break. That was a puck moving extremely fast, that hit him square in the mouth. Broke teeth, split open his lip, and made him lose a lot of blood. If he misses tonight's game, his A should be questioned? **** off.

This team looks like they're a bit tired. When the effort is there - like the 1st period last night - they're still making stupid mistakes. They need to put in a bit more effort and pull their heads out of their ***** for at least 2 periods tonight or it's going to be another L.

We don't even know if he had to have surgery on/in his mouth. The guy took a puck in the mouth, this game is less than 24 hours later. Let's wait and see how the guy is feeling and assess the injury here.

Give your head a shake!

I'm not calling him a ***** if he can't get over the nausea in 24 hours.

But I'll call into question his leadership. You shake that **** off if you want your team to win.

You do realize you are talking about the guy who played (possibly still is) with a broken chip in his ankle. If he feels good to go, he will be out there.

I'm going to punch you in the face, make you lose 3-4 teeth, Knock you down and make you lose a pint of blood and a possible concusion. I want to see you wake up in the morning in shape to play hockey. Don't talk the tough stuff if you have never actually experienced how painful it is. Playoffs, yes maybe you make the sacrifice for the team, League game with still 40 to go. No. I'll take a fully fit kimmo, over someone suffering on the ice even if he missed a game. If you don't think that Kimmo deserves the A on that jersey, you don't watch the same team i do. He could so easily be wearing that C

Suffice to say, if it were just a punch...he never would have left the game.
