Kimmo Timonen D PHI 3 Days
Kimmo Timonen hasn't decided if he'll extend his career beyond the 2013-14 campaign.
Timonen will become an unrestricted free agent this season. He will turn 39 on March 18, but he hasn't won the Stanley Cup and if he extends his career, it will probably be out of a desire to accomplish that feat. "That's why I'm still here," he said. "It keeps you motivated every night, thinking about that I still have a chance to get it. Hopefully it's this year. These next 18 games are really huge for me and our team to get into the playoffs. Anything's possible. That's my opinion. . It doesn't matter how many points you got during the regular season. We have to get in [the playoffs], then anything's possible." Timonen's offensive production has dropped off this season, but he's still good enough to land another NHL contract if he decides to continue his career.

Kimmo Timonen thinks the Flyers should take a page from Finland's bronze medal winning run in the 2014 Winter Games.
"If we play as a team, I really believe we have a good chance," Timonen said. "The way we ended before the break with goalie playing really well and playing as a team, we have a good chance. It takes everybody. The way we played on Finland was as a team, and we didn't have any big stars other than [Teemu] Selanne. You play as a team with a good goalie, anything is possible." Finland also managed to overcome a number of significant injuries. The Flyers wrapped up their pre-Olympic schedule with a four-game winning streak and consequently have a three-point cushion in their battle for a playoff spot.

Kimmo Timonen (foot) will skate in the morning before deciding if he is able to play on Monday.
Timonen missed Saturday's game but is not in a walking boot or crutches so that's good news. "If it were broken I wouldn't be walking around, I can tell you that," Timonen laughed. "Pain is always there. It's really hard [to find rest]. That's why I hate missing games. But sometimes maybe you miss two or whatever. That game off [Saturday] was needed, let's put it that way. Sometimes it gets to the point where you have to say, 'Am I helping the team or hurting the team?' Especially, when you are almost 39-years-old. You've got to be in good shape to go in there. I've battled through injuries all my career but sometimes it gets to the point where you have to say, 'I'm hurting the team.'" Timonen has 19 points in 55 games. Stay tuned.
