The Flyers are hoping veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen decides to return next season.

Timonen was the Flyers' anchor on the blue line again this season but he will turn 40 next season. His lack of footspeed, obvious against a quicker New York team in the first round of the playoffs, was saved only by his hockey sense and positional awareness. Timonen earned $6 million this year. The little Finnish warrior has banked north of $54 million in his career and now needs to decide whether he should play one more year. Will he retire? "I hope not," coach Craig Berube said. "He's still a good player . . . He gave everything he had." Berube hopes not because he knows the Flyers do not currently have the player to replace Timonen on the depth chart.

The Philadelphia Flyers will be looking to play a more aggressive game against the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

The Rangers have a 3-2 series lead. "We have to get more shots and when we are more aggressive, we create more turnovers," Timonen said on Monday. "We score more. We get more shots on the net. It comes down to being more aggressive. Sometimes you sit back a little too much and you give too much room for the other team. That's not really our game. Our game is skating and forechecking hard and being aggressive. To me, tomorrow we're gonna be home and we have to play our game." Timonen got his first point of the series in Game 5.

The Flyers made veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen a healthy scratch on Saturday.

It was a good move by the Flyers as the 39-year-old blueliner has had a long season which included playing in the Olympics. Timonen may also sit on Sunday as he gets ready for the post-season. He had only five points in his first 27 games but had 14 in his last 18 before the weekend as he now has five goals and 33 points.

Kimmo Timonen managed to bounce back from a slow start this season.

We were a little over a month into the season before Timonen even recorded his first point and he had five points in his first 27 contests. By comparison, he has 14 points in 18 games since the Olympic break. "I think he's a lot like the whole team," Flyers coach Craig Berube said. "I think he's gotten better and better as the year went on. I think he was rejuvenated at the Olympics, going there. His team did well. He believes in his hockey team." It makes you wonder what the future might hold for Timonen, who is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this summer. If he decides against retirement, the 39-year-old defenseman might be worth grabbing as a last-round gamble in standard league drafts in 2014-15.
