Timonen, Voracek expected back tonight

All-Star defenseman Kimmo Timonen and left wing Jakub Voracek are expected to return to the Flyers lineup for tonight's game against the New Jersey Devils. Shut down for five games due to a nagging back injury, Timonen participated in Tuesday's morning skate in Voorhees and said afterward that he was "95 percent sure" he'd play tonight. "It's one of those things where I don't think it's gonna go away, but hopefully it will last," Timonen said. "We'll see." Timonen had played 248 consecutive regular-season games until sitting out a March 4 game in Washington and four more after that. "Mentally, it's been great, actually," Timonen said.
