PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen will likely miss the Eastern Conference finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins because of a blood clot in his ankle.
Philadelphia general manager Paul Holmgren said Timonen was hit with a shot in Game 4 against Montreal. The Flyers won that series in five games and will open the next series at Pittsburgh on Friday night.
``We have to view this that he's not a player for us in the series, and march on,'' Holmgren said Thursday night.
