Timonen's Season Ends; Lilja Recalled

At last, the battered Finnish warrior's season has finally ended.

Kimmo Timonen will miss the final three games of the 2013 season due to a foot fracture, an injury he more than likely may have been playing with for some time. He is the sixth Flyers defenseman to see his season end on the injured reserve.

Timonen's replacement will be Andreas Lilja, who was recalled earlier today from Adirondack. 

Timonen was the only blueliner up until this point to have played in all of the Flyers' 45 games.

In 45 games, Timonen scored five goals and added 24 assists for 29 points. He was on pace for a 50-point season in an 82-game schedule, possibly his highest totals since the 2006-07 season with Nashville.

Lilja will be in the lineup tonight against Boston.
