While it was first reported that the injury occurred during Monday's Winter Classic against the Rangers, Timonen said Saturday that it came during his first shift vs. Chicago.
"Well, it's my lower hand so everything I do with the stick, it hurts," Timonen said. "But, like I said, it wasn't the type of injury where I couldn't play."
Timonen posted his 24th assist of the season on Danny Briere's third-period equalizer.
Flyers coach Peter Laviolette on Briere's second-period fight with Senators forward Kyle Turris: "[Briere] probably gave up three to four inches. He's not a big guy. It gave our bench a lift."
Briere, who produced his fifth career hat trick, on possibly dropping the gloves more often: "I'm not planning on it, to be honest. I'll leave that to Jody [Shelley]."
The Flyers hit the post four times in the first two periods. . . . Scott Hartnell played in his 800th career game. . . . Briere's last fight came against San Jose's Marc-Edouard Vlasic on Nov. 20, 2009. . . . Jaromir Jagr (12 goals, 19 assists) missed his second straight game with a groin strain. . . . Matt Walker, who cleared waivers Saturday, and Shelley were healthy scratches.
