Turns out, Kimmo Timonen’s injury is minor.

According to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, Timonen is listed as “day-to-day” with a lower-body injury. He left Thursday’s loss to the Penguins in the second period and did not return.

Holmgren said Timonen should be ready to practice Monday.

Ray Emery and Jake Voracek did not skate on Friday. Emery didn’t play against the Penguins, but Craig Berube said Emery took the day off because of a “couple things bothering him.”

Voracek appeared to suffer an apparent knee injury in Thursday’s loss, as he was wincing on the bench in pain and grabbing his right knee. He did not miss any shifts, but did not practice Friday. The team officially labeled it as a “maintenance day.”

Scott Hartnell (upper-body) and Vinny Lecavalier (lower-body) will skate on their own on Sunday.
