The Philadelphia Flyers made moves near the NHL trade deadline to bolster a defense that was sorely missing Chris Pronger. It’s a good thing that Paul Holmgren targeted defense, because two more of the Flyers’ top defensemen, All Star Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros, have joined the injured list with lower body injuries. Kimmo Timonen had played in 248 straight NHL games before missing last night’s game against the Washington Capitals.

Voracek had his head down, picked it up for a split second to see the brick wall wearing #55 in red and white.
