Timmonen sat the past five games due to a back injury, snapping his streak of 248 consecutive games played.

"It's a tough thing," he said after the morning skate. "You don't want to miss games. I played 3 1/2 years not missing a game. I knew it was going to happen. I'm excited to be back."

He admitted the break helped him.

"Mentally, it's been great," Timonen said. "I played a lot of hockey the last four years. Obviously, the last 10 days I didn't do much. Mentally is was really good. Hopefully, it carries over."

Voracek missed three games with concussion symptoms.
