Steve Mason allowed five goals on 25 shots in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.
The Flyers went down 2-0 in the first period, but managed to battle back in the second period to tie the game. Unfortunately for Philadelphia, things kind of fell apart in the third frame as they allowed the Coyotes to score three goals. Wayne Simmonds cut Arizona's lead to 5-4 in the dying seconds of the third period, but that's as close as they would come. Mason now has a 2-4-1 record with a 3.16 goals-against-average and a .886 save percentage in 2016-17. Oct 27 - 11:17 PM

Mason played the final 29 minutes plus the shootout after Michal Neuvirth was pulled. The Flyers found themselves down 3-0 going into the third period, but the goaltending switch seemed to spark them. For now, it would seem like Mason is the Flyers go-to goalie, but that can change quickly. He has a 2-3-1 record with a 2.77 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season.

He's gone from an .818 in-game save percentage against Chicago, to the .938 mark he posted tonight. These are the performances that generally get wins, so stay patient.

This was Mason’s first win of the season after losing in regulation to the Ducks and Blackhawks. He also had overtime loss to the Coyotes. Mason had his best save percentage of the season, but it was still a modest .900 that will not exactly set fantasy players abuzz.

Advantage Michal Neuvirth? Steve Mason couldn't grab the win for the Philadelphia Flyers, who fell 4-3 in OT against the Arizona Coyotes.

The Flyers are one of a handful of teams who aren't stuck with a goalie in a long-term "anchor" contract, so they can play the hot hand between Neuvirth and Mason in 2016-17. Neuvirth won his first start while Mason (31 out of 35 saves) couldn't get the job done on Saturday.

Steve Mason will play between the pipes on Saturday.

In a bit of a surprise move though, Michal Neuvirth will get the start in Friday's season opener. This is as good an indication as any that Mason is no more the No. 1 goalie than Neuvirth is. They will likely be splitting the duties evenly unless one of them stands out.
Oct 14 - 2:53 PM

Steve Mason put forth a solid performance in Philadelphia's overtime loss to Boston in their pre-season finale on Saturday.

Mason turned away 22 of 23 shots through nearly two minutes of overtime, beaten only by an against-the-grain shot on a Ryan Spooner breakaway. While Michal Neuvirth always looms behind Mason, but so long as the former 2009 Calder Trophy plays well it's his crease.

Steve Mason was back in the fold after missing Thursday night's game to witness the birth of his first child.

Congratulations to Mason and his wife Brittany on the birth of Emma Rae. To celebrate Mason will start in goal Saturday against the Bruins. Mason is in a battle for playing time with Michal Neuvirth and may be in a job share situation to start the season.

Steve Mason is with his fiancé as she's scheduled to give birth to their first child.

The Flyers have called up Anthony Stolarz to give them an extra goalie while Mason is gone. Philadelphia has a preseason game against the New York Rangers set for Thursday night.

Michal Neuvirth and Steve Mason are expected to enter the 2016-17 campaign as competitors for the No. 1 job.

"I look at it more so as two guys who are going to continue to contribute to our wins," coach Dave Hakstol said. "I think we have two guys capable of being No. 1. . . .Yeah, there's going to be competition for who's going to be in the net. Both of these guys are proud, both guys are capable, and both are also really good teammates. It's going to be very competitive." Mason started 53 contests last season, but Neuvirth had the better season and was especially strong in the playoffs. Look for them to split the duties fairly evenly in October and from there we might start to see Hakstol lean more towards one or the other if there's been a clear distinction in their performances.
