Steve Mason allowed three goals on 26 shots Tuesday as the Flyers dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to Calgary.
Mason had been exceptional in his two outings since returning from injury prior to this one, but his result on this night will leave him wanting more. The Flyers' number one netminder now possesses a 12-13-8 record, but his 2.27 GAA and .924 save percentage proves he deserves better. Mar 3 - 10:19 PM

Steve Mason will make the start against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

The Flyers come in trailing the Bruins by six points for the final Wild Card slot, with the Panthers in between. Meaning the Flyers need Mason to continue to play at his 2.25 GAA and .926 save percentage level through 36 games this season, and hopefully improve on his 12-13-7 record. This will be his first start against the Flames as a Flyer, and in his first dozen starts, Mason holds a 5-4-3 record with 34 goals against.
Mar 3 - 5:01 PM

Steve Mason set away 34 shots in the Flyers’ 4-2 win over the Rangers on Saturday night.

Mason was excellent, making a number of big-time saves from point-blank range. He gave up one in the first and one in the second. Mason has a 2.25 goals-against average and .926 save percentage this season.

Look for Steve Mason to make his first start of the season on Saturday since returning from knee surgery.

Mason actually played on Thursday as he relieved Rob Zepp in the game against Toronto. Mason comes into the game against the Rangers with a weak 11-13-7 record but his peripherals have been quite good as he has a 2.26 GAA and a .925 save percentage.

Steve Mason felt "a little rusty" in his return from a knee injury on Thursday.

Mason came into Thursday's game in relief of Rob Zepp. Mason ended up turning aside eight of nine shots in 32:24 minutes of ice time. "It was a really sound defensive effort tonight and me not getting shots, especially when you've been off for almost three weeks coming up … it was tough to get into the game, but got it out of the way," Mason said of his return.
Feb 27 - 11:31 AM

Steve Mason saw action in his first game back on the bench after Rob Zepp was yanked in Thursday's loss to Toronto.

Mason made eight saves on nine shots and was given the loss since the Flyers scored two late goals to make the final score 3-2. The Flyers are no doubt happy to have their starter back and healthy, as Mason owns a .925 save percentage and 2.26 goals against average.

Steve Mason (knee) has been taken off injured reserve.

He is expected to serve as Rob Zepp's backup on Thursday against Toronto. Mason hasn't played since Feb. 8 because of a knee injury, which required surgery. He will probably be back in the crease for Saturday's game against the New York Rangers.
Feb 26 - 2:24 PM

Steve Mason (knee) might serve as the Flyers' backup on Thursday, but it doesn't sound like he's 100% yet.

"Right now, I feel like I haven't skated in a couple weeks," Mason said. "So far, the knee's been feeling pretty solid for where we're at. I still want to feel a little bit sharper out there." Still, the Flyers are in an awkward situation and might resort to using Mason anyways. Fellow goaltender Ray Emery is also injured and the Flyers had to return Anthony Stolarz to the minors because he was only up on an emergency basis. Philadelphia can summon Stolarz again, but that would likely mean putting someone on waivers to make room for him as they've already used up their exemption that allowed them to temporarily exceed the 23-man roster limit. With that in mind, it looks like Mason will likely be on the bench Thursday.
Feb 26 - 9:56 AM

Steve Mason (knee) took part in Tuesday's morning skate.

Mason might be back on Thursday, but right now a Saturday return seems more probable. He has a 2.27 GAA and .925 save percentage in 34 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 24 - 2:43 PM

It looks like Steve Mason (knee) might not serve as the backup on Tuesday after all.

There were initial reports that Mason would make his return in that limited capacity after Ray Emery suffered a lower-body injury, but Flyers GM Ron Hextall has now suggested otherwise. Mason might still return on Thursday, although it's more likely that he'll play on Saturday.
Feb 23 - 6:45 PM

Steve Mason (knee) will return to the Flyers' lineup on Tuesday.

Mason is expected to serve as the backup in that game, but if all goes well, he'll probably start on Thursday. He hasn't played since Feb. 8 due to the ailment. Mason has a 2.27 GAA and .925 save percentage in 34 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 23 - 5:43 PM

Steve Mason (knee) may be back in the lineup next week.

"I plan on traveling with the team, and hopefully go to Carolina and Toronto," Mason said. "And who knows, maybe play in one of those games?" Next Thursday's game versus the Leafs could be a possibility for his return. Mason had surgery Feb. 10 to repair the torn meniscus and his recovery is on schedule.
Feb 19 - 5:34 PM

GM Ron Hextall said that Steve Mason had a fragment removed from his knee during surgery.

Hextall also stated that a previously undetected small tear in the meniscus was repaired when he underwent arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday. He is likely out another 10 days to two weeks so keep the netminder on reserve for now.
Feb 15 - 9:42 AM

Steve Mason had arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday.

GM Ron Hextall said Mason's right knee injury is not related to the one he suffered last month and there's no plans for the Flyers to shut down their top goaltender. Mason is still expected to miss two-to-three weeks.
Feb 12 - 4:28 PM

Steve Mason (lower body) is expected to miss the next two-to-three weeks.

Mason reportedly is dealing with a knee injury that led to arthroscopic surgery. While he's sidelined, Ray Emery is expected to get the lion's share of the Flyers' playing time, especially given that goaltender Rob Zepp is also hurt.
