Steve Mason was yanked for the start of the third period of the Flyers’ 6-5 overtime win against the Stars on Saturday night.
Even though they won, the Flyers’ goaltending situation (and defensive-zone play) is going to be a real problem this season. Mason gave up four goals on 18 shots, and he now has a 3.78 goals-against average and .865 save percentage this season. Ray Emery faced only five shots in 22:49, allowing one goal. Oct 19 - 12:04 AM

Steve Mason and the Flyers continued to struggle Tuesday night as they dropped a 4-3 shootout decision to the Ducks.

Mason was beaten for three goals on 28 shots on this night and has thus far been unable to carry-forward the success he enjoyed last season. In three outings he stands with a 3.28 GAA and an .884 save percentage.

Steve Mason didn't bring his A-game in Thursday night's opener, surrendering five goals and an empty-netter to the Devils.

It was 3-0 New Jersey 26 minutes into the game before the Flyers would tie it back up before the second period ended. His mates would tie it up at four in the third, but Mason was just off all night long. Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come as he only saw 25 shots.

Steve Mason will be back in Philadelphia's crease Thursday after he started for the Flyers in Wednesday's regular season opener.

He stopped 31 of 33 shots in a 2-1 loss to Boston. Mason will face New Jersey in his second outing in two nights to begin the 2014-15 season.
Oct 9 - 2:39 PM

Philadelphia's Steve Mason turned in a stellar game in his first appearance of the regular season Wednesday night but was the losing goalie in Boston.

The Bruins got two goals past Mason in their 2-1 win but the goalie made 31 saves, some spectacular. He starts the season with a .939 save percentage.
Oct 8 - 10:23 PM

Steve Mason got the nod in goal for the Flyers in Tuesday's preseason contest, but was defeated by a score of 4-0.

Mason enjoyed a strong bounceback campaign in 2013-14 and enters the season as the clear-cut starter for the Flyers. He allowed four goals on 32 shots in this defeat, but that does little to inform how the regular season may play out for him.

Steve Mason would love to play in the All-Star game this season.

The game will be played in Columbus where Mason got his NHL start but struggled the last few years there after winning the Calder Trophy. He goes into camp as the Flyers undisputed number one netminder. "That's nothing that's crossed my mind, but it would be nice to go full circle," Mason said. "Philly is where I've kind of revived myself and learned to love the game again."

Steve Mason will enter training camp this season as the undisputed number one goaltender.

Mason came to camp last season in a battle with Ray Emery for the number one spot but quickly grabbed the reins and established himself as the top goalie in Philadelphia. He had a 33-18-7 record with a 2.50 GAA and a .917 save percentage so look for more of the same this season. Mason broke his pinky finger at the end of July but apparently is fully recovered and ready to go.

Steve Mason (finger) got back on the ice Monday for the first time in three weeks.

He suffered a broken pinky finger while playing ball hockey. It looks like Mason will be available for training camp, which is just a month away. We'll let you know if that changes.

Steve Mason suffered a broken pinky finger while playing ball hockey.

Mason will stay off the ice for the next two weeks, but he'll continue to work out off the ice. This shouldn't impact his fantasy value for the 2014-15 campaign.
Jul 31 - 7:35 PM

Former NHL-star-turned-broadcaster Jeremy Roenick does not believe the Flyers will win the Stanley Cup with Steve Mason in net.

"I like Steve Mason, but I don’t think [he] is the answer to winning a Stanley Cup," the former Flyer said in a radio interview. "I think you need an upper echelon defenseman, I think you need an upper echelon goaltender. Both, the Flyers do not have. I think that’s something that you’re going to have to look at in terms of improving your team." In his first full season with the Flyers, Mason posted a 33-18-7 record. The goalie also recorded a .917 save percentage, a 2.50 goals against average, and four shutouts in 61 games played.
Jul 20 - 9:43 AM

Philadelphia is hoping to be a more consistent team in 2014-15.

"I just think we tend to get away from our game too often," Steve Mason said. "We can play 20 minutes, 40 minutes of unbelievable hockey and completely control our game, but we tend to get away from that a period at a time. Come playoffs, if you're not going to gather a full 60 minutes, that's what's going to cost you." Mason added that the Flyers didn't put forth their full effort for an entire 60 minutes in any of their playoff games against the New York Rangers. That being said, the Flyers are upbeat upbeat about their chances for the 2014-15 campaign.
May 6 - 10:40 AM

With his stellar play in the playoffs, Steve Mason dispelled any doubts that he will be the Flyer starter next season.

The Flyers have a number of issues to address this off-season but starting goaltending isn't one of them as Mason was Philly's best player in the playoffs despite playing in only four of the seven games. He is 26 years old and entering his prime and seems to have rebounded from a number of uneven seasons after winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie six years ago. Mason should be a solid fantasy pick in 2014-15.
May 4 - 10:14 AM

Steve Mason's upper-body injury was a concussion.

Mason rejoined the Flyers on April 22. He went on to do a superb job in the playoffs, posting a 1.97 GAA and .939 save percentage in five games. The Flyers were eliminated by the Rangers on Wednesday, but Mason did everything he could to keep Philadelphia alive.
May 1 - 9:56 AM

Steve Mason did what he could to hold off the Rangers, but was saddled with a 2-1 loss in Game 7 of their opening round playoff series.

Mason stopped 31 of 33 shots in the defeat and was the primary reason the Flyers didn't trail by a larger margin heading into the third period. Though he was injured to begin the series, Mason posted a 1.97 GAA and .939 save percentage in his four starts, holding up his end of the bargain.
