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.

Steve Mason has posted a .922 save percentage at 5-on-5 against Washington in Round 1 of the playoffs.

The Flyers will be facing elimination on Wednesday because the Capitals have lit up their penalty kill. Philadelphia has permitted eight power-play goals against in three games. Of course, your best penalty killer is often your goalie so Mason has to shoulder some of the blame.
Apr 19 - 5:28 PM

Steve Mason kicked out just 21 of 27 shots in a 6-1 loss to the Washington Capitals in Game 3 on Monday.

This wasn't a good game for Mason and there's no getting around that. At the same time, it needs to be pointed out that Washington had an unreal nine power-play opportunities and five of those goals were consequently scored with the man advantage. So while Mason might not have been great Monday night, his teammates certainly weren't doing him any favors.

Steve Mason will be in goal for the Flyers on Monday night against Washington in Game 3.

Coach Dave Hakstol called it an "easy decision" to stick with Mason. He did allow a 101-foot goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss, but he played very well for the Flyers in Game 1.
Apr 18 - 2:24 PM

Philadelphia Flyers coach Dave Hakstol implied that Steve Mason will be in net on Monday for Game 3.

And why wouldn't he be? Mason has been the bedrock of the Flyers' foundation this season, and there's no other netminder in the organization as good as him. He's their best option in net if they want to come back in the series from 2-0.
Apr 17 - 1:21 PM

Expect to see Steve Mason between the pipes on Monday.

Mason gave up a hellacious goal Saturday as Jason Chimera deflected the puck from his own side of center and somehow it eluded Mason 101 feet down the ice, into the net. Mason has been terrific down the stretch for the Flyers and his teammates in unison were very protective of the netminder as they all had his back. Look for Mason to turn things around as the series heads back to Philadelphia for Game 3.
Apr 17 - 9:30 AM

Steve Mason gave up four goals on 23 shots in the Flyers’ 4-1 loss to the Capitals in Game 2 on Saturday night.

Mason was beaten by two goals with the Flyers shorthanded. There’s no room for error in this series for Philadelphia. The Flyers need to stay out of the box. While Mason probably deserved better because he made some fantastic saves (one a full-splits variety), he also gave up one of the most embarrassing goals you’ll ever see — a 101-footer that Jason Chimera deflected that somehow squeaked through Mason's five-hole. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that we could see Michal Neuvirth in Game 3. Mason has given up six goals on 54 shots against.
Apr 16 - 10:09 PM

Steve Mason will be in net for the Flyers in Game 2 on Saturday night against the Capitals.

Mason turned away 29 of 31 shots in the Game 1 loss, but Washington had their way with Philadelphia in the series opener. Expect a better effort from the Flyers' skaters tonight.

Steve Mason pitched a decent effort on Thursday night but the Capitals beat Philadelphia in Game 1 of the series.

Mason made 29 saves on 31 shots, but the offense could not sustain much pressure, nor score, on Braden Holtby at the other end. The Capitals two goals came off a deflected point shot on the power play, then an odd-man rush late in the game off a giveaway. Mason played well enough to earn the start in Game 2.
Apr 14 - 10:27 PM

Steve Mason will get the start in Game 1 against Washington.

The 27-year-old finished the year with a 23-19-10 record in 2015-16. Mason has a 2-6-0 record with a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage in nine career postseason games.
Apr 14 - 6:37 PM

Steve Mason will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's season finale against the Islanders.

Mason turns in a season with a 23-19-10 record and a 2.51 GAA and .918 save percentage, and one big ol' playoff slot. Remember the last time the Flyers were the eight seed?
Apr 10 - 6:36 PM

Steve Mason led the Flyers to an improbable playoff berth by defeating the Penguins 3-1 on Saturday.

Mason turned away 18 of 19 shots, none of which came through special teams. It's unlikely that he'll play in Sunday's game as all 16 NHL playoff slots are now filled. Assuming he's finished, Mason turns in a season with a 23-19-10 record and a 2.51 GAA and .918 save percentage.
Apr 9 - 7:29 PM

Steve Mason will play against Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon.

After all, who else would be in Philadelphia's net in the season's most important game. However, Mason is winless in three games against the intrastate rivals, surrendering 12 goals on 117 shots in the process. Then again, all it takes is one clutch W.
Apr 9 - 1:32 PM

Steve Mason lost his third consecutive game on Thursday night, a very untimely slump for the Flyers.

Philadelphia has seen their playoff hopes take a huge hit this past week, and Mason needed to be better against the last-place Leafs on Thursday night. He falls to 22-19-10 this season with a 2.54 goals against average and .917 save percentage.
Apr 7 - 11:24 PM

Steve Mason will start against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

This will be his second start in two nights. He's coming off a 23-save performance in a 3-0 loss to the Red Wings on Wednesday. Mason has a 22-19-9 record with a 2.52 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage this season.
