Steve Mason led the NHL in five-on-five save percentage among goalies with at least 1,000 minutes last year.
In 51 games, Mason posted a .943 save percentage. However, a .846 save percentage while shorthanded did him no favors. Mason had a strong season with the Flyers, finishing with a 2.25 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. The five-on-five metric is a good way to measure a goalie’s ability, thus making us stronger believers in Mason moving forward, despite the 18-18-11 record. Jul 19 - 8:27 PM

Errors cursed Steve Mason and the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday as they fell 3-1 to the Ottawa Senators.

Mason sees a three-game winning streak end, finishing 2014-15 with an 18-18-11 record. His individual stats were excellent, so the Flyers may have finally found their go-to goalie. Now they just need to fix ... a lot of other things.
Apr 11 - 3:12 PM

Steve Mason made 36 saves during Tuesday's 5-4 last-second victory over the Islanders.

It wasn't Mason's prettiest game, as he had multiple two-goal leads, plus the Isles were able to tie it up with 28 ticks left. Off a set faceoff play, no less. But Brayden Schenn was able to squeak one by Jaroslav Halak with just 2.1 seconds to go, sealing the win. The win brings Mason's record up to 18-17-11 with a .928 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA this season.

Steve Mason will get the start against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Coming into the match, Mason owns a 17-17-11 record with a .929 save percentage and a 2.19 GAA in 49 games this season. In fact, he's allowed two or fewer goals over nine of his last 10 starts. Mason is 2-1-2 in six career starts versus the Islanders with a shutout and 16 combined goals against.
Apr 7 - 6:36 PM

Steve Mason is now second in save percentage and fourth overall in goals-against-average in the NHL.

Mason has a .929 save percentage and a 2.19 GAA so his pedestrian 17-17-11 record is an indication of the Flyers lack of scoring rather than his play. "It is a source of pride," Mason said of his peripheral stats. "It’s something a lot of people talk about in measuring a goaltender’s performance and I’ve just tried to maintain a level of play I can be proud of going into next season."
Apr 6 - 8:02 AM

Flyers goalie Steve Mason was outstanding Sunday, making 46 saves en route to a 4-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Philadelphia.

Mason was particularly strong early in the game, with two highlight-reel stops. He made a diving glove save on Penguins forward Craig Adams at 5:51 and then used his left pad as a flipper to make a save on Brandon Sutter from the slot at 12:46. With the victory, Mason evened his season record at 17-17-11. His goals-against average is 2.19 and he has a save percentage of .929. The Flyers, who are out of playoff contention, have won eight in a row against the Penguins dating back to last season.
Apr 5 - 4:25 PM

Steve Mason will be in goal for Philadelphia Sunday.

Ray Emery got the start Saturday so it's no surprise that Mason will be in net against the Penguins on Sunday. He is 16-17-11 with a 2.22 GAA and a .918 save percentage this season.
Apr 5 - 8:02 AM

Steve Mason will end up this season with only two road wins.

Ray Emery is slated to get the start on Saturday in the final road game of the season and unless Mason gets into the game, his road season is over. Mason was 2-12-6 on the road this season but his peripherals were okay as he had a 2.56 GAA and a .914 save percentage. He is 16-17-11 overall this season with a 2.22 GAA and a .928 save percentage.
Apr 4 - 8:58 AM

Goaltender Steve Mason turned in a gem as he and the Philadelphia Flyers downed the Penguins 4-1 in Pittsburgh Wednesday night.

Mason kicked away 24 Pittsburgh shots to improve his record to 16-17-11. He's allowed only four goals in his past three starts. His goals-against average has improved to 2.22. His save percentage is .928. And you know what? You could do worse than take Mason to be your goalie for a fantasy-league night in the very near future. He's hot.
Apr 1 - 11:01 PM

Steve Mason will be between the pipes Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.

Mason will face Marc-Andre Fleury and the Penguins for the first time this year Wednesday night. Wednesday’s game will also be Mason’s third straight start for the Flyers. He’s given up just three combined goals in his last two starts and carries a 15-17-11 record, 2.24 goals-against-average, and .927 save percentage in 47 games played this season.
Apr 1 - 5:10 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers keep leaving points on the table as they dropped a 3-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Steve Mason's record says it all: 15-17-11 despite a sparkling .927 save percentage. Mason ranks among the biggest reasons to feel more optimistic about Philly's future, especially since he's only 26.
Mar 28 - 4:54 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have not had a lot of success of late against the San Jose Sharks.

The Flyers are 1-10-3 with two ties in their last 16 matchups. Fortunately they do not play them a lot as ties have not been an NHL stat since the first lockout in 2004. The two teams tangle Saturday afternoon and while it has not been confirmed, look for Steve Mason to get the start for Philadelphia.
Mar 28 - 10:16 AM

Goalie Steve Mason, who missed a start last Saturday because of illness, returned to the Flyers' lineup Wednesday night and emerged with a nifty performance in a 4-1 upset win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Philadelphia.

Mason stopped 34 Chicago shots en route to his 15th victory of the season. The Hawks outshot the Flyers 35-33 in this one. Mason had lost two consecutive starts before his gem Wednesday. His record on the season is now 15-17-10 in 46 games. His goals-against average is a not-too-shabby 2.28 and his save percentage is also impressive at .925. He is not the best fantasy option in goal because his team loses more often than not. In one-day leagues, though, Mason may be worth using, especially against weaker opponents.
Mar 25 - 10:45 PM

Steve Mason will get the nod in net Wednesday night when the Flyers takes on the Blackhawks.

After getting the night off Saturday, Mason will be back at the helm Wednesday to take on the Blackhawks. Mason has lost two straight starts dropping his record to 14-17-10 in 45 games played overall this season. He has respectable peripherals however, with a 2.28 goals-against-average and .925 save percentage.
Mar 25 - 5:09 PM

Updating a previous report, Steve Mason was not on the bench to start Saturday’s game because he felt ill during warmups.

However, Mason was back on the bench at the start of the second period, so that’s a good sign. And at least he is not injured. Mason was expected to start against the Oilers, but Ray Mason got called upon instead. Mason has a 2.28 goals-against average and .925 save percentage this season.
