Steve Mason's outlook from his upper-body injury is positive.
He isn't expected to be out of action for long and could be back in the crease as early as Monday night against Arizona. GM Ron Hextall said Mason won't play Saturday in Nashville, but he will travel with the team. "He'll start off slowly on the trip and progress," Hextall said. "The timeline is that hopefully he skates in Nashville, and we'll go from there and see how it feels." Dec 23 - 1:36 PM

It's viewed as unlikely that Steve Mason (upper body) will be ready for Tuesday's match against Minnesota.

The Flyers have not provided a timetable for his return and Mason's scheduled visit with a doctor on Monday had to be changed for an unknown reason. Therefore, there was no update on the netminder's status. "I'm optimistic it won't be long," GM Ron Hextall said Saturday. "Until you get the information, you don't know for sure. I don't anticipate it being a long time but it could change."

Steve Mason won't play on Saturday or Sunday due to an upper-body injury.

The ailment is likely related to Mason's back. Flyers GM Ron Hextall said that the Flyers will provide an additional update on Monday. It seems reasonable to believe that Ray Emery will start in at least one, if not both, of Philadelphia's weekend games, but that's just speculation at this point.
Dec 19 - 5:10 PM

Steve Mason (undisclosed) didn't travel with the Flyers to Toronto.

Mason might have hurt his back during Friday's practice. He probably won't rejoin the Flyers in time for Saturday's game, but beyond that the extent of his injury isn't known yet. If he can't play, the Flyers will probably lean on Ray Emery.
Dec 19 - 4:56 PM

Steve Mason left Friday's practice due to an injury.

There was some speculation among the Flyers players that Mason might have had a back spasm, but there's been no confirmation of that. For now we can't say for certain that Mason will miss any playing time, but if he's not available on Saturday then Ray Emery will probably get the start.
Dec 19 - 1:10 PM

Steve Mason was beaten just once in regulation on 32 shots from the Panthers, but allowed two goals in the shootout on Thursday night to take a 2-1 loss to Florida.

Mason falls to 6-10-5 this season with a .921 save percentage and 2.49 goals against average. In Mason's past 13 games, he has allowed more than three goals only twice, yet has just three victories in that span. The Flyers need to help out their goaltender more. Mason made 31 saves in Thursday's loss.
Dec 18 - 10:54 PM

Steve Mason was beaten for two goals on 22 shots on Tuesday as he and the Flyers suffered a 3-1 defeat to the Lightning.

The Flyers number one netminder can usually point to his teammates as the main reason for his struggles, but that wasn't the case tonight as Tampa Bay managed a relatively low shot total. His record falls to 6-10-4 with the loss while he possesses a 2.58 GAA and .918 save percentage.
Dec 16 - 9:55 PM

Steve Mason will get the nod Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Miraculously, the Flyers sit just five points behind the New York Rangers for the second Wild Card slot coming into tonight's game. A win over the best offense in hockey could go a long way towards toppling a rival and into the playoff picture.
Dec 16 - 5:24 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Saturday, as Steve Mason stopped 25 out of 26 shots.

Mason's record is now 6-9-4 with a .918 save percentage and 2.60 this season. While his record has been great, Mason's been solid so far.
Dec 13 - 3:50 PM

Look for Steve Mason to get the start in goal for Philadelphia on Saturday.

While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, it looks like it's Mason's turn. He is 5-9-4 this season with a 2.69 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
Dec 13 - 9:46 AM

Steve Mason wasn't at his best Tuesday as he allowed three goals on 24 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to Columbus.

Mason hasn't been quite as good this year as he performed last season, but he definitely hasn't been the primary reason for the Flyers' struggles in their own end. His 5-9-4 record is accompanied by a 2.69 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
Dec 9 - 10:16 PM

Steve Mason is expected to start in Columbus on Tuesday.

Mason spent parts of five seasons with Columbus before he was shipped to Philadelphia. At this point though, he's moved on from that chapter of his life. This will be his fifth career game against the Blue Jackets. He has a 3.06 GAA and .897 save percentage against them.
Dec 9 - 1:40 PM

Steve Mason had a great game against the Los Angeles Kings, as the Philadelphia Flyers squeezed out a 2-1 victory on Saturday.

Mason stopped 37 out of 38 shots to improve his record to 5-9-3 on the season. That's an unsightly mark, yet with a totally acceptable .918 save percentage, it's pretty clear that goaltending isn't the issue this time around for Philly.
Dec 6 - 6:53 PM

Steve Mason stopped 29 of 33 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 shootout loss to Anaheim.

The Flyers were up 3-1 in the second period, before the Ducks scored three unanswered goals to take the lead. Philadelphia forward Wayne Simmonds forced overtime after he beat Ducks' goaltender Frederik Andersen with three seconds remaining in regulation. Mason's record falls to 4-9-3 this season.
Dec 4 - 1:36 AM

Steve Mason will be the starting goalie for the Flyers Wednesday night versus the Anaheim Ducks.

Mason just started Tuesday night for the Flyers, but will be right back in action Wednesday to take on the Ducks in Anaheim. The Flyers have dropped five straight so Mason will have his hands full trying to get them back in the win column against a fiercely competitive Ducks team.
