Steve Mason had a night he’d like to forget, giving up four goals on eight shots in the Flyers’ 7-1 loss to the Panthers on Saturday night.

Mason hit the showers 6:46 into the first period. Don’t judge too much off of one performance this early in the season. Mason has been a well above average goaltender with the Flyers in the two-plus seasons he’s spent there. He posted a 2.25 GAA and .928 SV% last year. Michal Neuvirth made 19 of 22 saves.

Steve Mason was pulled from Saturday's game against the Panthers after giving up four goals on only eight shots.

Mason was pulled only 6:37 into the game. He made a horrible play on the Panthers' fourth goal, passing the puck directly to Vincent Trocheck who found Jussi Jokinen alone in front of the net. Michal Neuvirth is now in the game and has stopped all four shots he has faced.

Steve Mason will be in goal for the Flyers when they take on the Panthers Saturday night.

Mason is 7-2-1, with a 1.48 GAA, and a .953 SV% in his career vs. the Panthers. Given his great track record against the Panthers, Mason would be tough to leave on your bench tonight.
Oct 10 - 6:27 PM

Steve Mason made 29 saves on 32 shots in the Flyers' opener on Thursday night, but was beaten on a breakaway in 3-on-3 overtime for the winning goal.

Mason tuned in an adequate performance, but should be better as the year goes on if he can stay healthy. He begins 2015-16 with an 0-0-1 record, .906 save percentage and a goals against average slightly under three.
Oct 8 - 10:29 PM

Steve Mason will get the start in Philadelphia's regular season opener against Tampa Bay.

The 27-year-old will open the season with a tough test on the road against the defending Eastern Conference Champions. Mason has a career record of 1-3-1 with a 2.07 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage in five career games against the Lightning.
Oct 8 - 6:36 PM

Steve Mason stopped 29 of 31 shots in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to New Jersey.

Mason also stopped two of three shooters in the shootout. The 27-year-old had an underwhelming 18-18-11 record last season but his 2.25 goals-against-average and .928 save percentage were were more than respectable. Mason does tend to struggle with consistency throughout a long season, but he is the top dog on a team that should be better than they were one year ago.
Oct 2 - 10:39 PM

Steve Mason hopes to participate in at least 60 games this season.

"I don't want to put a specific number on it, but you look at the top tier of games played for goalies last year, they're in their 60s, and Braden Holtby had [73], which is a lot of hockey, but if I'm healthy and playing well, then obviously you want to be playing a lot," Mason said. He was pressed on the 60-game mark and added that if he's consistent and healthy, he doesn't see why he shouldn't hit that milestone. Mason has surpassed the 60-game mark twice and we wouldn't be shocked if he did it again this season.
Sep 17 - 11:41 AM

Steve Mason has been working with new goaltending coach Kim Dillabaugh over the summer.

"I was able to come in a little bit early and get a body of work and go out early on the ice with Kim, which has been great," Mason said. "Get a grasp as to how he works and have a routine going into training camp that we can put forward going into the regular season." Former Flyers goalie coach Jeff Reese helped Mason bounce back in 2014-15 and regain his confidence, but he took a job with Dallas in the off-season. Mason intends to approach the game the same way, but he's looking forward to building a relationship with Dillabaugh.
Sep 15 - 6:44 PM

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.
