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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Steve Mason was not on the bench when the Flyers started their game with the Oilers.

As a result, Ray Emery got the start. The Flyers have not revealed any information as to why their top goalie was missing Saturday. Mason has a 2.28 goals-against average and .925 save percentage this season.
Mar 21 - 10:38 PM

Steve Mason is scheduled to get the start for Philadelphia against the Oilers in Edmonton Saturday night.

Mason is not enjoying a great season, though his numbers aren't terrible. He is 14-17-10 with a goals-against average of 2.28, a save percentage of .925 and three shutouts. The Flyers have lost three straight games and seven of their past eight. Saturday is the last of a four-game road trip in Canada.

Steve Mason didn't take being pulled on Thursday as a personal attack.

"Everybody has a job at stake here and we just try to do things to win hockey games. There's no animosity or anything like that between 'Chief' and I," said Mason referring to coach Craig Berube. "He's well within his right to take me out if he feels that it will help the momentum of the game or if he didn't like the goals. I think I've gotten pretty thick skin over the years. You can't let things affect you. I'm still going to come to the rink every day and work hard." Mason was yanked from Thursday's game against Calgary after he allowed two goals on 16 shots. He didn't see the second one through a screen and Berube made a somewhat questionable call to put in Ray Emery.
Mar 21 - 8:57 AM

Steve Mason will get the start against the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.

Mason comes in with a disappointing 14-16-4 record coupled with a .925 save percentage and a 2.27 GAA through 44 games this season. He also owns 24 Quality Starts against just four Really Bad Starts, an excellent ratio. In six starts versus Calgary since 2010, and just one with Philadelphia, he's 2-2-2 with 19 goals against.
Mar 19 - 6:11 PM

Steve Mason turned aside 31-of-34 shots but took the loss in a 4-1 Flyers' defeat to Vancouver on Tuesday.

Mason has just one win in his last five starts but has played well enough to get on the right side of the win column in four of those games where he stopped over 33 shots. His 14-16-10 record is more indicative of the Flyers' inability to win close games this season than a detractor to his play. Mason has a very solid 2.27 goals-against-average and .925 save percentage in 44 games.
Mar 18 - 1:33 AM

Steve Mason will get the start against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

Mason comes into the match owning a 14-15-9 record with a .926 save percentage and a 2.25 GAA through 43 games this season. He also boasts 24 Quality Starts against four Really Bad Starts this season. Mason has split his two starts versus Vancouver while with Philadelphia, allowing six goals against on 69 shots.
Mar 17 - 6:12 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers finally gave Steve Mason some goal support (a lot of it, in a 7-2 win against the Detroit Red Wings) on Saturday.

Mason ended a four-game losing streak that was largely out of his control in the process. He's now 14-15-10 with a .926 save percentage in 2014-15.
Mar 14 - 4:17 PM

Steve Mason has had more shutouts on the road than he has had wins.

Mason is 1-10-6 on the road this season with two shutouts. Neither shutout was the win as he has lost twice in a shootout without giving up a goal in regulation and overtime. That is a weird stat! He is 13-15-10 this season with a 2.26 GAA and a .925 save percentage.
Mar 14 - 9:29 AM

Steve Mason stopped all 35 Blues shots in regulation in a 1-0 shootout loss on Thursday.

Mason has three shutouts this season and amazingly Philadelphia has lost two of those contests. He now has a 13-15-10 record, 2.26 GAA, and .925 save percentage in 42 games this season.
