Brayden Schenn netted a goal in a 3-2 shootout win over Ottawa.

Schenn has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has 23 goals and 50 points in 73 contests this season. This is the second straight campaign where he's reached the 50-point mark.

Steve Mason stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday.

Mason has now won three straight, and is the first goaltender in Flyers history to start in 50+ games in four straight seasons with the team. He has also faced the most shootout attempts of any other goaltender in the NHL this season, stopping over 78% of them. The win improves his record to 24-21-7 on the year with a 2.70 goals against average and .907 save percentage. It will be interesting to see what kind of deal the inconsistent Mason will land at the conclusion of the season.

Jordan Weal scored his 6th goal of the year and then again in the shootout to give the Flyers a 3-2 win over the Senators on Tuesday.

Weal stole Craig Anderson's clearing attempt before putting the puck into an empty net to tie the game with just under six minutes remaining in regulation. Weal has been one of the better forwards for the Flyers over the last couple of weeks, picking up three goals and four points in his last six games. With the Flyers having an outside shot at the playoffs, Weal is taking advantage of time spent alongside Giroux and trying to clamp down on a roster spot heading into next season. He might be worth looking into next season in deeper leagues.

Nick Schultz and Roman Lyubimov will be scratched against the Senators on Tuesday.

Schultz has posted four points along with 36 hits and 48 blocks in just two dozen games played this season. Lyubimov has picked up five points with little else in his 46 games of action thus far.

Per coach Dave Hakstol, Nick Cousins has "no timetable for return."

Well that's disappointing. Cousins has been out for nearly two weeks with an upper body injury. It appears more than likely that his 2016-17 campaign has ended with six goals and 16 points in 59 games for the Flyers.
Mar 28 - 6:15 PM

Steve Mason will be in net against the Senators on Tuesday.

Mason is arguably rocking the best month of his season thus far. Coming in he's posted a 6-4-1 record with a .918 save percentage and a 2.32 GAA, plus a shutout to boot.
Mar 28 - 5:38 PM

Valtteri Filppula put an end to his 11-game goalless drought in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Penguins.

Filppula's second-period goal allowed the Flyers to jump ahead 2-1 in the game and they never looked back. He has nine goals and 29 assists in 72 games this season. He doesn't need to be owned in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 27 - 10:36 AM

Dale Weise scored in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

After scoring just twice in his first 50 games of the season, Weise has now found the back of the net three times in his last seven contests. The Flyers forward has just 10 points in 57 games, which means he isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 27 - 10:33 AM

Jordan Weal picked up a goal and an assist in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Weal tied the game at one with less than one minute remaining in the first period and he also helped set up Valtteri Filppula's go-ahead goal (2-1) in the second frame. Weal finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 13:06 of ice time. The Flyers forward has five goals and two assists in 17 games. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar. "Weal continues to impress," said goalie Steve Mason after the win. "He's like a little water bug out there. He just moves, moves, moves _ and it's tough to contain him."
Mar 27 - 10:30 AM

Steve Mason made 25 saves on 27 shots in a 6-2 drubbing over the Penguins on Sunday night.

Mason has now won two straight and three of his last four. He improves to 23-21-7 this season with a 2.72 goals against average and .906 save percentage.
Mar 26 - 11:02 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere notched a goal and an assist in a 6-2 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

The Ghost now has seven goals and 33 points in 69 games this season. It snaps a five game pointless drought, Gostisbehere also picked up two penalty minutes and five shots in the game.
Mar 26 - 10:53 PM

Nick Schultz will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Michael Del Zotto will take his spot in the lineup. Schultz has four assists in 24 games this season. Roman Lyubimov will also watch the game from the press box.
Mar 26 - 6:51 PM

Steve Mason is projected to start for the Flyers Sunday night.

Mason got Saturday's game off, but the Flyers have been leaning heavily on him lately. He has a 2.73 GAA and .906 save percentage in 53 contests this season.
Mar 26 - 6:19 PM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 20 of 21 shots in a 1-0 loss to Columbus.

Neuvirth has now dropped his last four decisions, although this is a particularly tough loss to swallow. He has a 10-11-1 record with the Flyers this season.
Mar 25 - 4:59 PM

Travis Konecny fired a team-high five shots in a 1-0 loss to Columbus on Saturday.

Philadelphia out shot Columbus 36-21, but it didn't matter. The Flyers are now 34-32-8 as they continue to fade from the playoff race.
