Steve Mason stopped 28 shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over Blues.

Mason was beaten just once on a two-on-one break as Jaden Schwartz caught Mason leaning the wrong way. Other than that, he was stellar all game long. The win brings his record up to 13-13-8 and improves his save percentage to .926 and GAA to 2.24.

Matt Read assisted on both of the Flyers' first two goals in their 3-1 win over the Blues on Thursday night.

They won't go down in highlight reel lore, but Read did much of the unsung grunt work that goes into creating goals. Simply, he won a long two-on-two battle in the corner before dishing out to Michael Del Zotto for his tying goal in the third period. And not two minutes later, he won a puck battle in his own zone and the neutral zone before leading the attack. Finding a streaking Mark Streit for the go-head tally by Wayne Simmonds. Read now has 20 assists and 26 points this season.

Wayne Simmonds tipped home the eventual game-winner in the Flyers' 3-1 win over the Blues on Thursday night.

Simmonds managed to do what he does so well, find the front of the net and put home the puck at a clutch time. Just 1:50 after Michael Del Zotto tied the game at one in the third period, Simmonds redirected a Mark Streit pass through traffic and behind Brian Elliott. The goal was his team-leading 26th, and team-leading sixth winner of the season. He also ranks third on the team with 44 points.

Michael Del Zotto scored his ninth of goal of the year, sparking the Flyers' late come-from-behind 3-1 win over the Blues on Thursday night.

After Matt Read dug the puck out of the left corner, he fed Del Zotto a pass with tons of time and space to work with. A look, a wind-up, and a laser through a maze of bodies, Del Zotto had tied the game at one midway into the third period. The goal was Del Zotto's second in three games, and his third point in the last four. Giving him 26 for the season.
Mar 5 - 10:21 PM

Vincent Lecavalier will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against St. Louis.

Nicklas Grossman is also scratched but he is missing the game due to injury. Lecavalier has just seven goals and 17 points in 46 games this season.

Mark Streit has scored five points in his last five contests coming into Thursday's game against St. Louis.

The 37-year-old has picked up points in three of those five games and is having a nice season in Philadelphia. Streit leads all Flyers' blueliners in goals, assists and points. He has nine goals and 41 points in 64 games this season. He's on pace to surpass the 50-point mark for the first time since 2008-09.
Mar 5 - 6:34 PM

Tyrell Goulbourne has been signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Flyers.

He has generated 17 goals and 21 assists in 56 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. Philadelphia picked him in the third round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Mar 4 - 4:13 PM

Sean Couturier had a goal in a 3-2 overtime loss to Calgary on Tuesday.

It was Couturier's first marker since Feb. 13. He has 13 goals and 29 points in 64 contests in 2014-15. The Flyers went into this season hoping to see Couturier contribute more offensively, but instead he's actually regressed a little compared to 2013-14 when he recorded 39 points in 82 contests.
Mar 4 - 9:26 AM

Mark Streit registered his ninth goal of the season on Tuesday night, but the Flyers dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to Calgary.

The veteran blueliner has continued his offensively-productive ways this season and has been one of the league's best performers with the man advantage, as was expected. Sean Couturier also scored for Philadelphia in the losing effort.
Mar 3 - 10:21 PM

Steve Mason allowed three goals on 26 shots Tuesday as the Flyers dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to Calgary.

Mason had been exceptional in his two outings since returning from injury prior to this one, but his result on this night will leave him wanting more. The Flyers' number one netminder now possesses a 12-13-8 record, but his 2.27 GAA and .924 save percentage proves he deserves better.
Mar 3 - 10:19 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo and Andrew MacDonald will pair together in their return to the Flyers' lineup on Tuesday night against Calgary.

While MacDonald was scratched for just one game, albeit against the NY Rangers, Colaiacovo has been scratched for the past eight games and has 15 games to his credit this season. Though they'll combine for the Flyers' third defensive unit, neither have produced enough value for fantasy purposes.

Nicklas Grossmann will not play on Tuesday night against the Calgary Flames due to an undisclosed upper body injury.

Through 53 games this season, Grossmann has compiled four goals, nine points, 16 PIMs, 71 blocks, and 97 hits. He is not expected to miss much time.
Mar 3 - 6:20 PM

Zac Rinaldo will be scratched against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Due to both a suspension and multiple scratches Rinaldo has seen just nine games in 2015, but has been an effective fantasy goon in that time with 55 PIMs and 40 hits. For the season, he has 92 PIMs and 140 hits in just 40 games.

Mar 3 - 6:17 PM

Steve Mason will make the start against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

The Flyers come in trailing the Bruins by six points for the final Wild Card slot, with the Panthers in between. Meaning the Flyers need Mason to continue to play at his 2.25 GAA and .926 save percentage level through 36 games this season, and hopefully improve on his 12-13-7 record. This will be his first start against the Flames as a Flyer, and in his first dozen starts, Mason holds a 5-4-3 record with 34 goals against.
