Steve Mason allowed five goals on 33 shots in Thursday's 6-5 win over Edmonton Oilers.

It wasn't Mason's best effort, but this one was just a wacky game. He's won six games in a row and he improved his overall record to 11-8-3 on the season. Mason will enter his next start with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage.

Jakub Voracek scored a goal and three assists in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

The Oilers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second period, but that's when the Flyers went to work. Voracek picked up an assist on Claude Giroux's go-ahead goal (3-2) at the 13:43 mark of the second frame. Voracek's goal in the third period made it 5-4 Edmonton, and his assists on goals by Giroux and Michael Raffl helped complete the comeback. Voracek now has 10 goals and 28 points in 29 games.

Michael Del Zotto will be scratched against the Oilers on Thursday night.

Surprising decision considering Del Zotto has three points over his last five games, including two goals. Through 13 games thus far, he's posted three goals and eight points with 28 blocks and 56 hits.
Dec 8 - 6:13 PM

Steve Mason will get his 12th start over the last 13 games on Thursday against Edmonton.

During his current run, which was instigated when Michal Neuvirth went down, Mason has gone 8-3-1 with 25 goals against and a .930 save percentage. Connor McDavid will certainly pose a challenge, but with those numbers Mason appears to be ready for the task.
Dec 8 - 5:55 PM

Radko Gudas will return on Thursday versus Edmonton.

He has missed the last three games because of the flu. Michael Del Zotto appears to be the odd-man out based on Wednesday's practice.
Dec 7 - 4:34 PM

Matt Read has been moved to injured reserve.

He isn't expected to return until January because of an oblique muscle pull. Read has six goals and 10 points in 27 games this season.
Dec 7 - 2:39 PM

Philadelphia has activated Boyd Gordon (upper body) from the injured list.

Gordon hasn't been in the lineup since Oct. 29 and he has one goal in eight games this campaign. He doesn't have any fantasy value, but he can kill penalties and win faceoffs.
Dec 7 - 2:37 PM

Ivan Provorov registered an assist in the Flyers' 3-2 win over Florida.

The rookie defenseman now has three goals and 12 points in 28 games this season. He ranks third in the rookie scoring race among blueliners, behind Brady Skjei and Zach Werenski.
Dec 7 - 9:39 AM

Jakub Voracek downed the Panthers with the overtime winner on Tuesday.

The goal, the ninth of his season, gives him points in five of his last six games. He's recorded seven points in that span as well. He's up to 24 points in 29 games as well.
Dec 6 - 11:29 PM

Claude Giroux recorded his second two-point game over his last four matches during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Panthers.

The Flyers' Captain's pair of points were both of the helping variety, giving him 18 helpers and 25 points in 28 games this season.
Dec 6 - 11:28 PM

Wayne Simmonds recorded his second straight two-goal game during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Panthers.

He has three power play markers in the span as well, meaning eight of his 15 goals have come on the man-advantage. In fact 13 of his 26 points have come in that fashion. That's pretty impressive to say the least.
Dec 6 - 11:25 PM

Steve Mason came to work during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Panthers.

He stopped 42 of 44 shots, including all three asked of him while on the penalty kill. The Flyers have won six straight now, with Mason taking five. This is the second time in the streak he's made as many stops as well. Mason is now 10-8-3 with a .908 save percentage and 2.71 GAA.
Dec 6 - 11:23 PM

Nick Schultz will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Panthers.

Schultz has suited up in nine games this season and he's accumulated three assists. Matt Read and Radko Gudas will miss the game because of injuries.
