The Columbus Blue Jackets are giving struggling netminder Steve Mason another chance.Mason will get the start Saturday as the Blue Jackets face the Flyers in Philadelphia. Columbus comes into the game saddled with the NHL's worst record at 2-10-1.Mason, 23, has been a big reason for the club's slide to the league basement. After winning the Calder Trophy in 2009, Mason has been mostly terrible since.He's just 2-9-1 this season with a 3.36 goals-against average, and had the worst start of his career Thursday night as he surrendered four goals on 11 shots in a one-sided loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs."I know most people would probably say ‘give it to the kid,’ but that’s
the first time ... where Mase has really been responsible for a
loss," head coach Scott Arniel said following the Toronto game.Backup Allen York will see action if Mason stumbles again.
