Surprise! The loss of Mason hurts the Flyers, Emery stinks

Steve Mason, who was injured over the weekend, will not start game 1 of the series versus the Flyers. His availability for game 2 and the rest of the series is unclear.

Flyers' Emery will start vs. Tampa, but no goalie controversy

Do not read into anything just because goalie Ray Emery may start two of the season’s final three games for the Flyers, coach Craig Berube said. Steve Mason, who has been the No. 1 goalie all season, will be his primary netminder in the playoffs. Berube is going with Emery on Thursday night in Tampa Bay.

How the Philadelphia Flyers screw their goalies

On January 18th Steve Mason signed a contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers that will net him $12.3 million over the next three seasons. It’s pretty good money, and Mason has earned it. He came into this season with high expectations. He came into the Flyers organization looking like a solid backup to Ilya Bryzgalov. But his stellar play at the end of last season gave...
