Philadelphia Flyers: in search of a backup goaltender

The 2014-2015 season was an interesting season for the Philadelphia Flyers in net. On the one hand, the Flyers enjoyed a terrific performance from Steve Mason as the Flyers starting goaltender. Mason went 18-18-11 while posting a 2.25 GAA and a .928 save percentage (third among all goaltenders with 50 games played). However, Mason was injured a few times throughout the season, and...

Should Steve Mason Be Part of the Flyers' Dressing Room Leadership Group?

  During the Flyers' series of press conferences at the end of the 2014-15 season, Flyers right winger Jakub Voracek opened a can of worms when he stated that he strongly felt the team missed Kimmo Timonen from a leadership standpoint in the dressing room and that it created a void that was not filled this season. Much of the day was spent with the media asking players and since...

Mediocre goalies and world-beating play; or ‘Steve Mason for Vezina’ (Trending Topics) (Puck Daddy)

Let's just lead with the argument that no, Steve Mason probably isn't a very good goaltender. But the evidence to argue that point is mounting.  He started the week off right by beating the Penguins — and standing on his head to do it — as another lost-cause season in Philadelphia is winding down, and hey, at least they swept their bitter rivals. In that game, Mason was magnificent...

Postgame Perspective: Different role for Flyers in another win over Penguins

If the Flyers don't win another game this season, and fade away as a disappointing season, at least they will have Sunday's game against the Penguins to hang their hat on.

Flyers storm past Penguins, complete season sweep

Every time the Penguins fired a shot, Steve Mason was there to answer the call. Through 22 first-period shots, Mason made 21 saves, easily keeping the Flyers in the game. One save stood out, a glove save on Craig Adams robbing him on a rebound chance. It was arguably Mason's best save of the season.

Philadelphia Flyers weekly: Road losses plague chances

Dating back to last week, the Philadelphia Flyers have lost four straight games (all road games) during the time that they needed wins the most. The losses put the Flyers pretty much out of contention for any post-season play. Most of the season was spent playing catch-up to the Boston Bruins in the wild card race, but the Flyers have seemed to take themselves out of the conversation...
