Mason took part in the entire morning skate after sitting out practice Wednesday because of what the Flyers called general soreness. The Flyers said Mason went for an MRI on Wednesday but would not specify what part of his body was being checked.
"He's fine," Flyers coach Craig Berube said Thursday. "Just more of a maintenance day than anything [Wednesday]. He's good."
Flyers goaltenders are not available for comment on game days, but Mason's teammates were happy to see him looking like his usual self.
"We didn't really know what we were dealing with," captain Claude Giroux said. "Steve is a big part of this team. If he's ready to go, that's awesome."
