Flyers' Mason questionable for practice Tuesday

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren declined to comment Monday when asked by the Philadelphia Inquirer if it could be ruled out that goaltender Steve Mason sustained a concussion when he was injured Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Steve Mason
Goalie - PHI
RECORD: 33-18-7
GAA: 2.50 | SVP: 0.917
Holmgren said the Flyers will determine Tuesday if Mason can return to practice that day. The Flyers open the Eastern Conference First Round against the New York Rangers on Thursday (7 p.m. ET, CNBC, TSN) at Madison Square Garden.

Mason sustained an upper-body injury Saturday in a collision with Pittsburgh forward Jayson Megna with 3:33 left in the second period. Mason, who made 21 saves on 22 shots to that point, remained in net for the rest of the period but was replaced by Ray Emery to start the third. Mason was scratched from the lineup Sunday against the Carolina Hurricanes with an upper-body injury.

Murray skips Blue Jackets practice, will play Game 1

Columbus Blue Jackets rookie defenseman Ryan Murray was held out of practice Monday for a maintenance day but coach Todd Richards said Murray, recovered from a knee injury, will play in Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC) in the Eastern Conference First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Initially expected to miss the remainder of the regular season after having arthroscopic knee surgery in March, Murray returned April 4 and played in five games. He sat out the season finale Saturday against the Florida Panthers as a precaution. The No. 2 pick of the 2012 NHL Draft was hurt during Columbus' 2-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 3 and had surgery four days later.

Murray, 20, had four goals, 17 assists and a plus-4 rating in 66 regular-season games. He has one goal and a plus-2 rating in five games since returning.
