Mason, who has not played since Jan. 10 because of a lower-body injury, took part in the morning skate Tuesday at Wells Fargo Center and said it's the best he's felt since getting hurt, and that even takes into account an illness that kept him from practicing Monday.
"Today was the best workout I've had since the injury," Mason said, according to the Flyers website. "Felt really good today. Been sick the past couple days, so the wind wasn't there, but overall I felt really good."
In Mason's absence, Ray Emery and Rob Zepp have split time in goal. Emery, who will start Tuesday, is coming off one of his best performances of the season, a 33-save win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Jan. 20.
