Mason to start in goal for Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers announced Steve Mason will make his first start in goal for the team Tuesday when it faces the New York Islanders.

Mason, acquired at the NHL Trade Deadline in exchange for Michael Leighton and a 2015 draft pick, made his Flyers debut Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets in relief of Ilya Bryzgalov. Mason stopped all nine shots he faced in the third period of the Flyers' 4-1 loss.

It will be Mason's first start since March 29, his second since March 1.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
