Penguins forward Jayson Megna collided with Mason with 3:33 remaining in the second period. Mason took off his helmet, blocker and glove while he kneeled in the crease during a timeout.
He played the remainder of the second period before being replaced by Ray Emery to start the third. Emery stopped 12 of 14 shots in a 4-3 overtime win.
Flyers coach Craig Berube said he was not sure of the severity of Mason's injury but expects him to be prepared to start Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference First Round.
I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
