PITTSBURGH -- Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason sustained an upper-body injury against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday and did not return to start the third period.

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.

Mason stopped 21 of 22 shots through two periods.

I didn't even know how to celebrate. I threw my hands up, they gave me a hug, so I guess that's all I needed.
