Mason says he won't dress for the game and his status for the series remains iffy because of an upper-body injury. Mason shared practice time with Emery on Monday.
Emery was excellent in Sunday's 4-2 comeback win at Madison Square Garden that tied the best-of-seven, first-round series at 1-1.
Emery made 31 saves in Game 2 to win his first post-season game anywhere in exactly three years for Anaheim at Nashville. Mason hasn't played since he was injured in a collision in the next-to-last game of the regular season on April 12.
I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
