Mason stops 37 shots in 1st start, Flyers even series at 2 with 2-1 win over Rangers

PHILADELPHIA - Steve Mason stopped 37 shots in his first start of the series, Matt Read and Jakub Voracek scored and the Philadelphia Flyers evened the first-round matchup with a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers in Game 4 on Friday night.

Ray Emery started the first three games for Mason, who was out with an upper-body injury. Mason played the final 7:15 in a 4-1 loss Tuesday night.

Mason was just getting warmed up. He played perhaps his best game of the season, shutting down a Rangers team that pressured him with shots all game. He was a wall in the final tense minutes when the Rangers pulled goalie Henrik Lundqvist for the extra attacker.

Dominic Moore scored for the Rangers.

Game 5 is Sunday at Madison Square Garden.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
