PHILADELPHIA -- Steve Mason may reclaim his role as starting goaltender when the Philadelphia Flyers host the New York Rangers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference First Round series at Wells Fargo Center.
Mason saw his first action of the series Tuesday when he entered Game 3 with 7:15 remaining in the third period after starter Ray Emery yielded his fourth goal in a 4-1 loss. It was his first appearance since sustaining an upper-body injury April 12 against the Pittsburgh Penguins when Pittsburgh forward Jayson Megna pushed Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald into the 25-year-old goalie.
The win gives the Rangers a 2-1 lead in this best-of-7 Stanley Cup Playoff series. Game 4 is Friday night (7 p.m. ET; RDS,TSN,CNBC,MSG,CSN-PH).
