Steve Mason

Mason, Flyers Can't Deny Senators On Saturday

News: Steve Mason stopped 19 of 22 shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Senators.
Analysis: Steve Mason was uncharacteristically sloppy in the finale, allowing a pair of soft goals to aid a Senators squad that already had plenty of motivation with a playoff spot hanging in the balance. Though he's finish the season with a decidedly mediocre 18-18-11 record, Mason's 2.25 GAA and .928 save percentage illustrate that he was better than a league-average twinetender. With a little more support from his mates next season, Mason's winning percentage might reflect his abilities.

Steve Mason, G, PHI Flyers Turn To Mason In Season Finale

Steve Mason

Flyers Turn To Mason In Season Finale

News: Steve Mason will be between the pipes for Saturday's season finale against the Senators, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports.
Analysis: With the Senators needing a victory to earn a spot in the postseason, Steve Mason will attempt to play spoiler, just as he's done against playoff-contending teams in the Islanders and Penguins his last two times out. With a 2.23 GAA, .928 save percentage, and a 18-17-11 record that has been boosted by his ongoing three-game winning streak, Mason might be the Flyers' MVP this season, more than validating the team's decision to give him a three-year, $12.3 million extension last January. He's worth rolling in the season finale.

Steve Mason, G, PHI Mason, Flyers Hold Off Isles

Steve Mason

Mason, Flyers Hold Off Isles

News: Steve Mason gave up four goals on 40 shots Tuesday, but held on for a 5-4 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Steve Mason blew a 4-1 third-period lead, but was bailed out by a late Brayden Schenn goal. Still, considering the barrage of shots he faced, it's hard to knock Mason's stat line, especially when he came away with the win -- his third in a row. He's on a run of five straight games with a .900 save percentage or better, so Mason's looked strong end to end (when healthy) despite playing behind a poor Flyers team.

Steve Mason, G, PHI Flyers' Mason In Goal Tuesday

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason In Goal Tuesday

News: Steve Mason will be in the crease for Tuesday's game against the Islanders, NHL.com's Bill Meltzer reports.
Analysis: Though the Flyers are long past removed from playoff contention, Steve Mason's hot finish to the season couldn't come at a better time for his fantasy owners. He's allowed only five combined goals over his last four starts, winning three of those contests and taking a shootout loss in the other. Coach Craig Berube still plans on giving backup goalie Ray Emery a turn in one of the Flyers' final two games of the season, leaving just one more outing on tap for Mason after Tuesday.

Steve Mason, G, PHI Flyers' Mason Superb In Win

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Superb In Win

News: Steve Mason turned aside 46 of 47 shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: It was an outstanding performance by Steve Mason, as the 46 saves matched a season-high. His mates were outshot 47-20 on the game, including a 22-4 advantage for the Penguins in the first period, but the Flyers were still able to come away with a comfortable three-goal win thanks to the 26-year-old. Mason improved his GAA and save percentage to 2.19 and .929 respectively with Sunday's effort, and figures to be a reliable option in the team's final few games.

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason To Face Penguins on Sunday

News: Steve Mason will start Sunday's game against the Penguins, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: With a back-to-back coming up this weekend, the Flyers will unsurprisingly save Steve Mason for a game against their hated rival. Mason stopped 24-of-25 shots to pick up the win in his last outing, which also came against the Penguins.

4/2/2015

Steve Mason, G, PHI Flyers' Mason Stops 24 In Win

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Stops 24 In Win

News: Steve Mason allowed one goal on 25 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Steve Mason was stellar once again Wednesday night, and was able to record his third straight game with a save percentage over .950. If the Flyers can manage to shore up their defense next season, Mason could be an elite fantasy netminder.

4/1/2015

Steve Mason, G, PHI

Steve Mason

Flyers Turn To Mason On Wednesday

News: Steve Mason is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Penguins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: While Steve Mason's 15-17-11 mark isn't stellar, he heads into Wednesday's action with a .927 save percentage, which gives him a chance to finish the season with the highest save percentage in franchise history, at least since the league officially started keeping the stat in 1982. Roman Cechmanek, who turned in a .925 save percentage in 2002-2003, currently holds the team mark on that front.

Flyers' Mason: 42 Saves Through Regulation

News: Steve Mason made a remarkable 42 saves in Saturday's shootout loss to San Jose.
Analysis: Not only did he stand on his head in regulation, but he forced the shootout to five rounds. He has quietly resurrected his career, although we'd like to see him stay healthy. But his 2.25 GAA and .926 save percentage heading into action Saturday are worthy numbers.

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Gets The Start Saturday

News: Steve Mason will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Sharks, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman reports.
Analysis: Steve Mason is coming off a brilliant turn against the Blackhawks on Wednesday, during which he stopped 34 of 35 shots to steal a win for the Flyers. Though his record remains below the .500 mark for the season, Mason has done his best to keep the squad competitive, churning out a 2.25 GAA and .926 save percentage over his 45 outings. He'll be opposed by Sharks backup goalie Alex Stalock on Saturday.

Steve Mason, G, PHI

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Allows One In Win

News: Steve Mason stopped 34 of the 35 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Steve Mason has played well for the struggling Flyers this season, though his 15-17-10 record may not show it. He currently has a save percentage of .926 and a GAA of 2.25, both of which rank in the top 10 in the NHL.

Flyers' Mason Back In Net Wednesday

News: Steve Mason (illness) will be in the net Wednesday against the Blackhawks, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The Flyers ended up making Steve Mason a late scratch for their last game Saturday against the Oilers after the goalie came down with an illness during warmups. Mason was able to remain on the bench as a backup to Ray Emery for the game, and with a few days to recover, it looks like he's now back to full health. He'll face a tall task in trying to slow down Jonathan Toews and the high-flying Blackhawks, but the netminder has been stellar at the Wells Fargo Center against just about any opponent this season. In 23 appearances (22 starts) at home this season, Mason is 13-5-4 with a 1.97 GAA and .936 save percentage.

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason (Illness) A Late Scratch

News: Steve Mason felt ill after warmups Saturday and was a late scratch, CSN Philadelphia's Tim Panaccio reports.
Analysis: Ray Emery got the start in net instead of Steve Mason on Saturday, but Mason was back on the bench for the start of the second period and the team says he will be fine moving forward.

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Aims To Solve Road Woes Saturday

News: Steve Mason will get the start in goal for Saturday's game in Edmonton, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Steve Mason's brutal road production -- he's 1-12-6 with a 2.64 GAA and .912 save percentage over 22 appearances -- has been his greatest downfall this season, but if there's one place where he can turn the tide, it's in Edmonton. The Oilers will get star winger Taylor Hall back from a long-term ankle injury Saturday, but the team is still woefully undermanned across the roster, as its 19-39-13 record would suggest. Mason's won't necessarily be a top-tier daily option Saturday, but those in season-long leagues can probably play him with confidence.

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason On Short Leash Thursday

News: Steve Mason was pulled from Thursday's loss to Calgary late in the second period after allowing two goals on 16 shots.
Analysis: A stunning early hook for Steve Mason -- sure, Calgary had scored twice on him in a span of less than two minutes, but that's not a lot of leash for a guy who's been one of the few bright spots for a brutal Philadelphia team. Especially when Ray Emery is the other option. Mason has just 14 wins in 45 games (42 starts), but you can hardly pin that on him -- he's got a .925 save percentage despite playing behind a team that's been well below average defensively (and offensively).

3/19/2015

Steve Mason, G, PHI

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Gets Nod Thursday

News: Steve Mason will be in the net for Thursday's game against the Flames, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Steve Mason probably deserves much credit for keeping the Flyers on the edge of the Eastern Conference playoff race, but he's been borderline unplayable this season on the road. He heads to the Saddledome on Thursday with a 1-11-6 record, 2.63 GAA, and .913 save percentage away from home. Unless you're in truly desperate need of goalie wins, it's probably wise to keep Mason on the bench Thursday.

Steve Mason

Flyers Go With Mason On Tuesday

News: Steve Mason is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Steve Mason -- who has allowed four goals over his last three starts -- will square off against Eddie Lack on Tuesday, with the Canucks heading into the contest having won three of their last four games.

3/17/2015

Steve Mason, G, PHI

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Makes 31 Stops In Loss

News: Steve Mason saved 31 of 34 shots, but was still stuck with his fifth loss in the last six starts Tuesday in Vancouver.
Analysis: Tough to pin all this losing on Steve Mason, who's posted at least a .912 save mark (that's Tuesday's stat) in four consecutive games. Outside of a seven-goal fiesta against the Wings on Saturday, Philadelphia's offense has been rather muted of late, scoring two or fewer goals in all five of the aforementioned losses.

Steve Mason, G, PHI

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Back In Win Column

News: Steve Mason got back in the win column Saturday, making 31 of 33 saves in a 7-2 dismantling of the visiting Red Wings.
Analysis: The victory snaps a four-game winless streak for Steve Mason, who has had some hard luck of late with a 35-save shutout overtime loss to St. Louis on March 12 and a 37-save regulation loss to Dallas in the game before that. It's hard to fathom that he has just 14 wins in 42 appearances this year -- especially with the great ratios (.926 save percentage, 2.25 GAA) he's put up -- but the team in front of him has been inconsistent all year. It's probably going to be too little, too late for Mason and the Broad Street Bullies to get back to the postseason, but that doesn't mean the 26-year-old can't provide value to owners down the stretch. If you're in need of a goalie, Mase is worth a look.

Steve Mason, G, PHI Flyers' Mason In Net Saturday

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason In Net Saturday

News: Steve Mason will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Morgan Phillips of Pro Hockey News reports.
Analysis: With the Flyers not holding a morning skate for Saturday's matinee tilt, an announcement on the starting goalie wasn't made available until warmups. Coach Craig Berube indicated early in the week a desire to get backup Ray Emery some work in the near future, so it's conceivable that Steve Mason could be rested for the second game of the Flyers' back-to-back set Sunday in Ottawa. The Flyers' playoff hopes have begun to fade during the Flyers' four-game losing streak, but it's through no fault of Mason, who has turned away 72 of 74 shots (.972 save percentage) over his last two turns.

Flyers' Mason Gets 35-Save Shutout, Loses Anyway

News: Steve Mason stopped all 35 shots he saw through 65 minutes Thursday in a 1-0 shootout win over the Flyers.
Analysis: He and Brian Elliott matched zeroes for 65 minutes, but Steve Mason allowed the first two shooters to score on him in the shootout; Elliott made both of his saves to end it quickly. It's the fourth straight defeat for Mason, who seems to be finally back to his normal form, but is held back by a bad Flyers squad.

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason To Get Nod Thursday

News: Steve Mason will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Blues, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Steve Mason has taken three losses in a row, but he stood on his head his last time out Tuesday against the Stars, stopping 37 of 39 shots in defeat. The losing streak has dropped Mason's record below .500 for the season, despite a sterling 2.32 GAA and .923 save percentage. He'll have a tough time getting back in the win column against a talent-laden Blues squad that ranks third in the Western Conference with 89 points.

Steve Mason

Flyers Roll With Mason On Tuesday

News: Steve Mason will be in the crease for Tuesday's game against the Stars, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman reports.
Analysis: Despite submitting a five-goal debacle against the low-scoring Devils on Sunday, Steve Mason will continue to receive starts with a heavy hand as the Flyers look to creep back into the Eastern Conference playoff race. Fantasy owners should probably likewise be willing to give Mason a mulligan for Sunday's dud, as he's otherwise been an above-average netminder when healthy this season. He ranks 10th and 12th in the NHL in save percentage (.922) and GAA (2.33), respectively.

Flyers' Mason Gets Little Help In Loss

News: Steve Mason made 37 saves Tuesday, but took a 2-1 loss to the Stars.
Analysis: A very strong outing for Steve Mason, but he didn't get much help from his teammates -- they got outshot 39-26. Although it's a nice recovery after Mason gave up five goals in Sunday's loss to New Jersey, he's still lost three in a row and six of his last eight decisions.

Steve Mason

Flyers Stick With Mason on Sunday

News: Steve Mason is slated to start Sunday's game against New Jersey, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Per the report, Steve Mason -- who was in goal for Saturday's overtime loss to the Bruins -- will square off against Keith Kinkaid, who is on track to give Cory Schneider a breather on Sunday.
