For the fourth time in five games, Steve Mason will get the start in goal for the Flyers in tonight’s game against the Phoenix Coyotes at the Wells Fargo Center.
Mason has a 2.02 goals against average and a .935 save percentage. He made 33 saves during Tuesday’s 2-1 win over the visiting Florida Panthers in coach Craig Berube’s debut. That stopped the Flyers opening three-game losing streak.
“He has been solid like all training camp I liked him,” Berube said after this morning’s optional skate at the Wells Fargo Center. “He has looked really big in net, puck’s active, handling the puck well and challenging at the right times and has looked really good for me.”
The Flyers play in Detroit on Saturday at 7 p.m. and Berube was asked if he would go with Ray Emery in goal since it is the second of a back to back.
