Ray Emery, who is battling Steve Mason for the starting goalie job, will start for the Flyers Monday night when they play Washington in an exhibition game at the Wells Fargo Center.

Emery is coming off a spectacular season with the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks: a 17-1 record and 1.94 GAA.

Despite those gaudy numbers, Emery was No. 24 as ESPN ranked its top 25 goalies today.

As for Mason, he allowed three goals in half the game as the Flyers dropped their preseason opener to Toronto on Sunday, 4-3.
