News: Mason (upper body) has ruled himself out for Sunday's Game 2 against the Rangers, ESPN.com reports. Impact: Mason continues to recover from a head injury suffered a week ago. He took the ice for Saturday's practice but said he didn't feel right and will, thus, be unavailable for Game 2, meaning Ray Emery will make his second straight start.(RotoWire, )

News: Mason (upper body) could return for Sunday's Game 2 against the Rangers, TSN reports. Impact: After suffering a head injury last Saturday, Mason missed Thursday's 4-1 loss in Game 1. He practiced Friday and said he feels better, but an official determination has not been made regarding his status. "I felt pretty good for being on the ice for the first time in a couple of days. It was a good step," Mason said of Friday's practice. "I felt great movement-wise. It was a pretty controlled setting and it felt good." In Mason's absence Thursday, veteran Ray Emery made 32 saves. He's expected to be in goal if Mason is ruled out for Game 2.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 18, 2014
News: Mason (upper body) participated in Friday's practice, the Flyers' official Twitter account reports. Impact: Mason's injury forced him to miss Thursday's Game 1 loss to the Rangers, but considering his involvement in Friday's practice, Mason stands a decent chance at returning for Game 2 on Sunday. While Mason's playing status will have to be monitored as Sunday's game draws nearer, it's encouraging to hear he's back on the ice.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 17, 2014
News: Mason (upper body) could practice Saturday, which would give him a good chance to start Sunday's Game 2 against the Rangers, CSN Philadelphia's John Boruk reports. Impact: Mason missed Game 1, but he's apparently making progress and can now be considered questionable for Game 2. Ray Emery gave up four goals on 36 shots in Thursday's 4-1 series-opening loss.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 17, 2014
News: Mason (upper body) will meet the Flyers in New York on Friday, Mark Masters of TSN reports. Impact: Mason has already been ruled out for Game 1, but the news that he's traveling could make him a consideration for Game 2. Coach Craig Berube said Mason won't practice Friday, but it's evident that his condition is improving.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 16, 2014
News: Mason (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Rangers, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Impact: Mason won't make the trip to New York with the team, so there's a good chance Ray Emery will start each of the first two games of the team's first round series. Mason will likely take over the starting role upon his return, but we'll have to wait a couple days to find out when that will be.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 16, 2014
News: Mason (upper body) did not practice Wednesday, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Impact: Head coach Craig Berube said Tuesday that he expected to increase Mason's workload at Wednesday's practice, but Mason wasn't on the ice at all. Assuming he suffered a setback in his recovery, backup Ray Emery is expected to get the call between the pipes for Thursday's Game 1.(RotoWire, )

Tue. Apr 15, 2014
News: Mason (upper body) was on the ice with the Flyers on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Coach Craig Berube has indicated that Mason will be ready for Game 1 of the Flyers' upcoming playoff series against the Rangers -- which begins on Thursday -- with the goalie's presence on the ice Tuesday supporting that notion.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Apr 13, 2014
News: Mason, who is out with an upper-body injury, showed more improvement Thursday and was in attendance for Game 1. Impact: Flyers coach Craig Berube said he doesn't know if Mason will play in Game 2 on Sunday.(STATS, 12:29pm)
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Mason will be in the crease for the Flyers on Saturday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Mason will look to get on a roll heading into the playoffs. The netminder made 38 saves on 40 shots in Tuesday's contest and will look to keep it going between the pipes on Saturday against the Penguins.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Flyers coach Craig Berube expects Mason (upper body) to be ready for the first game of the playoffs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Berube's optimism is a good sign, but he was speaking just hours after Mason suffered the injury, so it isn't safe to assume that the goaltender will be ready for the start of the first round. The Flyers are locked into a matchup with the Rangers, after beating the Pens in OT on Saturday.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Mason left Saturday's game due to an upper-body injury, and he will not return to the contest, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Mason got shaken up during the second period and didn't come back out for the third, but it's a good sign for the Flyers that he was able to finish that second period. Hopefully, more information will be available once Saturday's game is finished. He was productive while he was out there Saturday, stopping 21 of 22 shot attempts.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Mason is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Panthers, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Mason, who made 17 saves on 19 shots in a 5-2 win over the last-place Sabres on Sunday, will take aim Tuesday at a Florida team that is 29th overall in the league with 64 points to date.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Mason made 38 saves on 40 shots to deliver a playoff-spot-clinching win Tuesday in Florida. Impact: The stability Mason's offered the Flyers in net this year is perhaps the biggest factor in Philadelphia achieving a playoff berth, so it's no surprise to see him as the prime mover behind another victory. Mason has been rock-solid for the Flyers this year, including a current 11-game streak in which he hasn't allowed more than three goals in a game.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Mason made 17 saves in Sunday's 5-2 win over Buffalo. Impact: Mason is 6-2-1 with a 2.00 GAA over the last nine games.(STATS, 2:56pm)

Apr 6, 2014
News: Mason will be in the net Sunday against the Sabres, the South Jersey Courier-Post's Dave Isaac reports. Impact: Mason has taken tough losses his last two times out against the Bruins and Blue Jackets, but he looks like a fairly safe bet to get back on track against the league-worst Sabres. The netminder has enjoyed a productive first season in Philadelphia, posting a 31-18-7 record to accompany his 2.53 GAA and .916 save percentage.(RotoWire, )
