Flyers' Steve Mason: Unable to save the day Tuesday
Mason came on in relief of a struggling Michal Neuvirth on Tuesday against the Blackhawks, but he struggled as well, coughing up a pair of goals on 11 shots and taking a loss.
One cannot place the blame solely on Mason (or Neuvirth for that matter), as the Flyers have a rather young defensive corps learning the nuances of a tough position. Still, Mason has allowed six goals on 46 shots between his opening-night start against the Coyotes last Saturday, and now this latest relief dud. Given the goalie platoon and the Flyers' struggling defense, it's best to look past Mason unless your league runs deep.
