Flyers’ Mason out of Game 2, Emery to start again

Philadelphia will have to make do once again without Steve Mason.

The Flyers announced Mason will miss Game 2 Sunday afternoon with the injury that kept him out of Game 1. Ray Emery will once again get the start as CSNPhilly.com’s Sarah Baicker shares.

“It’s all part of the process,” Mason said. “I think we’re doing everything that we can to make sure we’re treating it the proper way. As much as it’s frustrating, I think everybody understands it’s going to be a process.”

Mason practiced on Saturday morning but said the injury that has kept him out of action since getting hurt in the final game of the season against the Pittsburgh Penguins wasn’t feeling right. He’s aiming to return for Game 3 on Tuesday.

Cal Heeter will back up Emery for Game 2.

    That means more big FAT JUICY rebounds for the boys in blue !

      actually emery played pretty good in game 1. tried to keep his team in it until that 4 minute PP.
      (I’m a NYR fan btw)

      • barkar942 - Apr 19, 2014 at 7:50 PM

        Agreed. Those two PP goals were in even with Mason in the game.

    I didn’t expect to win the first two games anyway. Get him back for the home games and we will have to steal the last one. If not…everyone is off to the golf course.

    Well everyone except Giroux….

      Dude its frigin year after year after year after year after year after year after year I know there was a collision in the Pens game but come on. my spidy sense is telling me this is more of the playoff willies for Mason

    • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 2:42 PM

      Dude if you expected to lose the first two games you expected to lose the series now stop it !

    • therealtrenches - Apr 19, 2014 at 2:52 PM

      The only way the flyers have a hope of a chance of a prayer to win this series is if they take one of two from the Rangers in the Garden. They blew a good chance to do that on Tuesday night when they were staked to a lead. Now they’re playing on the heels of a really weak finish in a game that is as much of a must-win game as there can be while only being down 1-0.

      They haven’t matched up well with the Rangers at all in recent years.

      In the same way that the Flyers’ dominance of the Penguins must drive Penguins fans crazy, the Rangers recent dominance of the Flyers drives me nuts.

      • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 3:05 PM

        Yeah but at least Crosby shows up against the FLYERS !

  3. phillysports1 - Apr 19, 2014 at 3:04 PM

    I expect us to win period. We got this so lets go !

    It doesn’t matter who your goalie is when only get 15 shots on goal…..

  5. crazemastercraze - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:00 PM

    Get out the broom’s

    • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:38 PM

      Its not a broom piece but it aint looking good unless they win game 2

  6. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:04 PM

    Hi flyer fans!! Emery didn’t play bad in the first game. Flyers need to stick to hockey and stop with all the BS. It doesn’t work. Anyway your team will be on the golf course real soon. They suck. Go Rangers!!

    • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:42 PM

      What bs are you talking about it was a smallish flyer player trying to sepparate the puck in the neutral on a bigger player and he was out of control stick comes up and boom a chin and nose piece as great as the rangers are suppose to be they needed a double minor to go ahead on the score board your goon reterick is tired

    • whammy71 - Apr 19, 2014 at 8:45 PM

      Goon comment from a goon loving hockey fan. You and Filthadelphia are a match made in heaven.

      Better go get a Geno’s and wash it down with a Pat’s…..the have a Delasandros for dessert.

      Stick work is stick work….doesn’t matter who is bigger and who is smaller. Typical Cryer play and it cost his goon-squad of a team.

      • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:15 PM

        Tough one for the YOUNG man but it was deserved

      • broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:41 PM

        Oh look the dope just showed up. How you doing Mr. Pringles?

      • whammy71 - Apr 19, 2014 at 10:49 PM

        Hey BroadStreetMeatBeater……how the heck are ya!

        Pens made a mockery of the division in the reg season…..no need to get so involved this year.

        Glad you survived the God awful winter! Cheers!

      • whammy71 - Apr 19, 2014 at 10:52 PM

        And oh…MeatBeater….take this as the compliment it is…..I hope the Rags crush you guys…..cause this Pens fan doesn’t want to see the Cryers. Yinz are like kriptonite to the Pens.

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:54 PM

      And……cue the cheerleader.

  7. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    @billiam55. I know your a Rangers fan. I’ve seen some of your posts. Rangers win this series..

  8. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:44 PM

    Wake up Elmerbrown. That was unfortunate. If he didn’t fall no penalty occurs. It’s the slashing , chippy after the whistle stuff. The Rangers have been disciplined all yr. Heres some coffee so you can wake up.

    • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:57 PM

      What about the blatant crosscheck on Claude G by McDone that wast called

  9. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 4:48 PM

    How could you even think I was referring to the double minor. He fell stick came up. Elmerbrown he’s a clown……

    • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 5:00 PM

      Still needed 4 min of power play time to score I was 11 at the spectrum and watched Dave Schultz beat Dale Rollf to a pulp and watched rangers stand around and take it like champs 1940

      • whammy71 - Apr 19, 2014 at 8:49 PM

        Ha ha!!!!!! A Cryer fan is pulling out the 1940 comment for a Rags fan…..too bad they’ve won since then.

        1975!! Just remember, the only reason Filthy won Back to back Cups was cause they mugged their way to the top. No skill involved…..just assaulting the other team!

      • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:17 PM

        LET IT GO

  10. elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 5:02 PM

    If it wasnt for a lifetime Edmonton Oiler you still would not have a modern day cup 1940 1940 clap clap clap clap clap

  11. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 5:04 PM

    Don’t blame me for that…. That’s hockey. I hope you know that. All I’m saying is the Flyers tried repeatedly to get the Rangers to take dumb penalties. Play hockey. This isn’t the 70’s. No Shultz , Dale Rolfe here. I’m glad we are friends Elmer…

    • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 5:10 PM

      I did not see that at all,,, I think the Flyers know the Rangers are the team from Jersey Redux

  12. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 5:13 PM

    Elmer’s scared. Fact. You make me laugh.

    • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 19, 2014 at 5:35 PM

      Not scared at all THE BROAD STREET BULLIES are huge underdogs

  13. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 5:15 PM

    And the fact that you didn’t see it is because your used to it. It’s common way for the Flyers who are complete scumbags.

    • phillyphanatic77 - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:42 PM

      I’m sorry but you’re completely wrong… the Rangers were by far the more physical team. When the Flyers are successful they are hitting everything, they are winning tough puck battles, they are forechecking… they did none of that in game 1. The Rangers did. Just look at the NHL.com headline: “Rangers show physical side in game 1 win vs. Flyers”.

      It was expected that New Yorks speed would give the Flyers trouble but instead they beat Philly at their own game. You are incorrect in your assessment. But despite the Rangers dominance (especially at MSG) I don’t believe this series is over yet. The Flyers did EVERYTHING wrong in game 1… it’s hard to believe that that will keep happening, over and over against this club.

  14. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    Cast your safety net…:.

    • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:09 PM

      It’s only one game you sack

      We’ll see what happens tomorrow

  15. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:09 PM

    So you basically are admitting the Rangers are better. Change your name to elmerbrownunderdog….

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:50 PM

      You sound worse than a Pens fanboy. Your goalie is a perennial playoff bust. Lundqvist is like MAF except that Fleury actually won a cup before he became a playoff basket case.

  16. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:11 PM

    Hi lax!

    • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:21 PM

      Good evening

  17. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:11 PM

    Please show me your smarter than Elmer. Your first comment doesn’t show that…

    • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:27 PM

      I don’t claim to be smarter, your just running your mouth a bit too much after only one game.

      I think if they don’t find a way to get a win tomorrow The Ranger will take the series.

      I think your goal tending and Blueliners are stronger than what Philly has.

      Still believe that they are one to two years away from making a run but you never know.

      Better??

  18. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:39 PM

    Well I believe the Rangers are better. Also Elmerbrownunderdog has no clue. The flyers have played better than most the second half This year. They should stick to hockey. Why shouldn’t I be confident we beat the flyers? We own them at the garden. I feel how you feel when you play the pens. That’s all.

    • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 7:10 PM

      For now……..those days are numbered.

      Guarenf$ckingteed my friend

      Enjoy your moment for it will not last too terribly much longer sir.

  19. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 6:43 PM

    And every Pen fan is rooting for the Rangers.

    • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 7:11 PM

      Nah I’m sure there is at least one that really…..really……really hates the Blueshirts more than The Flyer

  20. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 7:31 PM

    Not sure what your an Lax. God bless. You need it

  21. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 7:36 PM

    Goodnight all. Thank you god I wasn’t born a flyers fan

    • laxman1944 - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:20 PM

      We’re quite thankful as well

      Peace

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 19, 2014 at 9:57 PM

      Thank the flying spaghetti monster that you were born with the IQ of a hockey puck.

  22. bleedrangerblue - Apr 19, 2014 at 10:59 PM

    Really a flyer fan insulting our goalie!?!? The flyers do not know what goaltending is. Just keep trading and trading … Every flyer fan would take Henrik.
