Just hours after getting a contract extension, Steve Mason left the ice following the fourth goal allowed by the Philadelphia Flyers. Mason was hardly at fault for the deficit the team was facing.
Craig Berube had to send a message. The Flyers were not playing up to his standards in front of the goalie that bailed them out so much. The New York Islanders were controlling the game.
That led to an energized third period. After replacing Mason, Ray Emery faced just five shots. The Flyers fired 14 on the Islanders net in the final 20 minutes. Three goals helped the Flyers erase the deficit and give them their ninth comeback win of the season, tying a franchise record, in a 6-4 final from Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night.
