After opening the current homestand with an emotional win, their first in a shootout in over a year, the Flyers were dealt another injury scare. Lucky for them, it turned out to be nothing.
Steve Mason had an MRI on Wednesday, but will get the start in goal for the Flyers as they host the Washington Capitals at the official halfway point of the season on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center.
UPDATE (7:01 p.m.) - GM Ron Hextall announced that Steve Mason will skate on Thursday morning with the team as the Flyers prepare to face the Washington Capitals that night. Hextall would not rule Mason out for Thursday's game, a decision that will likely be made following the skate Thursday morning.
The player most responsible for the Flyers Tuesday night shootout win is facing another injury scare.
Mason took the ice for practice on Wednesday with Ray Emery several minutes prior to the official start of practice - as is the usual for goalies. But after about 15 minutes on the ice, Mason left as the rest of the team joined practice.
Mason did not return due to "soreness" according toHextall and will undergo an MRI later today.
