Steve Mason

Flyers give Steve Mason the start against Devils

The Philadelphia Flyers will start goalie Steve Mason against the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

What It Means:

The Devils and Flyers have both been eliminated from the playoffs. Mason is getting an extended chance to build a starting resumé for next year -- though he is an unrestricted free agent and may end up outside of Philly. Over his last 14 games, Mason has improved to a .926 save percentage and 2.17 goals-allowed average.

numberFire's models project Mason to stop 24.5 shots tonight and allow 2.2 goals while giving him a 58.0 percent chance to earn the win. He is our 11th-best fantasy tender out of the 26 starting goalies available.
