Steve Mason is back in net for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Mason began the second period in the Flyers crease after Michal Neuvirth, who started Saturday’s game against Minnesota, left the game with an apparent injury.

Neuvirth was slow to get up off the ice after a sequence in front of Philly’s net in the first period.

Mason allowed six goals on 23 shots in Friday’s loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, as the Flyers collapsed in the final period, giving up four goals.
