Steve Mason allows historically bad goal after making split save
If you think you’ve suffered through a rough stretch on Saturday, try Steve Mason on for size.
In the span of mere moments, the Philadelphia Flyers goalie made a borderline inhuman split save that left him slowly getting to his feet ... and then he allowed one of the worst goals you’ll ever see.
You can label it as any number of things, including “Adding insult to injury.”
The 2-0 goal is the sort that could really hurt your confidence:
People are legitimately stunned by how bad it was.
Easy entry for the NHL Playoff Roundup. Worst goal ever allowed -- Steve Mason, Philadelphia Flyers.— Craig Morgan (@CraigSMorgan) April 17, 2016
Now, how much does that goal have to do with that painful moment that came before it? One can debate that both ways, but the bottom line is that the Flyers are down after dominating the first period.
The good news: Jakub Voracek finally beat Braden Holtby, so Philly’s only down 2-1.
