There are just a few games for every team to play in until the regular season comes to an end and the playoffs begin. With that being said, every team will be putting up the best competition it is capable of to get those few remaining games and make it for the postseason. Same goes for the Philadelphia Flyers who have to win every game they have to play.
 
Flyers head coach Craig Berube knows that every game counts and loss is not an option. To win the game, he has to make sure that the opposing team, the Buffalo Sabres do not get a chance to get the puck in their net and the right man for the job is Flyers goalie Steve Mason.
 
On Saturday the Flyers faced the Boston Bruins, losing to them 5-2. Mason sat that match out and is now on the ice to make sure they don’t lose their game. On Thursday the Flyers faced the Columbus Blue Jackets and even though Mason gave a performance noteworthy of mentioning in which he allowed only 2 goals from 27 shots on target, the team failed to score from their end and they lost the match. Looks like that Mason will have to entirely rely on himself to make sure the match is a win win situation. They are on a 3 game losing streak and to break that someone will have to step up and do something.
 
Mason said that the team was hard at work during that match to find an opening but failed to do so. He added they didn’t have room to repeat errors.
 
“Guys were working hard, just couldn’t find the back of the net,” Mason said #. “These are big games and we’ve got to find ways to win them.”
