Even though he did not face the Pittsburgh Penguins when he was with the Flyers at the end of last season, goalie Steve Mason is well-versed on the fierce rivalry.
The teams usually play wildly entertaining (read: high-scoring) games, and they will meet Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center.
"I've seen all the playoff series and the heated regular-season games that this organization has had against them," Mason said after Wednesday's practice in Voorhees. "I think you always want to measure yourself against the best players in the world, and they definitely have a couple of them and a great supporting cast. It's a game we should have no problem getting up for."
