Goalie Steve Mason has never lost in regulation to the New York Rangers, and the Flyers hope that streak continues when the teams meet in a second-place showdown Wednesday in Madison Square Garden.
"It's exciting being part of the playoff push; it's been a while for myself," Mason said after Tuesday's practice in Voorhees.
Mason, 25, has not been in the playoffs since his rookie-of-the-year season with Columbus in 2008-09. He said the "meaningful games we're having right now are what makes hockey fun. We've put ourselves in a good spot, but you can't be taking games off like we did [Monday]. You have to keep pushing forward."
