A little luck and a lot of excellent work by goalie Steve Mason. That combination enabled the Flyers to make Craig Berube's head coaching debut a success, a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Mason, in his best performance of the young season, made 33 saves as the Flyers (1-3) avoided their first 0-4 start in franchise history. "He made some key stops," winger Brayden Schenn said, "or it could have been a different hockey game. " First-period goals by Schenn and Braydon Coburn gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead until Brad Boyes scored on a rebound with 6.7 seconds left in the second period.

It's Nick Foles' turn to start as Eagles quarterback. Michael Vick started the preseason opener, and even though Foles took more snaps it was Vick's opening drive that served as the first punch in the quarterback competition. Entering the second preseason game, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday against the Carolina Panthers at Lincoln Financial Field, Foles will get the first chance to make a statement. The two quarterbacks will split snaps and likely play through the second quarter. Vick's performance last week raised the stakes in the competition.
