TORONTO - If goalie Steve Mason is sidelined for an extended period, the Flyers' playoff chances will virtually disappear and the team may be in the lottery hunt for the right to draft Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel, centers regarded as future franchise cornerstones. And, so, yes, the Flyers' season depends on Mason's recovery from an apparent back injury. Mason did not accompany the team on the first two legs of its eight-city road trip - Saturday night in Toronto and Sunday in Winnipeg.

MICHAEL DEL ZOTTO was finishing a routine, three-on-three battle drill below the circles in practice yesterday with partner Carlo Colaiacovo. He fired a shot on Steve Mason and turned around to skate out of the zone so the next group could enter the drill. It never resumed. Everyone on the ice was gasping. Mason, the Flyers' backbone, was face-down on his stomach and unable to move with an apparently serious injury. Some players described it as "urgent. " Neither Del Zotto, nor Colaiacovo, or any other player on the ice bumped Mason.

CRAIG BERUBE finally seems willing to hit the reset button with Vinny Lecavalier, after the veteran forward spent 19 days and seven games stewing as a healthy scratch. Berube would not totally commit to the lineup change for tonight's seemingly must-win game against Florida, but the coach hinted at the possibility. Tonight is the Flyers' last home game in 2014 before an eight-game odyssey that could make or break their season. Lecavalier, 34, has not played since Nov. 29 against the Rangers.

BARRING A last-second move, the Flyers' roster will be the same today as it is through the holiday season - for better or for worse. That's because the NHL's roster freeze begins tonight at 11:59. Players are not permitted to be traded and minor league transactions are prohibited from today through the end of Dec. 27, with the exception of emergency condition recalls. The rule is designed to prevent disruption of families through the holidays. Some teams, like the Calgary Flames, implemented their own freeze a week earlier than the league-mandated blackout dates.

THE SUMMER workout began like any other in Brandon, Manitoba. Ryan White warmed up and stretched with his trainer, then started his routine. When it came time for the strength portion of his session, he piled the plates on the bench-press bar. He lifted the bar off the rack and pressed upward - a repetition he'd practiced thousands of times on his way to the NHL. "I was going for another rep and something happened," White said. "I knew I was in trouble. " White's left pectoral muscle exploded.

The spread of mumps around the NHL has concerned Flyers general manager Ron Hextall so much that some of his players have recently had vaccines. "We've addressed some things," Hextall said after the Flyers' win over New Jersey on Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center. "We've got it covered as much as we can. Clean buildings and wash your hands and vaccines and everything else you can do. We've done everything we can do to protect our players and our staff. " Two Devils - center Travis Zajac and defenseman Adam Larsson - missed Thursday's game with the mumps.

MARK SANCHEZ isn't known for his long passes but - when it comes to photos - he can bomb with the best of them. Yesterday, Trent Cole posted an Instagram photo showing he and Jason Peters getting IVs before tangling with the Seahawks. "Getting the fluids to full," wrote Cole. Sanchez, as you can see, decided it would be fun to crash the party. It's a shame he didn't show up for the game. In another tweet, Cole, an avid hunter, wrote: "QBs today and whitetails tomorrow.

LOS ANGELES - Vinny Lecavalier thought this would be over by now. The 405-goal scorer was never expecting to be a healthy scratch for the first time in his career. He was on Tuesday in San Jose, but figured he'd get a crack at redemption after that last-second loss. "I definitely thought after a game, I'd come back in," Lecavalier said. "I guess [coach Craig Berube] didn't want me back in the lineup. " After all, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Andrew MacDonald were given a game to get their heads straight and then were promptly reinserted.

LOS ANGELES - One of the worst starts in Flyers history has triggered various reactions from a divided fan base. While some fans aren't giving up on the season and think it's too early to dismiss a playoff run, others want the team to fall deeper into a hole and increase their chances of drafting Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel, centers considered to be franchise cornerstones. Some fans want general manager Ron Hextall to gut the roster, though there really isn't a lot of trade value at the moment among the Flyers' struggling veterans.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Flyers coach Craig Berube's job is not in jeopardy, first-year general manager Ron Hextall said after watching his team practice Friday in suburban Los Angeles. "I have no plans to replace the coach," Hextall said. The Flyers (8-13-4) have lost 10 of their last 11 games, including their last six, and they will take a nine-game (0-7-2) road losing streak into Saturday afternoon's game against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. "When you have a team going like we are, it's all of us," Hextall said, spreading the blame.
