WASHINGTON - An injury to Steve Mason - who has been playing as well as any NHL goalie recently - overshadowed the Flyers' gritty 3-1 win over the Washington Capitals Sunday at the Verizon Center. Mason will be out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury and will be examined by a doctor in Philadelphia on Monday. He did not accompany the team to Montreal and probably won't join the Flyers in any of the three remaining games on the trip, general manager Ron Hextall said. "He won't be coming to Montreal, so I guess it's that serious," Hextall said of Mason's condition.

Looking rusty from a long layoff, the Flyers were fortunate to get a point Thursday night as their four-game winning streak ended with a 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Islanders at the Wells Fargo Center. Goalie Steve Mason made 28 saves and was the main reason the Flyers inched to within nine points of the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. "We left the extra point out there," Mason said after the Flyers completed a solid 4-0-1 homestand. "We kind of shot ourselves in the foot at the end of the second period, giving up two goals off of mistakes.

Nick Schultz, arguably the Flyers' steadiest defenseman this season, hadn't scored a goal since the spring of 2013. He was due. So it was understandable that Schultz was overjoyed after he capitalized on Petr Straka's hard work - the rookie left winger pounded away for three rapid-fire shots from in front - and scored on a rebound early in the second period Thursday. Schultz's goal snapped a 2-2 tie and sparked the Flyers to their third straight victory, a 5-2 win over Winnipeg at the Wells Fargo Center.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - The Flyers and New York Islanders have been chasing their glory days for decades, and one of them has finally put together a team that is a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. Hello, Islanders. The Flyers, setting the tone by allowing the first goal for the ninth time in 10 games, dropped a 7-4 decision to the speedy, upstart Islanders at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Monday afternoon. "We made too many mistakes and left the goalie hung out to dry," said former Islanders defenseman Mark Streit, who scored the Flyers' first goal.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Long before leaks in the roof, the unmistakable stench in the decrepit visiting locker room, and the dot-matrix scoreboard the Islanders swore was hanging by a thread, the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum had a mystique about it the first day Craig Berube set foot in there on Jan. 3, 1989. The Islanders were less than 6 years removed from four consecutive Stanley Cups. "I think when you came in here, it was just the aura of the building and the team at the time," Berube said.

The Flyers haven't been very good this season on the front end of back-to-back games. They haven't been much better on the back end. After another spotty performance, this is a team clearly at wits' end. The Flyers were swept in back-to-back games for the seventh time this season in a 4-0 loss Thursday to the Vancouver Canucks at the Wells Fargo Center. That came on the heels of a 1-0 loss Wednesday in Washington. The Flyers are 1-8 in the first game of a back-to-back and 2-6-1 in the second.

Flyers linemates Jake Voracek, who leads the NHL with 50 points, and Claude Giroux were named to the league's all-star team Saturday. The game will be played Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio, where Voracek spent the first three seasons of his career. He was dealt to the Flyers in 2011 for Jeff Carter and a first-round draft pick that produced Sean Couturier and a third-rounder that turned out to be Nick Cousins. Voracek, a 25-year-old right winger, will be making his first appearance in an All-Star Game.

The Flyers lost more than a hockey game Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. A lot more. They lost the services of talented goalie Steve Mason for an undetermined amount of time. Mason, who took the league's fourth-best save percentage (.933) in even-strength situations into the game, suffered an apparent injury to his right knee in the opening period of the Flyers' 3-1 loss to the tight-checking Boston Bruins. The Flyers would say only that Mason suffered a lower-body injury and would be reevaluated Sunday.

Earlier this week, a reporter told Flyers general manager Ron Hextall he looked glum as he walked into the pressroom and was about to start a news conference. "We're in 25th place in the league," Hextall replied, "and I'm supposed to come in here . . . cheery?" Hextall was in a better mood Thursday after watching the Flyers win their second straight, a hard-earned, 3-2 overtime victory over a Washington team that had lost just once in regulation in its previous 15 games. With a sellout crowd watching at the Wells Fargo Center, Jake Voracek's one-timer from the high slot deflected off a Washington player and into the net, giving the Flyers the dramatic win. "I got a lucky bounce, but it was a big goal," Voracek said of his power-play tally.
