The Philadelphia Flyers played a seven game playoff run before losing to the Rangers, but they played a few games without main goalie Steve Mason.

Mason was injured at the end of the regular season, during a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins after getting knocked over and hitting the back of his head on the ice. He left the game with an upper-body injury and appeared to be day-to-day.

He skated and was said to be having good and bad days. He returned in game 3 for the final ten minutes to see how he was feeling, and when Ray Emery was struggling. The following game he came back and pulled out a win. He continued playing well but it was not enough to have the team move on.

After the elimination, Mason admitted that he was suffering concussion symptoms up until the night before game 4. This left many wondering why the team did not make him follow protocol.
 No word if he is still experiencing symptoms now but he is given the summer off to recover and come back strong next season.
