Lundqvist shines in Rangers’ win over Flyers

A slow start paired with Henrik Lundqvist producing a great game for the opposition led to the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers tonight. The Blueshirts’ goaltender had a 37-save effort, while Chris Kreider produced a two-point performance with a goal and an assist. Rick Nash and Daniel Carcillo also scored for New York, as the Flyers failed to produce a point in the standings for a second straight game. The score may not show it, but the Flyers did show up tonight in the first period. After the Orange and Black fell behind by two goals, …

Meanwhile, players like Ben Bishop, Josh Harding, Steve Mason, and Semyon Varlamov have all exceeded expectations.

Flyperbole: Rumor Ruminations on Steve Mason’s Next Contract, Henrik Lundqvist

MASON MISSION I am absolutely terrified of the contract that the Flyers are going to offer Steve Mason. Mase has been absolutely stellar this year. He has surpassed my wildest expectations thus far. But I’m waiting for the bottom to fall out of the bottom of the cardboard box that is Flyers goaltending.   Maybe I feel like Charlie Brown and Flyers goaltending is Lucy with the football, but I get the feeling that Mason will get a nice, long contract, and immediately start playing like hot garbage. I could be way off-base here. I HOPE I’m way off-base here. …
