    • Steve Mason will get the nod for Philadelphia on Friday night in Game 4.
      Advice: He missed the first two games of the Flyers' first round series versus the New York Rangers because of an upper-body injury and returned to serve as Ray Emery's backup in Game 3.

    • Steve Mason isn't sure if he will start in Game 4, but he's available if needed.
      Advice: Mason served as the backup goaltender on Tuesday. Ray Emery allowed four goals on 16 shots before being pulled, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Mason get the nod on Friday.

    • Steve Mason (upper body) is healthy enough to serve as Philadelphia's backup goaltender on Tuesday.
      Advice: Ray Emery will still start for the Flyers. With Mason back, Emery will be on a shorter leash, but Emery's been solid thus far and it wouldn't be surprising if Philadelphia ran with him until he gives them a reason to do otherwise.

    • Steve Mason won't return to the lineup on Tuesday from his upper-body injury.

    • Steve Mason will not play Sunday because of an upper body injury.
      Advice: Mason had a good practice on Saturday but tired near the end of it so Ray Emery will start Game 2 with Cal Heeter as his backup. Mason is close to 100 percent and hopes to be there on Tuesday when the Flyers play their first home game of the playoffs.

    • Bryan Bickell scored his first goal of the playoffs in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over St. Louis.
      Advice: His tip-in late in the third period sent the game into an extra session, where Patrick Kane won it to tie the series at 2-2. Bickell started the contest alongside Jonathan Toews and Kane, but Marian Hossa took Kane's spot later in the match. Bickell also added four shots and a team-leading seven hits during his 18:07 of ice time.

    • Bryan Bickell racked up eight hits in Game 3 versus St. Louis.
      Advice: The 2013-14 campaign has been disappointing for Bickell after he signed a four-year, $16 million contract in the summer. He was excellent in the playoffs a year ago, which helped him earn that deal, but he doesn't have a point in three contests yet this series. If he can recapture some of that magic then he could erase some of the hardships he endured during the regular season.

    • Evgeni Malkin registered an assist in the Penguins' 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus Wednesday night.
      Advice: Malkin has no goals and four assists in four playoff games. Sidney Crosby has matched those totals and the Penguins need more from both of them going forward. Well, really, they need to find a way to allow less than three goals in a playoff contest. However, it seems far more likely that Malkin and Crosby will bounce back compared to the odds of Pittsburgh playing sound defensively while simultaneously getting consistent goaltending from Marc-Andre Fleury.

    • Evgeni Malkin regained some confidence in Game 3 on Monday.
      Advice: Malkin hasn't found the back of the net yet in the Penguins' first round series against Columbus, but he does have three assists in three games. He played alongside Jussi Jokinen and James Neal on Monday and liked how his line played. "We need to just play the same," Malkin said.
