Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Steve Mason left this afternoon’s game against the Boston Bruins with 12:53 remaining in the first period.
Mason made a routine save on Bruins’ forward Craig Cunningham and then collapsed favoring his right leg.
Update: The team is calling it a lower body injury.
Mason underwent an MRI for an undisclosed injury earlier in the week.
The 26-year-old is 8-12-6 this season with a 2.48 G.A.A. and a .919 save percentage.
Ray Emery has come on in relief of Mason.
Mason missed four games last month with a back injury.
