Flyers goalie Steve Mason remains questionable for Philadelphia's opening first-round playoff game against the Rangers in New York on Thursday. According to Sarah Baicker of CSN Philly, head coach Craig Berube was less forthcoming about Mason's status following Tuesday's practice than he had been after the team's 6-5 loss at home to the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.

Baicker reported that Berube had initially been confident that Mason would be on the ice against the Rangers on Thursday night, but on Tuesday he wouldn't say whether his goalie would be available then, saying only "that’s not been determined yet."

The extent of the injury is still mostly unknown, with general manager Paul Holmgren only describing it as an "upper body injury." He said more will be known about Mason's status on Wednesday when the team resumes practice.

Mason, 25, appeared in 61 games this season for Philadelphia en route to a career-high 33 wins. If he's unable to go Thursday, backup Ray Emery will get the start for Game 1, according to the report.
