Video- Steve Mason Not A Happy Goalie After 2-1 Loss By Philadelphia To Dallas

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

As the horn sounded to end the Flyers' 2-1 loss to Dallas, winger Jake Voracek smashed his stick against the boards and heaved what was left of it down the Wells Fargo Center ice Tuesday night.

A few minutes later, goalie Steve Mason did some heaving of his own, throwing verbal jabs at his teammates for their mostly lifeless effort over the final 50 minutes.

"There was no desperation," said Mason, who kept the Flyers in the game with a brilliant 37-save performance. "It's tough to come in the room after games like that. We need to have a much better effort, and it just wasn't there. I'm embarrassed and I hope everyone else is embarrassed, too, because to play like that at home in a situation where we have to come up big . . . and we come up like that."

About time he blew up. The guy’s been left out on an island all year AND I don’t think he’s 100%. I mean, he’s got a .923 SV% and a 2.32 GAA. The Flyers routinely give up 30+ shots every night. He’s the only thing that’s been good on the team this year, even with Vorachek’s scoring.

This has been the story of his career so far. Playing in Columbus, he carried that bunch of scrubs and then took the hit for all the losses.

That has to mentally exhausting on a goalie to put forth your best effort on almost every night and have those in front of you just going through the motions getting you barraged with shots.
