Why Was Steve Mason Playing?

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

For a man who swore he'd stick to the long-term vision that got him hired, Ron Hextall last week showed the same shortsightedness that has kept the Flyers coming up empty since 1975.

Under no circumstances should Steve Mason have been in net on Thursday night, let alone Saturday.

Alas, the allure of a last-gasp, miracle run to the Stanley Cup playoffs got the best of Hextall.

Now, the Flyers are lucky Mason - one of just three pieces Hextall should be hellbent on building the future around - will miss only the next 2 weeks with a "lower-body" injury.
