Emery gave up three goals on 37 shots in Saturday's loss to the Predators.
A great effort from Emery, who was beat three times on the power play in the loss. With Steve Mason (back) nearing a return, expect Razor to fall back into the backup role very soon. With a 7-5-1 record and a .919 even-strength save percentage, Emery is a decent fantasy option whenever Mason gets the night off.

Emery will be between the pipes Tuesday against the Predators, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Emery will start for the third time in four games Saturday while Steve Mason (back) remains unavailable, but his run as the Flyers' No. 1 starter could be nearing an end. Mason was able to get in an on-ice workout Saturday and said he felt "close to 100 percent," perhaps signaling his return to the net for Monday's game against the Coyotes. If this is indeed the swan song for Emery, he wouldn't seem to be a viable play Saturday, as he'll match up against Pekka Rinne, who has been unquestionably the league's best goalie this season.

Emery collected his third consecutive win Tuesday, making 22 saves in a 4-2 win over the Wild.
Back in net after watching from the bench while 32-year-old rookie Rob Zepp earned his first NHL win Sunday, Emery delivered a sound performance. However, despite his recent successes, his rate stats remain hideous, and Emery will be back on the bench once Steve Mason returns from his back injury, which could be as soon as the beginning of next week.

Emery will get the start in goal Tuesday against the Wild, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com reports.
With starting goaltender Steve Mason still recovering from a back injury, Emery will get his second start in a row between the pipes on Tuesday against Minnesota. Emery enters Tuesday's contest with a 3.13 GAA and .894 save percentage on the season. The veteran goaltender remains a low-end option in most formats.

Emery stopped only 21 of the 25 shots he faced Saturday against the Maple Leafs, but road the coattails of his offense to the victory.
Claude Giroux, Jacob Voracek and company lit up opposing goalie Jonathan Bernier for seven goals on the evening, allowing Emery to come away with his second victory in December. Emery owns a winning record for the season and could be in line for an increased workload in light of the recent back injury to No. 1 goalie Steve Mason, but it might not be wise to invest in shallower formats just yet. Mason's timetable is not entirely clear just yet and might not extend much further beyond the weekend, and Emery's ratios (3.13 GAA, .894 save percentage) are still rather porous for the season.

Emery will get the start in goal Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With Steve Mason going down with a upper-body injury and unavailable for the Flyers' two weekend games, Emery will get the nod for at least the first of those tilts. If he performs well and isn't forced to make an overwhelming amount of saves Saturday, Emery could draw the nod over backup Rob Zepp on Sunday in Winnipeg, but his workload beyond that will be fully dependent on how much time Mason misses.

Emery allowed just a single goal on 18 shots Tuesday and picked up his first win since Oct. 28 against New Jersey.
This was one of Emery's strongest starts of the year so far, and it reversed a recent trend of struggles -- he'd turned in five fairly poor appearances (a .900 or lower save mark, and the .900 came in relief) in a row.

Emery will get the start Thursday against the Devils, CSN's Sam Carchidi reports.
Emery will start Thursday for the first time since Nov. 29. He will take on a struggling Devils team that has won just three times since Nov. 15.

Emery faced 34 shots, allowing the Rangers to score four times in Saturday's 5-2 loss.
Though several of the goals came off bad turnovers, Emery also allowed an ugly, third-period wraparound goal. His GAA has ballooned to 3.16, his save percentage has dipped below .900, and he now has just four wins in nine games. Emery should only be used in a pinch -- the Flyers defense simply isn't reliable enough regardless of who's behind them.

Emery will start Saturday against the Rangers, Mike Morale of NHL.com reports.
Emery will look to snap a four-game losing streak Saturday, but he will be challenged by a Rangers squad that shut out the Flyers each of the last two times the teams met up, including Friday night.
