Ray Emery G PHI 27 Mins

Emery has been nursing a lower-body injury the past few days, but will start in goal for the Flyers in Tuesday's preseason tilt with the Rangers, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com reports.

It's assumed that Emery was dealing with a groin ailment sustained during his outing last week against the Capitals, but he was cleared for a return to the crease after feeling fine during morning skate. Brought back by the Flyers on a one-year, $1 million contract in July, Emery will once again serve as Steve Mason's backup. The Flyers showed no hesitation to roll with Steve Mason on a near-every game basis by the second half of last season, so expect Emery to see one of the smaller workloads among backup goalies in 2014-15.

Ray Emery has agreed to a one-year, $1 million extension with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Emery wasn't able to beat Steve Mason out for the starting job in Philadelphia last season and we don't expect that to change in 2014-15. That said, Emery should get another 25 starts or so as the Flyers' backup goaltender.

The negotiations between the Philadelphia Flyers and Ray Emery are on hold.

The Flyers don't seem to be in a rush to re-sign him, but they haven't completely ruled it out either. Philadelphia has committed to using Steve Mason as its starter next season, so if Emery wants a decent shot at the number one job, he might have to go elsewhere.

The Philadelphia Flyers might re-sign Ray Emery.

Emery didn't have a great season, but he still should be a solid backup goaltender in 2014-15 if he's interested in that role. Emery might leave the Flyers in the hope that another team will give him a chance to compete for their starting job.

Ray Emery allowed four goals on 20 shots and was pulled in favor of the injured Steve Mason late in Tuesday night's Game 3, which the Flyers lost 4-1.

Mason stopped all three shots he faced in the final eight minutes of the game, meaning Emery might have seen his last action if Mason is good to go for Friday's Game 4. Emery is 1-2 with a .888 save percentage and 3.49 goals against average, signifying that if Philly has any shot at making a run, they will need Mason back tending the pipes.

Ray Emery will be in goal for the Flyers in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

Steve Mason has been ruled out for the contest, so Cal Heeter will serve as Emery's backup again. Emery bounced back from a rough start in Game 2 to help Philadelphia rally for a 4-2 victory. As a result, there's a good chance that he would've started Game 3 even if Mason was ready.

Ray Emery played a big role in the Philadelphia Flyers evening their series 1-1 against the New York Rangers thanks to a 4-2 Game 2 win on Sunday.

Emery got his first win since 2010-11 with the Anaheim Ducks, stopping 31 out of 33 shots. With Steve Mason's health in question, it should be interesting to see who starts for the Flyers in Game 3. Emery at least made an argument for himself with this performance.

Ray Emery will be between the pipes on Sunday.

Emery played in Game 1 as he allowed four goals on 36 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Rangers. With starter Steve Mason still unable to go due to an upper body injury, Emery will try to square the series at one apiece. Teammate Wayne Simmonds thought that Emery was terrific in Game 1 as he made numerous great saves.

Wayne Simmonds defended teammate Ray Emery's play in Philadelphia's 4-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 1 of the first round.

Emery was playing between the pipes because Steve Mason was unavailable due to an upper-body injury. Emery ended up stopping 32 of 36 shots. "Ray played unbelievable," Simmonds said. "He make the saves when he needed to. He made big saves. They had a four-minute power play there where they kind of stretched us out. They got two goals. I don't think he really had a chance on those. They were crossing passes. He played awesome for us. He played unreal."

Flyers goaltender Ray Emery struggled in a 4-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series Thursday night.

Starting in place of number one netminder Steve Mason (upper body), Emery allowed four goals on 36 shots in the defeat, though he only deserves part of the blame as the Flyers were soundly outplayed on this night. With Mason's status for Game 2 still unclear, it's looking like Philly may have to use its backup again.
