Emery is likely to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports.Emery has been mostly terrible this season when pressed into action for Steve Mason's numerous injuries, but he's fared well in his latest stint as the Flyers' primary netminder. The 32-year-old has gone 2-0-2 with a 2.24 GAA and .922 save percentage over his last four turns, which should be enough for him to hold off the recently-recalled Rob Zepp for starting duties for the time being.

Emery turned away 21 of the 22 shots he faced in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Sabres.It's Emery's first win since taking over the starting job with Steve Mason sidelined, but it's hard to get too excited as he wasn't heavily tested and faced the worst offensive club in the league. While the Flyers have earned at least a point in all three games since he's taken over, Emery still sports a 3.17 GAA and .893 save percentage, so he should only be looked at in favorable matchups.

Emery will start in net against the Sabres on Sunday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Emery only has nine wins on the season and he recorded just two of those victories in the months of January and February.

Emery gave up four goals on 33 shots in Friday's overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.Emery has lost two straight games, but he's helped the Flyers earn a point in both of them, stopping 68 of 74 shots (.918 save percentage). He's playing well right now in absence of Steve Mason (knee), but owns a 9-9-3 record on the season with a lackluster .890 save percentage and 3.29 GAA. The Flyers haven't lost in regulation in eight straight games, so Emery could be worth looking ai in Mason's absence. Emery may pick up a few wins, but with the lackluster defense in front of him, don't expect great rate stats.

Emery is slated to make the start in goal Friday against the Blue Jackets, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Making his first start Tuesday since Steve Mason hit injured reserve with a knee injury, Emery turned in one of his best outings of the season, stopping 39 of 41 shots in a losing effort against the Canadiens. While a 3.25 GAA and .891 save percentage over 22 games this season make Emery a far from reliable goalie option for the Flyers, he should enjoy a fair amount of job security during Mason's absence. Rob Zepp, who pushed Emery for No. 1 duties when Mason miss time in January with another knee ailment, has since suffered a leg injury of his own while playing at AHL Lehigh Valley and was bypassed for a call-up. With only unproven 21-year-old Anthony Stolarz behind him on the depth chart, Emery's workload figures to be heavy until Mason is activated.

Emery delivered a strong effort Tuesday in Montreal, saving 39 of 41 shots in a 2-1 overtime loss.He was arguably outplaying Carey Price until David Desharnais got a puck past him 3:27 into overtime. It's nice to see Emery turn in such a sparkling start against a quality opponent, but he's also offered up a hearty collection of ugly outings this season and hasn't built up much trust in either his fantasy owners or the Flyers' coaching staff.

Emery is slated to start Tuesday's game against Montreal, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.With Steve Mason sidelined for the time being with a knee issue, Emery is in line to see the bulk of the Flyers' starts in goal moving forward. In the process, he'll look to improve on the modest numbers (3.34 GAA and .886 save percentage) that he has put up to date over his 21 appearances this season.

Emery made five saves on six shots after entering midway through the second period in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Capitals.
Starter Steve Mason had to be helped off the ice, and while the extent of the injury is currently unknown, he was unable to get back to the dressing room on his own power. Emery should be in line to get the bulk of the starts in his absence, especially with their other potential backup option Rob Zepp suffering an injury in the AHL on Saturday. Emery has struggled this season with a 3.34 GAA and .886 save percentage, so even if he does get the starts going forward he'd present a risky fantasy option.

Emery allowed two goals on four shots in less than six minutes before being pulled from Tuesday's eventual win over Arizona.
The yanking clearly came in the nick of time, as a now-healthy Steve Mason stopped 22 of 23 in relief and backstopped the Flyers to a shootout win. All things considered, it could be quite a while until we see Emery take his place between the pipes again.
