PHILADELPHIA — Steve Mason was outstanding on Tuesday night.  That’s Steve Mason.  Playing well.

More so than any coaching change, that seemed to be the biggest story to come out of the Philadelphia Flyers side of their 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers.  But sure, there was that whole coaching change as well, and it was Craig Berube’s first game as the head coach after the firing of Peter Laviolette.  After the game, in a very packed locker room, I was able to ask Mason a few questions.

The Trentonian: How do you guys make sure you keep this new-found momentum going forward?

Steve Mason: “It starts tomorrow at practice.  We can’t just be content with one good feeling after a nice win.  We have to just come to the rink working hard.  I know Chief is really going to drive that work ethic into us, and it’s something that we really have to relish.  Just have that good feeling and keep it coming.”

The Trentonian: From a goaltending standpoint, how do things change when there’s a coaching change?

Steve Mason: “They don’t, really.  The coach has the final say as to who’s playing, but I deal mostly with Jeff Reese, so you have a good relationship with the head coach, but at the same time you don’t deal with him at all that often because you have your own individual coach, pretty much.”
