Steve Mason was simply fantastic for the Flyers in March, going 8-2-2 with a 1.88 goals-against-average and posting a .933 save percentage. He will make his 13th start in his last 14 games, including his eighth in a row but he's shown no signs of slowing down.

The difference today could be the play of the special teams on both sides. Ottawa ranks 28th on the power play and 29th on the penalty kill and hasn't scored a power-play goal in 14 straight games. Philadelphia, meanwhile, was 28 for 31 on the penalty kill in March while allowing just three power-play goals (tied for the NHL's fewest during the month).
