Following the Flyers morning skate at the Wells Fargo Center prior to Game 3 vs. New York Rangers, general manager Paul Holmgren announced the following injury update.

Flyers goaltender Steve Mason is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, while forward Steve Downie is out indefinitely.

Mason has been out of action since Saturday, Apr. 12 when he left the game after the second period following a collision involving Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jayson Megna and Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald near the end of the period.

He missed the final regular season game vs. Carolina and the opening two games of the First Round series against the Rangers.

Downie missed the final 12 games of the regular season, and the first two playoff games vs. Rangers, last appearing in the Flyers-Blues game at St. Louis on Mar. 22. He has 17 points (3g-14a) in 49 games since coming over to the Flyers from the Colorado Avalanche on Oct. 31.

The Flyers face off against the New York Rangers tonight in Game 3 of the First Round series of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with the series tied one game apiece (8pm on CSN & 97.5 The Fanatic).
