Ray Emery will obviously get the lions share of the work, but that leaves the #2 option open. Rob Zepp would be the first goalie called up under normal circumstances, but the 33 year old who won his first NHL game earlier this season was injured over the weekend while playing for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. His injury is only being called a lower-body injury currently. Gotta love the ambiguity.
This leaves the Flyers with one option, the only other goalie they have under contract, 21 year-old Anthony Stolarz. Stolarz has played 22 games with the Phantoms this season and owns a .911 save percentage with a 7-10-1 record.
Ron Hextall is brimming with confidence, "Is he ready for this level? Probably not."
It remains to be seen how long Steve Mason will be out. Until then Ray Emery will man the helm in the net and we may see Anthony Stolarz make his debut as well. Luckily the schedule gets significantly easier after Montreal, including 4 games against lowly Columbus & Buffalo. It's going to be a pivotal couple of weeks ahead.
