ABOUT THE FLYERS Philly is coming off a 4-3 shootout win over the Coyotes Tuesday, a game in which Ray Emery was yanked less than six minutes into the game and replaced by Steve Mason, who was back in uniform for the first time since Jan. 10. Mason helped the Flyers rally, making 22 saves and stopping three attempts in the shootout. Jakub Voracek continues to lead the NHL in scoring with 17 goals and 40 assists. He is now just five points shy of his career-best point total of 62, set last season. A bad mix for the Jets: the Flyers have the NHL's fifth-best power play. A good mix for the Jets, provided they get a power play: Philly's penalty kill is third-last in the NHL at 74.6 per cent. Zac Rinaldo will serve the second of his eight-game suspension tonight for his hit on Penguins blue-liner Kris Letang. Flyers D Mark Streit leads the club in average ice time at 22 minutes, 20 seconds. That would rank him fifth on the Jets, behind Toby Enstrom (24:23), Jacob Trouba (23:22), Dustin Byfuglien (23:03) and Zach Bogosian (22:24).
