Description: Chris Mason stopped all 43 shots he faced in the Thrashers' 1-0 win over Philadelphia on Thursday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Mason earned his first shutout of the season while improving his record to 13-11-3. His first season in Atlanta hasn't been a great one, but he has played better than Ondrej Pavelec recently and is starting to earn more starts.

Description: Mason came on in relief of the injured Ondrej Pavelec Friday night and stopped all 25 shots he faced in a shootout loss.
Insight: This was only Mason's second appearance since the all-star break, and he yielded four goals in the other. It's tough to expect a whole lot should he need to fill in for Pavelec further. (

Description: The Atlanta Thrashers have placed goalie Chris Mason on injured reserve and have recalled goalie Peter Mannino from the AHL. Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: Mason suffered a lower-body injury during Saturday's game, possibly a knee injury. Don't expect Mannino to play a whole lot, as this roster move won't affect the starting status of Ondrej Pavelec.
