The Flyers will have a new look this season as they enter the 2014-15 season without two familiar faces - Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen. You'll able to get a better look at the new faces thanks to some overhauls at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Philadelphia Inquirer's Sam Carchidi reports the Wells Fargo Center added 25,000 new LED lights for their ice surface which reduce energy consumption by 66%. Winger Jakub Voracek said he loved the new lights while goaltender Steve Mason needs more time.
Mason, 26, stated he liked the new lights but was not expecting them to be that bright. He was forced to switch from his new mask to his old mask because of the glare of the new lightning. Mason normally uses sand paper to sand down his mask, which he has since done. Mason said once he gets used to the lights they will be helpful as they eliminate some of the previous shadows.
Mason posted a 1.97 GAA and a .939 SV% allowing eight goals on 131 shots against in a little over four games against the Rangers in the 2014 playoffs. The 25-year-old tied a career-high with 33 wins this season going 33-18-7 with a 2.50 GAA and a .917 SV%.
