*STEVE MASON, YOUR NHL FIRST STAR OF THE WEEK. Folks, [BSH]

*In fact, it's been the Steve Mason show the last few games. Nothing wrong with that. [Inquirer]

*A better-than-before defense should get SOME of the credit too, but as Charlie notes in his observations from the win over the Predators, it's more Mase than anything else. [BSH]

*But we're Flyers fans so if something is good, there must be something taken away to punish us for tasting happiness: Matt Read is hurt and we have no idea when he'll be back. [BSH]

*Goalie prospect Carter Hart is getting a lot of well-deserved attention lately. [CSN Philly]

*Another prospect performing well in his league right now is German Rubtsov, over in the KHL. [Sons of Penn]

*In fact, let's take a look at ALL the prospects! [BSH]

*Specifically the Phantoms! [Highland Park Hockey]

*Dave Hakstol went onto Canadian radio to talk about how awesome Wayne Simmonds is. [Sportsnet]

*Are we looking at the golden age of goaltending in the NHL? [Puck Daddy]

*We might be in the golden age but no one is going to use these backup goalies to make the case. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The NHL's concussion spotters did what they are supposed to do during Sunday's Edmonton Oilers game, but Connor McDavid wasn't happy about it. [SB Nation]

*And finally, 25 games into the season, let's get a full Corsi report on the league. People love Corsi. [Hockey Graphs]
