There are plenty of metrics showing the Flyer's defense is decent. They play well and then have sudden, catastrophic collapses. Same defense Mason played in front of-- and teams play a little worse for backups when you crunch the numbers-- and he pushes out a .936 (granted it is a small sample size and he was definitely in the zone).
it didn't hurt that the team also played some of their best hockey the last two weeks of the season.
