The only thing more gorgeous than the Devils’ throwback jerseys on Thursday night was Taylor Hall’s breakaway dangle against Flyers goalie Steve Mason.
There are moves good enough to beat a goaltender, and then there are moves good enough to injure a goaltender. Hall had the latter.
After being undressed by Hall’s one-handed move early in the third period, Mason had trouble getting back on his skates. It wasn’t because of shame or disappointment from getting deked out, but rather because he suffered a lower body injury on the play.
Mason was forced to leave the game but, thankfully, reports following the game indicated it may have just been a case of the cramps after Hall stole his lunch money one-on-one.
