Steve Mason is finding his top form at the right time and the Philadelphia Flyers are responding to his lead during their season-high five-game winning streak. Mason, named the NHL’s First Star of the Week on Monday, is expected to go after his fifth consecutive victory when the Flyers host the road-weary Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Aleksander Barkov is starting to warm up after recording a goal for the second time in three games on Monday – his eighth point in the last nine contests. Linemate Jaromir Jagr also tallied against the Bruins to move within six points of Mark Messier (1,887) for second place on the all-time list. Reilly Smith, who registered his second 50-point season in 2015-16, posted his third in 13 games on Monday and has notched only nine in 26 contests.

Philadelphia’s top scorers are putting up big numbers during the streak while defensemen Ivan Provorov and Michael Del Zotto each have recorded a pair of goals over the last four games. Wayne Simmonds, who leads the team with 24 points, has registered eight in the last eight contests while captain Claude Giroux (23) has notched six in a six-game span. Jakub Voracek, who also has collected 23 points, has posted six in his last five contests after suffering through an eight-game drought.

Florida D Jason Demers recorded a goal for the second time in three games Monday, tying the contest with 1:29 left in regulation.

Philadelphia RW Matt Read (oblique) is expected to miss four weeks after leaving Sunday’s 4-2 victory over Nashville.

The Flyers won 3-1 at Florida on Nov. 22 and are 2-0-1 against the Panthers in their last three meetings
