Steve Mason will be back in net for the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday.

The Flyers host the New York Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center in Game 4 of their Best-of-Seven series. The Rangers currently hold a 2-1 series advantage.

Mason's return was announced by the team through its official Twitter account Thursday afternoon.

The netminder has been out since April 12 with an undisclosed upper-body injury. He was knocked over and hit his head on the ice in the Flyers' second-last game of the season, versus the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ray Emery has started for the Flyers in Mason's absence with Cal Heeter serving as back-up.

In 61 games this season, the 25-year-old Mason posted a 33-18-7 record with a 2.50 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage.

Emery has posted a 1-2 record so far in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 3.49 goals-against average an an .888 save percentage.
