Emery stopped all seven shots that he faced after replacing Steve Mason for the third period of Saturday's loss to the Lightning. In Emery's last three outings he is 2-0-0 with a 1.27 GAA and .953 SV% so he should make for a solid Sunday spot-start against the Rangers.

Emery will face the team he won a Stanley Cup with last season. He has not been as good as he was last year (17-1-0 / 1.94 GAA / .922 SV%) but he is also not playing behind the same caliber of team. Emery is in a backup role once again and has got out to a 3-5-0, 2.57 GAA and .908 start to the season. Although it is his former team and he might be playing a little bit harder against them… It is still a terrible matchup.
Emery stopped 31 of 34 shots in a loss to the Lightning on Wednesday. He is firmly behind Steve Mason for the Flyers starting job, but Emery in 3-2-0 with a 1.42 GAA and .947 SV% in his last five starts - making him a good spot-start option whenever he gets the call.
